ON THE COVER

Few models leave a lasting impression quite like Matt Jones’ Sea Vixen seen here performing during a PSSA fly-in at the Great Orme, North Wales. It’s a glider but with a museum quality finish that any turbine modeller would be proud of. Simon Cocker has all the details in his latest soaring round-up starting on page 48.
