RADIO CONTROL MODELS & ELECTRONICS

VOLUME 63 ISSUE 10

October 2020

 

 

ON THE COVER

In this month's Model Magic, Alex Whittaker pays tribute to a much-respected German scale modeller, Gerhard Reinsch, who recently passed away. This big, yellow Tiger Moth is one of two of Gehard's models that Alex will be taking a close look at. No pilots though, as Alex's photo session took place during early flight trials.
