A chap posted a picture of instructions for making a cut out card recognition model of a FW190 from the Feb 1943 edition 

I had a dabble at converting that for lasercutting in MDF

Were these instructions a regular feature? If so I might have to get hold of some more issues

Eeeeerrmm?

That looks good Alistair, I'm surprised how recognisable it is. I didn't know they used cardboard models.

I don’t know if this was a one off or a regular thing though. If so I might buy some issues and make a collection of ‘em

I didn't know about these but was aware of the cards and wooden models. As an aside I found this

Thanks, that Mustang looks like a very similar layout and construction to the FW190 so they might have been a regular feature

I’ve just bought 12 issues from evilbay so should soon find out if this was a regular feature. If so I’ll post
