I am reminded, whenever I get to build a supercarrier in 1:700 scale, I must remember to add soot pigments to dirty up the entire surface of the top deck, especially for darkening the painted stripes around the top side of the deck. 🙂

Thanks for sharing! How was the vendor room? Get any loot?
11. September, 01:32
Alec K
You bet. The vendor room was very good, although I missed the vendors from overseas (usually Eduard and Special Hobby both have a large presence, as well as Tamiya and Zoukei Mura, to name a few). As far as the loot, the wallet did not escape injury... 😄

Alec, I'm impressed! Not only by the huge amount of models, quality - also the number of categories is very high!
I guess 681/688 is yours?
11. September, 12:24
Alec K
Hello Bugs - you are right, there was a LOT of models on the tables (2700+ entries, if memory serves). It certainly felt like an excellent turnout, not surprising considering the COVID impact on such events. Not sure how contests compare in Europe, but US organizers try to keep the entries per category to no more than 15-20 (my guess), hence many categories are split during the contest based on turnout.

And you are correct, my little Avia competed in the scratch-built category 🙂

Your tip on photo 97 is very smart - I have had glue creep up on several sliding canopies.

More than well deserved Alec for that effort and that stunning result with this old rather mediocre kit as base 👍

Squadron/Signal "In Action" books numbering explained.

Hello fellow modelers. I have recently added a few Squadron/Signal books to my stash and was perplexed by the numbering system. Specifically, I wondered why some aviation "In Action" series books started with 1 and others with 10 (these numbers are printed on the cover in the top left corner).

I sent an inquiry to https://daviddoylebooks.com/ and received a detailed explanation the next day from Mr. Doyle. Here it is without alteration for those interested in such minutiae:

________________________

I will start with the specific title you asked about: 1210 has 60 pages, 10210 has 80 pages. 1210 is staple bound, 10210 is perfect bound. Perfect bound books have a spine, and on the spine Squadron printed the catalog number, title and author's name. Staple bound books have no spine, and when they are on the shelf, you can't tell what an individual book is without sliding it out to reveal the cover.

To address the entire series, in 2014 Squadron began to mandate that the In Action books have at least 80 pages (a few have 88 pages). As the supply of the older books, such as 1210, was exhausted, the authors were asked to add material to increase the size of the books. This also gave us the chance to make any needed corrections. The reissued books were renumbered with a five-digit catalog number instead of a four-digit number.

At about the same time, they began experimenting with hardcover books. 20% of the initial printing of a given title (during this experimental period) were hard cover, the remainder were soft cover. The numbers for the hard cover editions began with 5, 6 or 7 - depending on the series of book. I don't believe that the Marauder book was offered in hard cover, so we will use my B-17 Flying Fortress book as an example:

First offering: catalog number SS1219 - 72 pages, issued in 2010 (perfect bound)
Second offering: catalog number SS12019 - 80 pages, issued in 2014 (also perfect bound) - hardcover, issued in 2014, catalog number 50219
Later offerings - all catalog number SS12019, 80 pages, but no further printing of hardbound.

I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
David
