A few months ago I wrote an article about my two Unicraft flying subs and sent it in to the Dutch IPMS magazine.
And, surprise, surprise, the published it in the latest issue  <_< <_<

Here are the posts on these two models on the forum:

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Well done! I bet they jumped on it as how often do you get a nice article about flying submarines! :thumbsup:

Cool.  I had one of my pieces of Blake's 7 fanfic published in an anthology a few years back.  More on topic, I did all the  design and pre-press production work on two of John Baxter's books.

Belated congrats Tom!

I saw the article in the IPMS Netherlands, but didn't realize it was yours.. :wub: was thinking, oh, this should be checked by Tom as both models are from Unicraft.

Anyway, a great piece of work. Easy to read, great in historical back ground and a source for pointers about Unicraft. Congratulations it was published as it is really something different than the usual stuff. I glad the editorial team had the guts to publish it.
