A quick post. Holly (my Daughter) is now back in the UK following her two years in Thailand. On her return, earlier this week I was given these two magazines;
GiGa Hobby vol. 101 from June and Hobby Japan from July 2013.
Both magazines are in Thai, but full of how-to pictures and loads of Gundam illustrations. I find that the picture led how-to articles are of a superior quality to UK magazines like Military Modeller as the step-by-step photos are so much easier to follow. The subject matter is a little insular - Gundam, but the techniques to model these very intricate models are going to be of use to modellers of other genres.
I now have quite a collection of these magazines each fully illustrated and each over 100 pages long. If only I could find a way of translating them.
