Sometime in the early 90s a new magazine for plastic model builders hit the market.  I don’t remember the name anymore but IIRC it was primarily for aircraft modellers.  What I DO remember is a Vampire on the cover with the heading “Sexy Vamps!”.

Mom later told me I was about to catch hell for bringing “that kind” of magazine home until she realized it was about model airplanes…

  1. Great picture! My brother managed to get into the RAF College Cranwell in the 1950s and ended up flying the Vampire, which he described as easy to fly, but there was no way to re-start the engine if it stalled. A dead-stick landing was the only way to handle that.
