We here at 580 Modellers are fortunate enough to not only have a most accomplished modelling crew but some extremely talented and widely travelled photographers
in our midst; one of our number is even contributing to publications such as the new Duke Hawkins series looking at aircraft in detail. Fortunately for us they have agreed to trawl their archives to offer us some fantastic ‘photo essays’
on a wide variety of subjects, allowing us to offer you a series of short photo essays on a variety of topics.
The purpose of these photo essays
is to unashamedly offer both modelling inspiration and an excellent source of subject material.
Our first two In Focus submissions
will be F-5E Aggressors and Japanese F-4 Phantoms, and there may well be more than one instalment on each! Others in the pipeline include BAe Hawks, MiG-31s, airliner differences, the Cypriot Air Force and hopefully even firebombers.
As with the other new sections it is our intention is to provide you with a new photo essay every few weeks.
