In this fourth issue of Aces High, we deal with the Mediterranean Theater of Operations (MTO) during WWII. Bearing in mind that it would be impossible to cover the aircraft of all the nations which fought in this area, in just one issue, we have this time decided to focus on just Luftwaffe and Royal Air Force subjects. We have chosen the most iconic machines used by the greatest pilots: a Spitfire Mk.Vb, with its distinctive Vokes tropical filter; a Kittyhawk Mk.I, wearing the famous sharkmouth nose marking; a Bf 109 F-4 trop, finished as the mount of the legendary ace, Hans-Joachim Marseille; a Beaufighter Mk.VIF, with a slightly more unusual desert night-fighter scheme, and a Bf 110 E-2 trop, which served as fighter, bomber and ground attack aircraft. To complement our aircraft builds, we include step-by-step articles which show you how to paint a pilot figure, and a half-tracked truck.

This next issue of our aircraft modelling magazine, is fully dedicated to jet aircraft that participated in the Vietnam conflict. We travel to this hot and humid location, and try to revive the atmosphere of those air battles between the small and agile MiGs, and their opponents from the USAF, US Navy, and Marines. Each of the latter service branches is represented by one aircraft, featured within the pages of Aces High Issue Five, along with a pair of their opponents; two agile MiGs, in spectacular camouflage schemes. To complement these builds, we include a new gallery section and step-by-step articles which show you how to build a figure vignette, and also finish an auxiliary vehicle. So jettison your drop tanks, activate all weapon systems, and fire your afterburners, as we now take to the skies of Vietnam with the latest issue of Aces High magazine!

This new AHM issue is dedicated to a series of jet aircraft which built their combat legend during the past seven decades. After the end of World War II, France developed a number of interesting aircraft designs, from the MD450 Ouragan, through the Mystère/Super Mystère family, the Étendard/Super Étendard and the most famous Mirage family, which did not only successfully serve in the domestic front, but also made their way to the arsenals of several air forces all around the world, and proved their combat capabilities in different conditions. Another significant design, the Jaguar attack aircraft, was developed as a joint project with United Kingdom. In this issue we take you for a tour of these famous aircraft, with a variety of models and camouflage schemes which will delight every modeller.
