From Leningrad to Narva: An illustrated study of the battles in the northern Baltic area, January-September 1944.
In January 1944, the Red Army finally succeeded in putting to an end one of the most dramatic sieges in the history of warfare; that of Leningrad. Soviet spearheads quickly dislodged the Wehrmacht from the city, but once they reached the prewar border with Estonia, they were stopped dead in their tracks by a very determined Axis resistance. There, at the river Narva, Germans, Estonians, and Waffen-SS volunteers and conscripts from all over Europe stood firm for several months against numerous Soviet attacks. By doing so, they were able to cripple the ambitious military and political plans of Joseph Stalin and to effectively postpone the Soviet liberation of the Baltic States for six months.
Written by a leading Bulgarian researcher, the book provides an expert analysis of this little-known battle. A considerable number of German and Soviet wartime documents were obtained which enabled the author to tell the story from both sides. The book contains many unpublished photographs.

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.

The BOXER has also participated in Afghanistan with a desert camouflage. This DVD in PAL format contains hundreds of photos of all its details such as the suspension, interior, armor, crew and troops and has the A1 Afghanistan version as well as the A0. This DVD also contains software to see the photographs in transparent mode or in gallery mode. Also, all the photographs are high definition with watermarks so you can print them using your own printer and can make enlargements of the details that are of the most interest to you when you are building your model. The content of this DVD is the equivalent of 4 books of 76 pages, but at a much lower price. If what you are looking for is the best photographic references at an affordable price, this is the option for you. This all new series is the most innovative & thorough reference available for modelers & historians.
When we decided to launch the Modelling Full Ahead project, we were aware that in an eighty page publication it was possible to condense the information needed to build a specific warship. But as modelling is evolving nowadays with it’s curiosity, techniques, innovation, history, and certainly everything that pushes us to build a scale model, this cannot only be achieved with a monographic series.
Bearing this in mind and in response to the multitude of suggestions we received, we offer you a parallel to the monographs series. In this special issue we will deal with difficulties that may occur during the building stages, such as working with photo-etch, advanced painting, scratch-building, diorama composition, etc. With this new guide we will not only help you to build your models but also have the possibility to tell its history.
