I usually pick up a few magazines when I'm in France, including a copy or two of Vae Victis, Trucks and Tracks, Aerojournal or Wing Masters, amongst others.

This time round, the I haven't bothered with Vae Victis as it's gone downhill a bit over the last couple of years and seems to have less of interest for me. On the other hand, I have picked up a copy of the latest Hor Serie Wing Masters (no18) which features the second part of a focus on the Korean War.

I have the first in the series, which covers the early phase of the war in Korea, whilst the latest edition covers the second part from 1951-53, covering various jet aircraft and helicopters.

Even if you're not a modeller it's worth getting hold of these magazines as they have numerous colour profiles and black and white photographs, as well as some excellent background historical information, assuming you read French (which I can just about manage, with a little guesswork).

This reminds me that I really should start painting up thre Wings at War Tumbling Dice 1/600th scale aircraft that I cleaned up while on holiday here in Brittany a few months ago!
