  1. Some 40 years ago a late friend of mine was regularly receiving the US Scale Modeler monthly. For the teenagers (from behind the iron curtain) we were those days these magazines were like the Holy Grail. Till today I remember the cover pictures of more than 200 issues I have read between 1966 and 1981 (when martial law in Poland cut off the supply of US-edited magazines). A few years ago my friend passed away and his widow simply thrown out all his books and magazines (happily the great model collection he made has been bought by the Polish Aviation Museum and thus saved) and today I'm unable to verify my memory condition... Looking into my notes from the 70s I have found that some PBY was featured in the July 1969 issue of Scale Modeler, but I'm not sure, whether this was THE one I need and whether they were other Catalinas featured in other Scale Modeler issues. So I'm looking for your help First - can anybody of you confirm that a PBY Catalina featured in July 1969 (Vol. 4 Issue 7) Scale Modeler is the camouflaged VP-22 (or VP-101) specimen that fought over NEI in January 1942 ? Second - can anybody of you outline me the contents of the SM issues that are missing in my notes? There are few of them: June 1976 (Vol.11 iss.6), November 1976 (Vol.11 iss.11), December 1976 (Vol.11 iss.12), May 1977 (Vol.12 iss.5), February 1978 (Vol.13 iss.2), March 1979 (Vol.14 iss.3) January 1981 (Vol.16 iss.1). Any help will be warmly appreciated. And the specimen itself looks worth of very ineteresting debate for many of us here. Cheers Michael
