    Issue 9 (1986)



    It is all very well expending thousands of words on the wonders of 4mm finescale modelling, but those who do not yet indulge might reasonably ask for the evidence. So here it is, unadulterated by technical data, blow-by-blow constructional descriptions and the philosophical ramblings so beloved of us rivet-counters. Everything in this secgtion of 'Portfolio' is the work of Scalefour Society members. And every picture has been submitted because the modellers involved believe that membership of the society has helped them progress. In MRJ's view, the real case for 'going finescale' rests in these illustrated pages.
