The latest issue of Over the Front arrived the other day (Vol 19 No 1).  Nice issue overall, although it's pretty British-centric. ;-)  Three parts that really stood out for me include esteemed members Bob P and Mark M both have artwork in this issue (Mark has the cover); second, there is a great piece on the LFG Roland D.III (and, no, *not* the Pfalz D.III as built by Roland) with artwork by someone other than Bob and Mark (sorry, can't remember whom, although it may be Juanita Franzi); and finally, in the editorial is an excellent display of how information is sent back and forth amongst OtF members to try and figure out a photograph.  What's neat about this last piece isn't just how it shows how this process happens - and how people think - but that it also includes text from Tomasz, as the dialog is trying to figure out who a pilot is in front of a SPAD VII.  Neat!
