  2. Welcome everyone to the May digital issue of BRM. There's a wealth of additional content available to digital viewers. It's a good opportunity to remind readers who haven't converted to a WOR+ membership of its benefits.

    WOR+ members are treated to bonus video content too – expect the unexpected – anything from a workshop tour of a well-known modeller, to how a model is laser-scanned.

  5. @SynchHaving reviewed the above, the page in question shouldn't have a video on it. However, a number of videos on our channel had been set to private which I've corrected. The video which accompanies this download (located on the third page) now works when played on the PC here. Please send me a PM if the problem persists.

    Hope this helps,
