I have to confess, I really don't like this month's cover picture!

That's the result of the swinging '60s being replaced by the slutty '70s!

Oct 1972 RCM doesn't do justice to the blonde cover girl - she was famous and is still alive. She was Gunilla Knuttson (with several variants in the name) and was Miss Sweden 1961 and semi-finalist of Miss Universe of the same year. She emigrated to the USA and became famous for the Noxzema shaving-soap TV spot that was considered very sexy in that period (www.youtube.com/watch). Don Dewey paid particular attention to match the colour of the dress or swimsuit of the models (girls) with the depicted models (airplanes). In that period RCM was considered the modeller's Playboy magazine, and modeller's wives were always suspicious about the contents of this magazine. Most of the cover girls are still around and with the advent of social networks it's not difficult to find them, this is another aspect of aeromodelling research ... But I agree, surely it's not one of the best RCM covers.
