Scale Military Vehicle Conversions
Howarth, Duncan
ISBN: 9781861268884
Crowood Press  2007 
 Soft Cover New book, 174 pages. Duncan Howarth has been modelling military vehicles for years. But he started to find the range of models offered by the kit manufacturers restricting: there were so many unusual and interesting prototypes that he wanted to model, but couldn't. So he began to use ordinary kits as the basis of increasingly adventurous conversions. With the help of drawings and photographs, parts are made to create new variants of existing models and, sometimes, almost completely new models, using just a few components from a donor kit. This book guides the reader through a series of increasingly complex conversions based on readily available kits for World War Two types, and culminates in a magnificent model of the Vomag self-propelled gun built entirely from scratch. Each build is accompanied by drawings, prototype photographs and phtocopyable templates that will allow you to build the conversions yourself. The book also gives you the know how to undertake new and different conversions of your own. This book covers: Hetzer Flammpanzer 38(t), Ford F30s ambulance, Jeep T27 rocket launcher, T19 105mm Howitzer, Panther Raketenwerfer, KV3 Obiekt 220, M31 Lee ARVII, Panzer II Schwimm, Sherman Beach Armored Recovery Vehicle, BAD 2 amphibious armoured car, Vomag with 88mm flak.  As New

Japanese Heavy Cruisers: Myoko and Takao Classes
Chesneau, Roger
ISBN: 1861762216
Chatham Publishing  2006 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages. This is the latest in the Shipcraft series, which aims to provide modellers with all they need to know about a famous class of warship and associated model kits. This volume is devoted to the largest and most powerful cruises of their era, the Imperial Japanese Navy's Myoko class and the succeeding Takao class. Superior in armament, armour and speed to any Allied 'Treaty Cruiser', they were actually well over thier publicly declared displacement and even exceeded the official design tonnage. Despite being over-weight, they were sublject to many modifications and additions, and played a major part in almost every major part in almost every major campaign of the Pacific War. With an unparalleled level of visual information - paint schemes, models, line drawings and photographs - this book is simply the best all-round reference for any modelmaker setting out to build one of these famous cruisers.  As New

Ship Modelling Solutions
King, Brian
ISBN: 9781854862471
Special Interest Model Books  2007 
 Soft Cover New book, 175 pages. Brian King has earned an international reputation for the quality of his models built using skills initially learnt during the course of a 5-year craft apprenticeship where he acquired the basic practical skills in both wood and metal work. These allied to a natural talent have been the source of his mostly very complicated models of large battleships. He is particularly interested in warships of the late Victorian era, which he thinks has been largely ignored by ship modellers. He is a great exponent of the art of metal etching about which, with Azien Watkin, he has written two books. This book is a compilation fo articles contributed by Brian to Model Boats magazine over a period of years in which this master modeller has passed on many gems to would-be model shipbuilders. A lifetime of modelling experience is contained within these pages, there are few modellers who will not benefit from the opportunities to read and learn.   As New

Scale Aircraft for Free Flight
Coates, Eric
ISBN: 1854861670
Nexus Special Interest  1998 
 Soft Cover New book, 126 pages. The major difference between free-flight and radio-controlled scale models is that all adjustments to the flight pattern of the former must be made before release or, put it another way, they must be capable of stable flight, both under power and on the glide, without the opportunity of in-flight alterations. This is a challenge most surely met by lightly loaded, slow-flying models based on full-size machines having those characteristics, best typified by early biplanes, and a leading exponent of scale models whith this approach was the late Eric Coates. His series of articles in Aeromodeller magazine in the early 1970s is still regarded as the classic exposition on the subject, as relevant today as when first written. It offers advise on choice of prototype, construction, covering, finishing and detailing, plus trimming and flying, up to competition standard if required. A degree of editing has been necessary to republish the series in this present book form but, other than minor changes where a product is no longer available, nothing basic has been altered and the book will be welcomed by builders of scale flying models the world over.  Very Good

Photo Art for Modellers: Creating Realistic Scenes for Your Aircraft and Train Models
Morath, Peter
ISBN: 9781854862518
Special Interest Model Books  2008 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages. A beautifully produced book in full colour throughout. The author explains and demonstrates how to create photo backgrounds to compliment the display of model aircraft and trains. He describes the methods of preparing and photographing completed models and then combining the digital photographs of backgrounds and models to produce stunning composite photographs, manipulating the images to create exactly the required effect. The techniques described can be use both to create a composite photo background behind a completed model, or to move completely to a photographic image. This may be the answer to many model builders space problems. Building any type of model is in itself an absorbing and rewarding process that appeals to a complete spectrum of individuals. It can become an addictive hobby or a profitable business. The difficulty is in how to display the finished result. Where model making is a business the customer is the one faced with the task of finding suitable space to display the model safely and effectively. For the hobby builder, space soon becomes a major problem. By building models and then turning them into composite photographs, space is only a matter of computer hard drive capacity and the next logical step is to turn the library of images into a film strip to be displayed on a flat screen display as changing pictures on the wall. An interesting book that provides a new approach for modellers and is also a collection of outstanding colour photographs - firetrench.com.  As New

Modelling Fallschirmjager Figures
Forns, Jaume; Romero, Daniel
ISBN: 9781841768960
Osprey Pub Co  2006 
 Soft Cover New book, 80 pages, MOD31. The German Fallschirmjager were elite soldiers, a factor that continues to ensure their popular appeal today, particularly among modellers. There are many Fallschirmjager figures on the market, in plastic, metal and resin, and in all three of the most popular scales - 1/35, 1/32 (54mm), and 1/15 or 1/16 (120mm). Manufacturers currently produce figures related to every major campaign they were involved in. This is the first book to address the subject of German paratroopers for the figure modeller. All the major items of Fallschirmjager uniform and equipment are covered, with an emphasis on specially designed paratrooper items. Camouflage uniforms were prominent among these units, with several patterns employed, and these are particularly attractive to the figure painter. Clear step-by-step instructions allow the reader to recreate these patterns in miniature with confidence and ease. This book will be of interest to all figure modellers, and to AFV modellers too, with the techniques explained easily transferrable to other scales. It covers painting, superdetailing, and conversion techniques (from simple to advanced), and key aspects of scene creation and setting, such as groundwork, balance, and composition, with projects ranging from single-figure studies to full-scale dioramas. Each chapter develops the modelling techniques in a progressive manner, as well as revealing the chronological development of Fallschirmjager uniforms and equipment in sequence. This highly accessible book makes use of commercially available figures, from different firms and in different materials. Jaume and Daniel's superb presentation skills are brought to the fore in this visually detailed, packed and engaging treatment of one of the most enduring figure-modelling subject areas.   As New

Modelling the US Army M4 (76mm) Sherman Medium Tank
Zaloga, Stephen J.
ISBN: 9781846031205
Osprey Pub Co  2007 
 Soft Cover New book, 80 pages, MOD40. The Sherman tank was the principal US and Allied tank of World War II - more Shermans were built than all German tanks combined. Not only were large numbers of Shermans manufactured, but a large number of variants emerged powered by different types of engines and with different types of hulls, turrets and other details, making it an ideal subject for any modeller. Steven J Zaloga takes on the Sherman tank in this book, providing a guide to four variants across a range of different skill levels, depicting differing colour schemes and techniques which are examined and illustrated in lavish full-colour step-by-step photographs. Contents: Introduction; M4A1 (76mm) Sherman, Operation Cobra; 'Sandbagged in Alsace': M4A3E8 (76mm) Sherman; The 'Rhine Rat Race': M4A3E2 assault tank; Big gun, small turret: M4A3 (76mm) and M4A3 (17 pdr) Firefly; Research and reference; Index.  As New

The book then turns to scale modelling with detailed chapters on choosing a subject, a scale, methods of construction (scratch or kit), materials and techniques and the details of fittings and painting.

Admiral Hipper Class Cruisers
Backer, Steve
ISBN: 9781848320628
Seaforth Publishing  2010 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages. The 'ShipCraft' series provides in-depth information about building and modifying model kits of famous warship types. Lavishly illustrated, each book takes the modeller through a brief history of the subject class, highlighting differences between sister-ships and changes in their appearance over their careers. This includes paint schemes and camouflage, featuring colour profiles and highly detailed line drawings and scale plans. The modelling section reviews the strengths and weaknesses of available kits, lists commercial accessory sets for super-detailing of the ships, and provides hints on modifying and improving the basic kit. This is followed by an extensive photographic survey of selected high-quality models in a variety of scales, and the book concludes with a section on research references - books, monographs, large-scale plans and websites. The subject of this volume is the largest and most sophisticated German cruiser class of WW2. The five ships suffered very different fates. Blucher was sunk during the invasion of Norway in 1940, whereas Admiral Hipper fought right through the war. The most famous, Prinz Eugen, escaped when Bismarck was sunk and survived to be expended in a postwar Atomic bomb test. Seydlitz was intended to be converted to an aircraft carrier, but never finished, while Lutzow was sold to Russia and sunk by her erstwhile owners. STEVE BACKER is the editor of steelnavy.com, the best warship modelling site on the web, for which he writes extensively on warship kits and accessories. He is also the author of four previous titles, Japanese Heavy Cruisers, British Battlecruisers, Essex Class Carriers and Bismarck and Tirpitz in this ShipCraft series.  As New

This may be the answer to many model builders space problems. Building any type of model is in itself an absorbing and rewarding process that appeals to a complete spectrum of individuals. It can become an addictive hobby or a profitable business. The difficulty is in how to display the finished result. Where model making is a business the customer is the one faced with the task of finding suitable space to display the model safely and effectively. For the hobby builder, space soon becomes a major problem. By building models and then turning them into composite photographs, space is only a matter of computer hard drive capacity and the next logical step is to turn the library of images into a film strip to be displayed on a flat screen display as changing pictures on the wall. An interesting book that provides a new approach for modellers and is also a collection of outstanding colour photographs - firetrench.com.  As New
