There are few guides currently available to the F-4 modeller: this book seeks to redress the imbalance, providing an in-depth and step-by-step approach to modelling this plane across a variety of scales, types, and national schemes.   As New

Photo Art for Modellers: Creating Realistic Scenes for Your Aircraft and Train Models
Morath, Peter
ISBN: 9781854862518
Special Interest Model Books  2008 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 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 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 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 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 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
