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 the M3/M5 Stuart Light Tank
Zaloga, Stephen J.
ISBN: 9781841767635
Osprey Pub Co  2003 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 80 pages, MOD04. The M3 and M5 Stuart were the most significant light tanks of the US Army, as well as many other allied armies, during World War II. They have proved to be popular modelling subjects ever since, largely due to the large number of kits available in many different scales covering a broad selection of the different variants used. The Stuarts were also painted in a wide range of colourful camouflage schemes, reflecting their widespread service, and this adds to their appeal. This title shows a number of different ways to model this popular tank in 1/35 scale, covering construction, painting and weathering the vehicle.   As New

Modelling the De Havilland Mosquito
Sutherland, Roy
ISBN: 9781841767659
Osprey Pub Co  2005 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 80 pages, MOD07. First entering service in 1941 the legendary 'all-wooden' Mosquito was one of the best twin-engined aircraft of its size to see action in World War II. The addition of radar turned the Mosquito into the RAF's premier night fighter, and it achieved great success in the defence of Britain, with some 600 raiders and 600 V1 rockets falling to its guns between 1942 and 1945. The design's superb performance, and ability to escape interception by enemy fighters also made the Mosquito the ideal choice for the RAF's photographic reconnaissance force. This wide range of roles across multiple theatres and air forces are all reflected in the variety of kits built and colour schemes shown throughout this book.   As New

8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 80 pages, MOD10. In the second half of World War II the German Army faced numerically superior armoured forces on the Eastern and Western Fronts. In order to counter this threat, tank destroyer production was increased.

This book showcases six different builds of the Me 262 across the scales from 1/72 to 1/32, across a range of skill levels.

Modelling US Army Tank Destroyers of World War II
Zaloga, Stephen J.
ISBN: 9781841767994
Osprey Pub Co  2004 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 80 pages, MOD13. Tank destroyers were the US Army's response to blitzkrieg, and were based around the concept of mounting a large anti-tank gun on a light, fast moving vehicle. They served in the Mediterranean, Pacific, and North-West Europe theatres, and were also supplied to other Allied armies. These vehicles form an attractive modelling subject; their open turrets provide plenty of opportunity for detail work, as demonstrated here by the author in clear step-by-step instructions. Packed with tips and techniques from a leading modeller and Allied armour expert, this title covers the M10, M18, M36, and M39, and features modelling projects in 1/35th and 1/72nd scale.   As New
