DESCRIPTION: This book is part of a series that is aimed primarily at model makers and model engineers. The very high quality and drawings provide the detail needed by serious modellers. Available plastic kits are reviewed in detail, together with fine detail extra parts available from specialist suppliers. Using this information, an exhibition quality model can be constructed either from a kit or from a “scratch build”.
Model making has always been a popular hobby and continues to grow in popularity. What is particularly commendable in this series is the range of kits reviewed. Although even the smallest scales can produce exhibition quality models, they are also within the typical price range of the novice modeller who can benefit enormously from reading this book. The larger scales are not only beyond the price reach of many modellers, but they require space and are best presented in a display case. The large models are aspirational because even the youngest novice model maker will be inspired to work towards this degree of scale and achievement.
