Reviews - What do customers think about Advanced Military Vehicle Modelling (Modelling Manuals)?
Military Modelling Jul 10, 2007
I find the Compendium Modelling Manuals very expensive for all but the avid modeler who invests lots of money in their hobby. But it is a better book than what the previous reviewers gave it. It has lots of unique ideas and pictures of the process of building these several models. I just wish that they would lower the costs to a more reasonable price under $10 and sell more to the younger modeller in order to encourage their love of the hobby. For the avid modeller, with money to spend, I recommend this series; for a younger person I would recommend a military modelling magazine for ideas.
Don't want to read it again. Jul 20, 2000
Far from being a good book on this subject at all. I also owned a copy of Tony Greenland's "Panzer Modelling Master" and that one deserves 5+ stars.
The editor should pay more attention on the layout and format of this book. It just failed to keep my attention while reading it. I have no intention to read it again.
There are rooms for Improvement Jul 13, 2000
I have no intention to doubt Jerry Scutts' techniques in making military vehicle models. This is the first book from Jerry that I have read and it is on the down side when compared to Tony Greenland's Panzer Modelling Masterclass.
I have been making military models for 30 years and I have read hundreds of books on this subject around the world. So far, Tony Greenland's book is still the classic on my list. There are also many other good books from Japan, Korea, France . . . .
This book is not well organised, the pictures are of average quality and the layout is sometimes confusing. Not a 'must have' for military vehicle modelling enthusiasts.
