Item description for Basic Aviation Modelling (Modelling Manuals) by Jerry Scutts...

This is the first in a new series of highly illustrated books for the model maker. Basic Aviation Modelling is an excellent introduction to the art of making model aeroplanes from kits. High definition pictures take the reader through all the stages of making a variety of kits. The emphasis throughout is to make the tasks understandable in a step-by-step format. Working with readily available kits from Tamiya, Verlinden and Revell, the less experienced modeller is shown the do's and don'ts of modelling techniques with particular emphasis on the common difficulties that the inexperienced modeller might face. This series will build into a library of practical information for the modeller.

Reviews - What do customers think about Basic Aviation Modelling (Modelling Manuals)?

Confused Styene Hell  May 30, 2002
Basic Aviation Modelling by Osprey is quite a handsome, well- bound trade paperback lavishly bedecked with an array of fine color photos. Aside from photos, however, this book possesses little text information and quality information. The first few introductory pages cover the normal buying a model and choosing a scale with which to work with. The next chapter, Step By Step Construction, involves building a 1/72 Roland c. II biplane. Now, keep in mind that I was under the impression from the title, that is was to be a manual for a beginner to learn the ropes of aircraft model construction. However, I was alarmed that by the fourth page dealing with building this aircraft, the author (or authors, as may be) reveals that the Roland had curtains in its fuselage windows and that this model lacks certain engine detail which they show you how to build! Uhm, I say, what happened to Basic? I just want to know what are the differences in white and green putty and how I can apply it without creating a mess on my plane not worrying about making exhaust pipes, cylinders and so forth from brass! The book proceeds to how to build and/or paint five other aircraft in no logical fashion and with only a blerb or two on basic techniques such as canopy masking. The author seems to presume that the reader is aware of all the techniques and products he refers to with explanations scant and it voiced in a manner that leaves one confused and muttering, "What is he talking about?" For beginners this book is nigh useless. I learned more about modeling basics (basic, that is the keyword here) from Kalmbach Books Building Plastic Models and a couple issues of Fine Scale Modeler than I did from this book. Its only saving grace is that an advanced modeler may benefit from some so the tricks shown, such as painting an aircraft with inks. Basic, Hrumph!
No help at all.  May 13, 2000
This book provides no help for beginners. The author often refers to expensive tools most people do not have. Horrible...
