Reviews - What do customers think about Intermediate Military Vehicle Modelling (Modelling Manuals)?
A little disapointing Jan 4, 2002
I was a rather disapointed with the information given about how to paint these vehicles. Sure, it tells you all about how to add super-detailing elements that no one will notice, and how to convert kits, but the actual text about paitning techniques is nonexistant. If you're looking to learn paitning techniques, be prepared to look at lots of pictures and make lots of observations without any written aid. The title seemed to me to be a little decieving.
For the military vehicle modeler Jun 1, 2000
Finally a modeling book directed at those who have advanced beyond simple kit assembly. This book is directed at the assembly/building of your models. Painting and diorama are just briefly covered. An over abundance of color photos guide the modeler through beginner use of Photo Etched Brass detailing kits. Also introduces the modeler to resin kits and resin detail kits. The largest fault I find with this book is the overuse of detail kits (Photo Etched and Resin) vs scratch built detail. Personally I have problem spending more for a detail kit than what I paid the original model (yes I am a fugal model shopper). But never fear; the chapter on detailing the Kettenkrad is pure scratch built using plastic, wire, putty, and thin metal. Two more Chapters conversions show both techniques in detail together. Over all I am happy with my purchase and will be using this book as I work on my models. I recommend this book for any modeler looking to take their military vehicles beyond the simple assembly, painting, and display level.
