Excellent book for scale model builders ! Jun 10, 2008
I just received my copy of this book and found it to be excellent. The authors did a fine job covering the building of scale model cars (and motorcycles) in great detail. The book covers a wide variety of topics, including assembly, modification of parts, resin and photo-etch details, decals, detailing for increased realism and the all important finishes. Every topic is well illustrated with close-up color photographs demonstrating the technique. A very useful area to me was examples of what can go wrong with finishes and how to avoid or fix these problems. At the end of the book the authors also showcase some of their completed models and they are things of beauty ! I hope my models will someday look as good as those of the "Two Juans". I would say this book and a copy of "Building and Detailing Scale Model Cars" by Pat Covert will get any beginner off to a great start and will help more experienced modelers improve their craft. Well done !
