How it works


Original illustrated black boards with dustcover, protected by loose mylar cover.

This superb encyclopedia, written by a team of internationally known modellers and military historians, embraces all aspects of military modelling. It will be enjoyed by modellers of all ages, skills and interests, as it contains something on every aspect of model making: from making model soldiers and soft-skin vehicles to scratch-building tanks and artillery pieces.

The book opens with an introduction which outlines the history of modelling; this is followed by a survey of all most popular periods setting out the major characteristics from the modelling point of view with helpful advice on problems and research.

Next comes chapters on basic modelling and how to put together simple kits(very helpful for beginners); single figure modelling; weapons, equipment and horses; armoured fighting vehicles, equipment and horses; armoured fighting vehicles; artillery; and finally dioramas and display.

The excellent reference work contains more than 240 specially commissioned photographs and is packed with helpful, practical information on how to develop and improve your modelling skills. 192 pages.

Very clean copy.
