Model Builders’ Manual: A practical introduction to building plastic model construction kits
This manual takes the reader through how modern model kits are designed and manufactured, how the scale is decided upon (most modern kits are made to established scales so that models and accessories are compatible with one another), as well as providing advice on model-building tools and techniques. The down-to-earth text, complemented by numerous photographs, provides details of the ideal `workshop’ set-up for building models; tools and adhesives required; paint types and application techniques – from brushing to using aerosol cans, airbrushing and paint booths; the wide variety of decals available, and how to make your own; basic building techniques, and how to construct dioramas to put models into an appropriate `setting’.
A comprehensive introduction for those new to model-making, along with expert advice for those already experienced in making models who wish to hone their skills.
