4.0 out of 5 stars Everything you has to know for a good result. 28 Dec 2003
This book take's you step by step from Injection moulding to Vac-formed, resin and multi-media kits. There is even a chapter dedicated to safety concerns which is very important to the real hobbyist. Every aspect from the hobby is highlighted, from starting to finishing models and even the research is not forgotten. Also the basic technics, and besides that it's not only fighters or bombers discribed but also conventional Airliners. There are many chapters concerning the finishing touch of the models.
