Overview

Marketplace Product

In the past thirty years the world of model kits has undergone a veritable revolution. New techniques in injection moulding have improved the scale accuracy and surface detail of the humble plastic kit, while many specialist companies now produce top-quality resin models, vastly broadening the range of subjects on the market. However, the really radical change has been the advent of photo-etched brass fret, which allows the finest detail to be reproduced to scale. In ship modelling, this has resulted in a new form of the hobby, mid-way between traditional build-from-the-box simplicity and the time-consuming demands of fabricating everything from scratch. These new materials have prompted innovative techniques, which are comprehensively demonstrated in this new manual. Designed for those wishing to achieve the best results from their ship kits in the 1:700 to 1:350 range of scales, it uses step by step photographs to take the reader through the building of two models, one in plastic and one in resin, from basic construction, fittings and detailing, to painting, finishing and display. AUTHOR: Dr David Griffith builds models in many scales and materials, but has won awards for his 1:350 and 1:700 scale resin warships. He publishes his own newsletter, but this is his first book. SELLING POINTS: Deals with the latest materials and techniques Covers one of the most popular areas of the hobby Step by step illustrations in full colour ILLUSTRATIONS: 200 colour photographs *
