Upcoming Book Reviews

It’s been winter – a bl**dy cold, snowy and miserable one too – and many days have just been to cold for modelling so i started reading a couple books instead and got inspired to expand the reference library. I usually don’t look at others work when I paint and weather my scale models but recently I’ve found a lot of inspiration looking at others work, so even if I don’t copy what I see it gets the...

DSPIAE ST-A Single Blade Nipper 2.0

This is all the hype in the modelling world at the moment – in fact such a hype that these nifty pair of cutters are very hard to get hold of regardless of where you are in the world!

These were also the tools I’ve been using...

First to release a new Panther was Meng with their...

F.A.Q. Dioramas – by Rubén González

If the previous two book reviews were precise and detailed, but limited to a few models, this is the phone catalogue of dioramas! I mean 559 pages of step by step instructions of each vignette and diorama more impressive than the last, and each subtitle focuses on one detail, arranged into different chapters so you can easily find the reference work you want. This book took several hours just to flick through the first time and I had...
