Airframe Workbench Guide No 1-Aircraft Modelling-A Detailed Guide to Building & Finishing 1/72 Scale Aircraft by Libor Jekl.
Valiant Wings Publishing are delighted to announced the launch of a new range of practical publications for active scale modellers-Airframe Workbench Guides. This new series will help expand modellers’ skills bases as they tackle new projects.
The first in this series will cover building and finishing 1/72 scale model aircraft. Author is Libor Jekl, a modeller right at the top of his game but with the ability to share his techniques and demystify the more complex processes of advanced model construction. Step by step images will take the modeller through each process and explain in simple stages how to tackle modelling tasks that often baffle the most experienced of us.
A NEW FORMAT
Airframe Workbench Guides are designed to be used at a modelling workstation. Produced in a landscape format in full colour throughout, each guide will be wire bound with text pages protected by laminated covers so that it can be used again and again.
Within 120 pages Libor will cover the following topics:
Building a resin kit
Creating rivet detail
Camouflage paint weathering
Fabric, wood and stripes
Natural metal finish
Kwik building-organise your builds
