Editorial Reviews

"Overall, this is another fine addition to Osprey Publications growing line of Modelling Manuals, and although a specializes manual in itself, I feel that any modeler of any skill level will benefit from it's words and pictures, as the methods, tips, and techniques discussed will definitely help the hobbyist to make his subjects much more detailed and realistic. Definitely a good read, and very much recommended for your bookshelf." -Mark Smith, AeroScale
