This book is a collection of several buildings aircraft, specifically articles 10 with properly completed models. And at proper scale - 1:32.

 

 

The whole structure between the various items is identical in approach to the subject, but with different modellers with distinctive styles.

On first reading, is the clear sense that the text is fluid, easy to read with some very good modelling information

This book is not a FAQ or a pure SBS as full-page close-ups are combined with step-by-step but an informative and mojo up to the modeler. The works are inspirational and can effective have a positive effect in modeler motivation.

All models are inspiring, with the precise purpose: to inspire and motivate the modeler.

 

 

The book format is quite unique, in its landscape form, that allows to have big and detail picture of the step-by-step parts and very good picture of all the detail.

All the builds are flawless and simply amazing.
