Building and Detailing Scale Model Cars is available online from Squadron.com




This is another must have book if you want to learn more about making your car model that little better.

The 128 pages are broken down into 10 chapters, and contains over 300 detailed colour photos.

The chapters go through the basic of model building and tools, through to paint preparation and painting and to obtain a mirror finish through the use of sanding kits and polishes.

The author also goes into super detailing your model through wiring and plumbing, masking, decals and metal foil as well as weathering your model to give it that old faded, rusty look.

An added bonus is the inclusion of some "unique models" which show what can be done from some award winning modellers.

Highly Recommended.
