BASIC MILITARY VEHICLE MODELLING.  COMPENDIUM MODELLING MANUALS VOLUME 3. (AFV), Scutts, Jerry, series editor.
6 Scutts, Jerry, series editor. BASIC MILITARY VEHICLE MODELLING. COMPENDIUM MODELLING MANUALS VOLUME 3. (AFV)
Compendium, London, n.d. 
64 pp, 10 7/16" H, soft cover. ISBN 1902579070 Profusely illustrated in colour. "A large part of the appeal of AFVs in general is the enormous scope for presenting a highly individual interpretation of a military vehicle subject. The way the mod eller chooses to pile the necessary guns, ammunition, ropes, chains, tools, radio aerials and so on onto a tank will remain a singular, highly personal contribution to the modelling hobby. In this series of books we attempt to show you how to g e t t he best out of plastic models of AFVs and offer some tips on construction, customising and finishing. We have not specified any particular brand of paint, adhesive or materials simply because models and accessory ranges change their trade na me s, ar e constantly added to - or, occasionally, are withdrawn from the market altogether. And of course general availability in certain countries varies to a considerable degree so we are leaving it to the modeller, wherever he or she may be lo cat ed t o s earch out the tools of the trade according to local supply." from the Introduction. Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - small dent/scuff and soft creases at bottom corner of front cover. Very Good -
