Seller ID   16175

126 pp, 4to (11" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0702810185 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs and drawings (showing techniques), and color plates. "Almost anything can now be made in miniature. Cars, aircraft and tanks, even models to make complete villages can be found in model-maker's stores. Today, the majority of models are made in plastic and they are mass-produced in their thousands. However, there is a world of difference between a standard model thrown together by the average amateur and that assembled by the expert using tricks and techniques to make his model unique. In this comprehensive guide, master model-maker Daniel Puiboube shows how to create exceptional models from basic kits. He explains how to choose the best models from the many available, how to improve and modify them. In simple terms he gives guidance on assembly, finishing and display. His guide will serve as a useful reference to which the model-maker will refer repeatedly." Light bump to top of spine with light migration into first few pages, slight bump at bottom of spine, minor bump to corners of boards, light irregular rub/mark on rear board. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has very light edge wear, moderate edge wrinkling, light rubbing, minor browning on spine, faint writing and line indentations on front panel. VG-/G+
