Modelling Full Ahead has become bigger. Following the success of the first issue, Knox & Baleares Class we are now proud to present Modelling Full Ahead 2: New Orleans Class. Initially when we laid out Modelling Full Ahead, our goal was to condense the information required to successfully build one class of warship into 80 pages. However, as modelers, we all know that the full scope of our hobby that challenges us includes techniques, new innovative ideas, history and so much more. Be sure not to miss out on these special issues.

If trains and railway modelling are your passion or you just love quality scale modelling you can’t miss this book with the usual AK’s quality display plus Marklin’s input. A handbook that will possibly become a cult book for scale railway modelers in the next years. A new approach for an instructional book and for the way techniques are displayed to beginners and advanced modelers.
The book is structured in three main blocks. The first part contains the different techniques and materials we have at our disposal in order to be able to represent as many different effects as it is necessary.
The second block walks us through a greatly visual and detailed description of the different processes and materials involved in representing these effects on different types of locomotives and wagons. A variety of techniques and work carried out by some of the best European and American modelers.
On the third section we will see how to weather railway buildings and rail station structures and their elements. This goes together with a chapter full of real reference pictures of trains from around the world that will really delight the reader and push many to start with the hobby.
If there is one modeler that has distinguished himself over the last decade due to his amazing dioramas is Aitor Azkue. This book shows off the very best of all of his work. With spectacular dioramas, more than 1800 images, step by step guides, and all of his tricks described in detail, there is no book quite like this. Inside the 292 pages of this book, there are 10 complete dioramas looked at in total detail. Azcue has given his own personal touch to all his art pieces and is a reference and inspirational modeler for many others. In this book explains step by step how he do his mega dioramas.
When we decided to launch the Modelling Full Ahead project, we were aware that in an eighty page publication it was possible to condense the information needed to build a specific warship. But as modelling is evolving nowadays with it’s curiosity, techniques, innovation, history, and certainly everything that pushes us to build a scale model, this cannot only be achieved with a monographic series.
Bearing this in mind and in response to the multitude of suggestions we received, we offer you a parallel to the monographs series. In this special issue we will deal with difficulties that may occur during the building stages, such as working with photo-etch, advanced painting, scratch-building, diorama composition, etc. With this new guide we will not only help you to build your models but also have the possibility to tell its history.
