Modelling Full Ahead is a new series of books for naval modelers. The aim is to concentrate on a specific ship class in depth. From pictures showing all the angles of the ship, to the model kits you can use and, of course, a detailed step by step on how to transform your model ship in an outstanding artwork. For this first issue Fran Romero, well known naval modelling master, with the collaboration of the italian modeler Luciano Rizzato, will guide us through the difficult, but exciting, way of modelling a Knox/Baleares Class frigate. Follow Fran and Luciano in their journey around the Knox/Baleares Class, from standard kits to 4 outstanding models, with different levels of weathering, and learn in an easy and practical way their master modelling techniques. A book from modelers for modelers, a ‘must’ have to improve your naval modelling skills.
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.
