    WWII SPECIAL VOL.5 SUMMARY

    SCULPTING & PAINTING YOUR OWN WWII GERMAN MINIATURE FIGURES IN 1/35 & 1/16 SCALES – CREATING YOUR SCENIC SETTINGS FROM SCRATCH

    THE MINIATURE FIGURE ART OF LUC KLINKERS

    Welcome to the latest WWII Special, Vol.5 in the Scale Model Handbook Series from Mr Black Publications’ Editions. This is our 42st book by the well-known Netherlands’ artist Luc Klinkers who shows “how to” sculpt and paint WWII period miniature figures in German uniforms, placing them in realistic scenic settings, made from scratch and providing the ultimate techniques guide.

    Luc steers you through the miniaturists’ magical world using detailed text with a lot of step-by-step photos so you can easily follow his approach and learn how to sculpt your own WWII German miniature figures in 1/35 and 1/16 scales, displaying them on scratch built scenery.

    Inside are 250 photos, around 200 of them combined into step-by-step sequences. The book is divided into five chapters following a progressively advanced sequence from A to Z on how to sculpt your own miniatures. Luc reveals all his secrets and techniques gathered over his 20 years experience in the military modelling hobby where he’s sculpted more than 200 figures.

    The first chapter is dedicated to tools, materials and other materials needed to sculpt your own miniature figures. The second covers creating a 1/35 scale three-figure vignette totally from scratch. The author uses heads, hands, boots, weapons and accessories from commercially available products combining them to create his personalised realistically posed figures. Luc makes it look easy and encourages you to try his methods.

    The third chapter is about sculpting and painting a German SS Grenadier at the Falaise Pocket 1944 in 1/16 scale, whereas the fourth chapter covers the creation of a 1/16 scale three-figure “action vignette” from scratch. The fifth and the final chapter presents a gallery of masterly sculpted figures that have been created over the past 20 years that were placed onto AFVs, in city or country themes, or just in small display bases.

    So what would you expect from this book? I must admit that I first met Luc on Facebook one day when some photos of his latest work appeared in front of me. I was really impressed! Not only from the results he achieved, but also from the time he took from start to finish. An amazing combination! Yes, he uses commercially available heads, hands, boots, weapons, gear, etc., when they fit into his projects to create shortcuts. However, I think the final results are awesome, considering the time dedicated to sculpting your own 1/35 scale heads, hands, weapons, etc., is very time consuming with underlying uncertainties for the amateur. Also, the larger 1/16 scale needs a lot of attention to detail and abilities usually displayed by professionals.

    Luc explains how to sculpt your own miniature figures using regular tools and materials, combing your creativity and readily available commercial accessories, so each figure will have your own signature upon it. We often hear that with just replacing a figure’s head we can give it a different personality and progress to adding some character to your scenic base.

    Study this book carefully and get out your old figures and spares box that’s been sitting there for years. Start with small alterations and then go further to producing conversions and scratch builds. You will be amazed how good you will feel when you put your own stamp on your sculpted and transformed figures!

    A big thank you must go to this great miniaturist Luc Klinkers for giving us the opportunity to publish his work and share his secrets with us. Special thanks are due to Pietro Balloni, Luca Marchetti, Alex Vallejo, Fernando Vallejo, Taesung Harmms, Young B. Song, Paul Ondeck, Alessandro Balbo, Ronaldo Iezzi, Yannis Papadopoulos and last, but not least, our English Text Editor Ken Jones.

    We hope you enjoy our latest edition!

  • Storming the bombers. A Chronicle of JG 4 Vol. 1 1942-1944

    Sold out

    LUGA JG 4/I

    49,90

    The fourth fighter wing of the Luftwaffe was initially established during 1942 and committed to operations in defence of the Rumanian oil fields during 1943. I./JG 4 first saw action in combat against a strike force of B-24 Liberators dispatched on the celebrated low level attack against Ploesti on 1 August 1943, Operation “Tidal Wave”. JG 4 was subsequently deployed in the bitterly fought German defensive campaign on the Italian peninsula during the first half of 1944, prior to being shifted to the Normandy invasion front and then falling back to the frontiers of the Reich in September that year. It was during the summer of 1944 that JG 4 underwent considerable reinforcement with two new Gruppen swelling its ranks. The most effective of these was II. (Sturm)/JG 4, a so-called “Storm” or « assault » wing, built up around a hard core of former Sturmstaffel 1 pilots and an intake of young daredevil volunteers. Committed against the massive USAF bomber fleets pounding the Reich, these German « kamikaze » fighters, as some saw them, were deployed to bring down the American bombers by any means, including ramming if necessary. The first volume of this two part history covers the unit’s establishment, deployments and combat actions through to Autumn 1944, providing for the first time in English a day-by-day, mission-by-mission study of the Luftwaffe’s 4th fighter wing.

     

    The second volume covers the story of the Geschwader from Operation Market Garden in Holland during September 1944 to the final desperate battles over Berlin and capitulation in May 1945. The combats flown by the pilots of JG 4 throughout this nine month period are related with the aid of rare oral testimony and illustrated with photographs from private albums, including a selection of new images for this English-language edition. Covered in detail are the ‘Storm’ missions flown by the Sturmgruppe (including ramming attacks against USAAF bombers), ground-attack bombing sorties during the Ardennes offensive of December 1944, the fullest account yet of the unit’s participation in the 1945 New Year’s Day Operation Bodenplatte, the last desperate sorties flown on the Oder front against the Red Army with, for the first time, accounts in English of German kamikaze attacks flown against the Oder bridges and the final air battles over the ruins of Berlin.

     

    Over the course of 20 years research the author was able to track down and interview virtually every surviving pilot and compile their very often moving and desperate accounts into this book, giving it a uniquely human dimension which will undoubtedly be of interest to all former Allied aviators and their descendants as well as enthusiasts of the period.

     

    Neil Page has produced the translation and his knowledge of both the French and German languages as well as WWII aviation history has enabled us to present this superb English language edition. The work is illustrated with several hundred photographs and is completed with loss and victory listings, a table of commanding officers and Thierry Dekker’s superb full-colour profile artworks. This is an unmissable 232-page A-4 format hardback, with much new information on WWII air combat over Europe, the pilots and their machines.

  • In the Skies of France. A Chronicle of JG 2

    LUGA JG 2/I

    49,90

    It has taken more than 60 years for this first detailed history of the second fighter wing of the Luftwaffe to appear, a chronicle of Jagdgeschwader 2. Conducting operations principally over France and the Channel, JG 2 was destined to become one of the most celebrated of German fighter units, accorded extensive coverage by the propaganda services of the Reich. Awarded the honour title « Richthofen » as early as 1935, JG 2 spearheaded the campaign in the West and the assault againt England in the Battle of Britain. The unit remained in France when the majority of German fighter units were dispatched eastwards for the invasion of Russia during the spring of 1941. Tasked with defending the airspace of Brittany, Normandy and much of Picardy along the French Channel coastline, JG 2 constituted a bulwark against the incursions of the RAF and USAF. Despite the unit’s heavy losses sustained during WW II, the authors managed to locate around one hundred JG 2 veterans and their personal accounts and photographs bring this history vividly to life and imbue it with a human dimension which many will find moving. This first volume of the history of JG 2 covers the early years of the unit from its origins to the turn of the year 1940/1941.
    Compiling a history of this scope would have been an impossible task were it not for the support of many tens of veterans and their families, amateur historians, enthusiasts and friends. We owe a special debt of gratitude to five former members of JG “Richthofen” who were particularly supportive during the long process of assembling this work and whose encouragement and readiness to assist was unswerving: Julius Meimberg and Erich Rudorffer for kindly agreeing to write their respective forewords, Hennig Strümpell, Wolfgang Falck and Dr Siegfried Bethke. It was with great sadness that we learnt of the deaths of the latter three gentlemen before this work could appear.

     

    A number of French researchers have supported this project with their time, energy and considerable knowledge and experience. We would particularly like to thank Richard Goyat and his co-author Jean-Yves Lorant, as well as Frédéric Quesnel.

  • Scale Model Handbook: How To Guides Vol.1 Techniques for Modelling Female Miniatures

    MRB SMH-HTG01

    The Publisher’s Introduction To “How To Guides” Volume 1

     

    At Mr Black Publications we’ve recently completed the first in a new series of “How to Guides” resulting in this first volume… It’s the 41st Scale Model Handbook we’ve published to date.

    We’re very excited about this new series of books, which will cover the many techniques need to make better models! We’ll cover a lot of the popular subjects in this great hobby of scale modelling, and this first volume by Christos Katselos shows how to paint female miniature figures and busts, revealing all his secrets on how he paints female miniature figures. There are 11 chapters in this book where you’ll find all the necessary information for the preparation, assembly and painting of female figures, using the latest techniques and tools. The book offers nine themes; five in great detail with a lot of step-by-step pictures over eight pages, plus the introduction, preparation and assembly, aimed specifically at newcomers.

    All of the painting was done using acrylic paints from the well-known Spanish company, Vallejo Acrylics. Christos used about 65 different colours – 54 “Model Color”, seven “Panzer Aces”, one “Model Air”, three “Game Color” and one “Metal Color” to add a variety of colours for painting and to lessen any repetition.

    The first 52 pages are devoted to a lot of step-by-step projects with around 195 illustrations enabling the reader to easily understand and follow the sequences. The remainder of the book has another four articles with more photos of finished models with the necessary descriptive texts.

    A big thank you must go to Christos Katselos, a great artist, for giving us the opportunity to publish his work and share his secrets. Special thanks are also due, in no particular order, to Pietro Balloni, Luca Marchetti, Alex Vallejo, Darren Parker-Mead, Man Jin Kim, Alexey Lucanev, Fernando Vallejo, Taesung Harmms, Andrew Cairns, Young B. Song, Dae-Hyeong Kim, Ju Won Jung, Paul Ondeck, Sang-Eon Lee, Yannis Papadopoulos and last, but not least, our English Text Editor Ken Jones.

    From Bessarabia to Belgrade: An Illustrated Study of the Soviet Conquest of Southeast Europe, March-October 1944

    The Red Army reached northeastern Rumania in the last days of March 1944. Stalin had high hopes that the 2nd and 3rd Ukrainian Fronts would be able to quickly conquer the Balkans. But those hopes were not to be fulfilled. Bulgarian researcher Kamen Nevenkin’s From Bessarabia to Belgrade covers the military history of the bloody fights in southeastern Europe from March to October 1944. This is a short study, illustrated with numerous never-before-published wartime photographs.

    Bloody Vienna: The Soviet Offensive Operations in Western Hungary and Austria, March-May 1945 book.

    The Soviet Vienna Operation began on 16 March 1945 when the assault armies of 2nd and 3rd Ukrainian Fronts succeeded in penetrating the Axis defence between Esztergom and Lake Balaton. It ended less than a month later, on 13 April 1945, when all its objectives were achieved, and Vienna was taken.

    The defeat at Vienna inflicted a mortal blow on the Nazi economy – the Third Reich lost its important economic regions in Hungary and Eastern Austria that were still largely untouched by the war.

    Finally, the victory at Vienna allowed Stalin to solidify his presence in Central and Eastern Europe and legitimize his absolute dominance over the region. The Western Allies and the small democratic countries of Western Europe were forced to realize that the Red Army wouldn’t fall back and return to its homeland, but would stay and erect an iron curtain behind which communist regimes would be installed. Thus, the Soviet Empire expanded to the west, and Europe was divided for the next 45 years.

    Penned by a leading Bulgarian researcher, the book provides an expert analysis of this battle. A considerable number of German and Soviet wartime documents were accessed, and this allowed the author to tell the story from the perspective of both sides. It also contains many never-before-published photographs.

How can you use colors, figures, accessories, scenery and bases effectively in your composition? How do you turn a historical photograph into a three dimensional scene? How do you plan a box diorama? This seemingly theoretical subject is treated in the most practical way, making it accessible and useful for every modeler.

    528 illustrations contain over 300 AFV, aircraft, ship, car, SF and figure models and dioramas by Van Gills, one of the world’s best modelers ever.

    Today, Human Rights advances achieved over the past decades have been losing ground at an alarming rate.

    Society around the world is suffering from excessive racism, pandemics, global warming , and many other social injustices of all kinds.

    The Universal Declaration of Human Rights proclaimed by the United Nations in 1948 shortly after the second world war was a major milestone in the history of the world. It was the first time since the beginning of humanity that the world came to together and recognised the inherent dignity and the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human race to a foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.

    Over seventy years later with so much discord in the world we must ask ourselves whether the vision of a free and fair world the founders of the charter imagined are
    any closer to being achieved then they were all those years ago.

    And so it is with a sense of purpose that AK Interactive have launched the most provocative and compelling modelling book ever to be published. A book that we are convinced will stand out as a beacon of hope, pushing the boundaries of artistic expression in the modelling art form.

    Condemnation by AK Interactive elevates modelling into an art form that makes a statement to the world by highlighting the social injustices in the world today and reminds the world of the torrid history of terrible events when humanity got it so wrong.

    In this book you will find very sensitive dioramas, created by some of the most expressive modelling artists in the world today. Intended as a social criticism but created from our deepest respect to the topics discussed. It is the first publication rated for those over 18 years of age due to the sensitivity of its content. The work has been very difficult. The results, can be judged by yourself.

    All of us, the ones who have participated in this book are very proud of having worked on it, the results and the sense of belonging of this unstoppable team of people.

    A part of the incomes of the first edition is destined to help the NGO Etiovida for the reconstruction and development of Ethiopia.

    Son tiempos en los que el ser humano está perdiendo terreno en cuanto a sus propios derechos de refiere. Son tiempos de racismo desmedido, de pandemias, de calentamiento global del planeta y de muchísimas otras injusticias sociales de toda índole.

    Por ello hemos querido poner el grito en el cielo y condenar todo tipo de acción que vulnere los derechos fundamentales del ser humano, recogidos por las Naciones Unidas en su Declaración Universal de los Derechos Humanos en 1948.

    Estamos convencidos de que es un buen momento para reivindicar el modelismo como corriente de expresión artística, y a través de esto, poner en valor nuestras inquietudes y recapacitar sobre los comportamientos del ser humano.

    En este libro encontrarás dioramas muy duros, cargados de crítica social que hemos realizado desde el mayor de los respetos a los temas tratados. Se trata de la primera publicación calificada para mayores de 18 años por la dureza de su contenido. El trabajo ha sido muy difícil. El resultado, júzgalo tu mismo.

    Nowadays the Human Being is losing ground in terms of their own rights. We are suffering from excessive racism, pandemics, global warming of the planet, and many other social injustices of all kinds.

    For this reason, we have wanted to cry out to heaven and condemn all kinds of action that violate the fundamental rights of the Human Being, established by the United Nations in its Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.

    We are convinced that it is a good time to vindicate modeling as an artistic expression, and through this, to value our concerns and reconsider the behaviors of human beings.

    In this book you will find very hard dioramas, loaded with social criticism but created from our deepest respect to the topics discussed. It is the first publication rated for those over 18 years of age due to the harshness of its content. The work has been very difficult. The result, can be judged by yourself.

    All of us, the ones who have participated in this book are very proud of having worked on it, the results and the sense of belonging to this unstoppable team of people.

  • Last Panzer Battles in Hungary: Spring 1945

    PZW9786155583292

    49,95
    ENGLISH

    In the last phase of the Second World War the Sixth Panzer Army was the last army available to the German military leadership which was more or less intact and was capable of launching a major offensive. After it had been withdrawn from the Western front in the aftermath of the failed Ardennes counter offensive, it was replenished with men and gears as fully as was possible in the given circumstances, and as a result it almost regained its 1944 autumn strength. It would not have been a surprise if it had been deployed on German territory against the Allied troops advancing to Rhine, or in Silesia or in the Baltics or even if it had been sent as a reinforcement to the Army Group Vistula to defend the distant approaches to Berlin against the advancing Soviet army – reinforcement and fresh troops capable of launching counter offensives were desperately needed everywhere. But it happened otherwise: the Sixth Army was deployed in Hungary and participated in the Operation Spring Awakening, launched in the western part of the country on 6th of March, 1945. This was the last German “big offensive” in the course of the Second World War.

    En la última fase de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, el Sexto Ejército Panzer fue el último ejército disponible para el liderazgo militar alemán que estaba más o menos intacto y era capaz de lanzar una gran ofensiva. Después de haber sido retirado del frente occidental tras la fallida contraofensiva de las Ardenas, se reponía con hombres y engranajes lo más completamente posible en las circunstancias dadas, y como resultado casi recuperó su fuerza de otoño de 1944. No habría sido una sorpresa si se hubiera desplegado en territorio alemán contra las tropas aliadas que avanzaban hacia el Rin, o en Silesia o en el Báltico, o incluso si se hubiera enviado como refuerzo al Grupo de Ejércitos para defender los frentes distantes de Berlín contra el avance del ejército soviético: se necesitaban desesperadamente refuerzos y nuevas tropas capaces de lanzar contraofensivas en todas partes. Pero sucedió lo contrario: el Sexto Ejército se desplegó en Hungría y participó en la Operación Spring Awakening, lanzada en la parte occidental del país el 6 de marzo de 1945. Esta fue la última “gran ofensiva” alemana en el transcurso de la Segunda Guerra Mundial.
