    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.

    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.

    La primera colaboración de MiniArt con AK-Interactive trae como resultado este fantástico libro avalado por la calidad y originalidad de ambas marcas.
    Este libro recorre los modelos a escala de este icónico tanque, y las nuevas maquetas de MiniArt, mostrando 6 extensos e increíbles artículos paso a paso, y numerosas curiosidades de las distintas versiones y evoluciones. Un libro que no puede faltar a un modelista, incluso aunque no sea fan de este tanque.
    Los T-54 y T-55 son una familia de tanques diseñados en la Unión Soviética, descendientes de los blindados usados durante la 2ª GM por esta antigua potencia. El T-55 es un hermano del T-54 que nació a partir de este con una serie de modificaciones importantes y que vio la luz en 1955. Básicamente, en realidad es una mejora del T-54 a la que se decidió cambiar de nombre por alguna razón, pero que conserva tanto del diseño inicial que debería haber sido un T-54 con su coletilla correspondiente a la versión revisada. Una de las mejoras más importantes que ofrecían los T-54/55 respecto a los antiguos carros era la incorporación del cañón de 100mm que introdujeron ya algunas unidades del T-44. El casco está formado por planchas soldadas y la torre es de fundición. Así empieza el mejor libro de modelismo orientado a estos icónicos tanques.

    DIORAMA MODELLING 3

    “The Diorama Art – Between History and Myth” by Vasilis Triantafyllou

     

    Welcome to “Diorama Modelling 3” in Mr Black Publications’ Scale Model Handbook Series, third in a series written by Master Modeller Vasilis Triantafyllou that includes five different creations. “The Diorama Art – Between History and Myth” by Vasilis Triantafyllou is perhaps the most impressive and complete version in our Diorama Modelling series and we are very pleased to have the opportunity to release this edition, featuring five award-winning creations made almost entirely from scratch. Within the 100 pages of this book, the five creations between “History & Myth” are presented in a glamorous and illustrative way that we know will command your attention.

    I met Vasilis for the first time a few years ago and was lucky enough to admire his work, “The Black Pearl Treasure” at the IPMS show in Greece. His creations are truly breath taking and perhaps no recordings or photographs of them would not fully create the emotions that would fill the viewer when discovering them “in the flesh” for the first time, but the reader will have the chance to admire and learn the secrets of a Master of The Diorama Art.

    “The Holy Lake” is the first feature in 54mm scale and has been developed intermittently. Here are presented in detail innovative manufacturing and painting techniques and unique construction materials have been used. The result is impressive as well as the study and work that was done before any construction began. Similar techniques have been followed in the other dioramas and emphasize the diversity of each one.

    “The Caribbean Village” at 54mm is the second theme of the book, presenting several new elements and additions to the creative techniques that were used earlier in the first theme.

    The third theme is “The Castle” in 75mm scale with some stunning elements that carry you back to 17th century Europe.

    “The Black Pearl Treasure” is the fourth, and perhaps one of the most impressive subjects we’ve ever seen in the 75mm scale.

    “The Retreat 1812” is purely a historical Shadow Box diary in which many 54mm figures have been used. The despair and destruction experienced by Napoleon’s soldiers is expressed on their faces and the artist manages to convey strong emotions to the viewer.

    In closing, I must first of all thank the artist and writer of this amazing work, Vasilis Triantafyllou, and his son Dimitris Triantafyllou who edited the photographs… Thanks are also due to Christos Katselos for his excellent English translation and our tireless English proof editor Ken Jones. The promotion and completion of this project would not have been possible without Zacharias Andriopoulos’ help.

    I hope you enjoy our latest addition to the Diorama Modelling Series!

    The Panther Project Vol 1: Drivetrain and Hull

    The technical development, a performance evaluation and a detailed combat history of this seminal German tank of World War II is beyond the scope of this published work. Instead we will concentrate here on a visual feast for the eyes,

    96 pages detailing an incredible work of restoration being carried out on a Panther Ausf. A in the workshops of the Wheatcroft Collection.

    As we have had access to the reconstruction of this tank from the early stages we are in a unique position to be able to photographically record the work that has been carried out and that is still to be completed. We plan that there will be at least three volumes of work that shall record this incredible project. The access that we have had has allowed us to visually record a great deal of this vehicle in a way not normally seen in other modern studies of the Panther that are in either museums or in private collections.

    By being able to photograph virtually the entire vehicle before fitting of all the major components we have been able to document those elements that are not normally visible even in those studies that comprehensively cover interior walkarounds. Over this and the following volumes we will be documenting every element of the vehicle including all major sub-assemblies, both before and after installation. This will hopefully build the most complete study to date of the construction via restoration of this iconic vehicle.

    This volume is primarily concerned with an examination of the interior of the hull, suspension elements, gear train and drive components, completed parts awaiting installation, and some about to undergo restoration. Also included is a reasonably complete history of this vehicle as we know of it to this date.

Planeamos que habrá al menos tres volúmenes de trabajo que registrarán este increíble proyecto. El acceso que hemos tenido nos ha permitido registrar visualmente una gran cantidad de este vehículo de una manera que normalmente no se ve en otros estudios modernos de la Pantera que se encuentran en museos o en colecciones privadas.

    Al poder fotografiar virtualmente todo el vehículo antes de instalar todos los componentes principales, hemos podido documentar aquellos elementos que normalmente no son visibles, incluso en aquellos estudios que cubren exhaustivamente los recorridos interiores. Sobre este y los siguientes volúmenes documentaremos cada elemento del vehículo, incluidos todos los subconjuntos principales, tanto antes como después de la instalación. Con suerte, esto construirá el estudio más completo hasta la fecha de la construcción a través de la restauración de este vehículo icónico.

    Este volumen se refiere principalmente a un examen del interior del casco, elementos de suspensión, tren de engranajes y componentes de transmisión, piezas completas en espera de instalación y algunas a punto de ser restauradas. También se incluye un historial razonablemente completo de este vehículo tal como lo conocemos hasta la fecha.

    AK-Interactive’s 4×2 book  introduces what we believe to be an entirely new concept with modelling publications and a new field for other publications and companies make similar products. In this book, four modelers build a different subject twice! Each specific vehicle is represented by each modeler in either an operational or factory fresh appearance, and again as a destroyed, abandoned, or museum/monument exhibited vehicle. A truly unique approach for the vehicle modeler. With this approach, we can bring you articles on the same model, but with entirely different techniques employed, or used in a different manner. Of course, you will be able to translate these techniques to other eras and different vehicles. 4×2 has more than 130 pages, detailed step-by-step process descriptions and high quality photographs, as it standard with all AK-Interactive publications.

    WWII SPECIAL VOL.4

    This volume is the 35th edition in Mr Black Publications’ “Scale Model Handbook” series, and the fourth in that series entirely dedicated to what took place between 1939-1945, which has since been described in Western histories as “The Second World War”.

    The wartime themes herein are numerous and feature extended articles about models, dioramas, vignettes and figures, especially in 1/35 scale, where we’ve managed to assemble many representative examples from our well-known regular contributors, who’ve been with us from the beginning. We’ve added some articles from newer and very talented modellers that we feel will interest our readers. Our thanks go to everyone for their excellent work and dedication, which helped achieve this project… Our new contributors are Lieven Terryn, Eduardo Fernandez Rodriguez, Fabrizio Marini and Carlos Muñoz de Bustillo. As always, thanks are due to our regular and well-known stalwarts, Selu Casanova, Ernesto Reyes Stalhuth and Toshihiro Sano.

    We must also thank our friends, partners and supporters from the manufacturing fraternity… Pietro Balloni and Luca Marchetti (Pegaso Models), Darren Parker-Mead (Tommy’s War), Stuart Hale (Stormtrooper Miniatures), Alexander Surzhenko (Masterbox Ltd), Alexey Lukanev (Irbis Miniatures), Man Jin Kim (MJ Miniatures), Young B. Song (Young Miniatures), Taesung Harmms (Alpine Miniatures), Daniel Buchtela (Model Scene), DG Artwork (Dae Hyoung Kim), Alex Vallejo (Vallejo Acrylics), Fernando Vallejo (AK-Interactive), Ben Mirson and Alina Rizhko (both from Miniart Models).

    Finally, we extend our thanks to Ken Jones for his valuable help in editing our contributors’ texts, which have to be translated into English from the many different languages within our worldwide contributor base. His knowledge and advice help us lend a unique final touch to all our publications.

    Hopefully you’ll enjoy our new book, but above all, keep modelling!

    Color is one of the most important areas of any artistic discipline, and modeling is one of them. That is why before painting, we need to minimally understand some concepts that will help us to achieve far more spectacular results. This is a theoretical book that will help modelers to lay a foundation and understand the way colors work, while improving their skills when painting a figure or decorating any model. With practical examples about the main colors, we can see how the combinations of tones make the difference between a beginner’s finish, and a professional one.

  • Scale Model Handbook: Figure Modelling 24

    Figure Modelling 24

    You are holding the 24th issue of “Figure Modelling” in Mr Black Publications’ Scale Model Handbook series. This is actually the 32nd book we’ve published so far, with 24 of our titles covering figure modelling; two on modelling dioramas, three are our popular “Modelling the Second World War” specials and a further three in our new “Theme Collection Special Edition Series”.

    This time our Figure Modelling book includes 10 articles from seven well-known artists, who offer lots of tips and techniques about modelling miniature figures, busts, and vignettes from ancient times to the Second World War. Chosen subjects are covered in detail and illustrated with step-by-step photos and explanatory texts.

    Sergey Popovichenko returns with a six-page, step-by-step Evocatus article. He shows in detail the painting of a veteran Roman soldier using AK-Interactive and Vallejo acrylics.

    Ernesto Reyes Stalhuth returns, this time with a Roman Legionary bust of the 1st century AD explaining over six pages his non-metallic painting method for large-scale miniatures.

    The Complete Guide to Truck Modelling book

    For decades, truck modelling has been something of a sub-group, with very little literature to rely on and to call their own. This book remedies that and opens up a new world, hopefully to modellers new to the truck scene, and veterans alike.

    Building truck kits is simply different to other subjects and it needs a special approach in terms of adding missing details and authenticity. Therefore, it is not just about painting and assembly but closely related to real vehicles, their design and function. Paints, tools and airbrush techniques can be found in many books. This work however, is dedicated purely to trucks and their scale replicas, providing all the information one needs.

    The book aims to provide all the information necessary to complete an authentically detailed truck model. It provides five separate building chapters, each focused on different levels of information, starting with rather basic assembly of modern US tractors and slowly increasing with difficulty via a detailed modern European truck to a heavily modified classic European tractor. In addition there are chapters focused on related topics, such as light commercial vehicles and resin conversions. The book ends with a lavish gallery of models, providing a wealth of inspiration.
