  • 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.

  • 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.

    Red Machines 2: SU-100 Self-Propelled Gun book

    The Red Machines Series is devoted to the hardware of the Red Army. Each book offers in-depth information, much of it new to the west, as well as a large number of photos, of which most are unpublished. Each book includes blueprints, drawings, colour profiles and data tables, to describe the development and production variants of each vehicle.

    The SU-100 was the Red Army’s most powerful medium tank destroyer of World War 2 and was developed for anti-tank fire support to the T-34-85 in the same way as the SU-85 had complemented the original T-34. As with the SU-85 before it, the SU-100 was delayed in entering service.

    Although introduced late in the war, the SU-100 was heavily engaged in the final push into the Axis countries, with major combat engagements in Austria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and in the assault on Berlin. The SU-100 proved a particularly potent “Zveroboi” or “animal hunter” in that it could easily dispatch Tiger, King Tiger and Panther tanks at medium range. The vehicle had no secondary armament, however, and proved vulnerable when engaged in close fighting without infantry support as occurred during some of these late war battles.

    Post-war, the SU-100 remained in Soviet Army service for many years, being subject to several capital repair upgrades over the decades. The SU-100 was also exported in large numbers, particularly to the Middle East, and was produced under licence in Czechoslovakia as the SD-100.

    About the Authors

    James Kinnear was born in the UK in 1959. James has researched Russian military hardware following his first visit to the Soviet Union in 1973. Since then he has written hundreds of articles on Soviet and Russian military technology. A Russian speaker, he has studied the subject from within the military-intelligence community and as a civilian author.

    Nikolai Polikarpov is the chief editor of “M-Hobby”, the first and only Russian monthly magazine for military modellers, which has been in publication since 1993. The founding of the magazine was a natural extension of his hobby of building scale models. The desire to build models which were an exact replica of the original full-scale prototypes naturally led to the study of the development and operational history of military vehicles during World War Two, including archive research and the measurement of preserved museums examples. This led to the publication of numerous reference articles in “M-Hobby”, and also a series of Russian books and monographs regarding the history of Soviet combat and transport vehicles. The publishing of books and articles led to membership of the Union of Journalists of Russia and ongoing work in popularizing military history in various publications.

    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!

    As part of an elite special operations unit at the fighting edge of the Global War on Terrorism, Nicholas Moore spent over a decade with the US Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment on the battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq. In this compelling biography, a detailed narrative of gruelling life on the ground combines with accounts of some of the most dramatic search and rescue operations of the period to tell the true story of life on the line in the War on Terror.
    Charting his rise from private to senior non-commissioned officer, this title follows Moore as he embarks on a series of dangerous deployments, engaging in brutal street combat and traversing inhospitable terrain in pursuit of Taliban fighters and Iraq’s Most Wanted. Including never-before-published first-hand accounts of high-profile special operations missions including the tense rescue of Private First Class Jessica Lynch and the search and rescue mission for US Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell, Moore recounts, in vivid detail, the realities of life on the front line.

    In August 1940, the Luftwaffe began an operation to destroy or neutralize RAF Fighter Command, and enable Hitler to invade Britain that autumn. It was a new type of air warfare: the first ever offensive counter-air campaign against an integrated air defence system. Powerful, combat-proven and previously all-conquering, the German air force had the means to win the Battle of Britain. Yet it did not.

    This book is an original, rigorous campaign study of the Luftwaffe’s Operation Adlerangriff, researched in Germany’s World War II archives and using the most accurate data available. Doug Dildy explains the capabilities of both sides, sets the campaign in context, and argues persuasively that it was the Luftwaffe’s own mistakes and failures that led to its defeat, and kept alive the Allies’ chance to ultimately defeat Nazi Germany.

    En agosto de 1940, la Luftwaffe comenzó una operación para destruir o neutralizar el Comando de combate de la RAF y permitir a Hitler invadir Gran Bretaña ese otoño. Era un nuevo tipo de guerra aérea: la primera campaña de contraataque ofensiva contra un sistema integrado de defensa aérea. Poderosa, probada en combate y previamente vencedora, la fuerza aérea alemana tenía los medios para ganar la Batalla de Gran Bretaña. Sin embargo, no fue así.

    Este libro es un estudio de campaña original y riguroso de la Operación Adlerangriff de la Luftwaffe, investigado en los archivos alemanes de la Segunda Guerra Mundial y utilizando los datos más precisos disponibles. Doug Dildy explica las capacidades de ambas partes, establece la campaña en contexto y argumenta persuasivamente que fueron los propios errores y fracasos de la Luftwaffe los que llevaron a su derrota, y mantuvo viva la oportunidad de los Aliados de derrotar finalmente a la Alemania nazi.

    Bill Reed had it all ­- brains, looks, athleticism, courage and a talent for leadership. After a challenging childhood in Depression-era Iowa, Reed joined the US Army Air Corps, but the outbreak of World War II saw him give up his commission. Instead, he travelled to China to fly for the American Volunteer Group – the legendary Flying Tigers. After a brief return to America, he resumed the fight as a senior pilot and later squadron commander in the Chinese-American Composite Wing. Soon afterwards, Reed tragically lost his life in a desperate parachute jump late in the war, by which point he was a fighter ace with nine confirmed aerial victories. His obituary was front-page news throughout the state of Iowa.

    This book is a biography of his extraordinary life, focusing on his time spent flying with some of the famous aerial groups of World War II. It draws heavily on Reed’s own words, along with the author’s deep knowledge of the China air war and years of research into Reed’s life, to tell his compelling story.

    Bill Reed lo tenía todo: cerebro, apariencia, atletismo, coraje y talento para el liderazgo. Después de una infancia desafiante en la era de la Depresión de Iowa, Reed se unió al Cuerpo Aéreo del Ejército de los EE. UU., Pero el estallido de la Segunda Guerra Mundial lo vio renunciar a su comisión. En cambio, viajó a China para volar para el Grupo de Voluntarios Americanos: los legendarios Tigres Voladores. Después de un breve regreso a América, reanudó la lucha como piloto principal y luego comandante de escuadrón en el ala compuesta chino-estadounidense. Poco después, Reed perdió trágicamente su vida en un desesperado salto en paracaídas al final de la guerra, momento en el que era un as de combate con nueve victorias aéreas confirmadas. Su obituario fue noticia de primera plana en todo el estado de Iowa.

    Este libro es una biografía de su vida extraordinaria, centrada en el tiempo que pasó volando con algunos de los famosos grupos aéreos de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Se basa en gran medida en las propias palabras de Reed, junto con el profundo conocimiento del autor sobre la guerra aérea de China y los años de investigación sobre la vida de Reed, para contar su convincente historia.

    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.

    The Panther Project Vol 1: transmisión y casco

    El desarrollo técnico, una evaluación de rendimiento y una historia de combate detallada de este tanque alemán seminal de la Segunda Guerra Mundial está más allá del alcance de este trabajo publicado. En cambio, nos concentraremos aquí en una fiesta visual para los ojos,

    96 páginas que detallan un increíble trabajo de restauración que se está llevando a cabo en un Panther Ausf. A en los talleres de la Colección Wheatcroft.

    Como hemos tenido acceso a la reconstrucción de este tanque desde las primeras etapas, estamos en una posición única para poder registrar fotográficamente el trabajo que se ha llevado a cabo y que aún no se ha completado. 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.

    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!
