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.
This book shows the original German camouflage of vehicles used by the Deutsche Afrika Korps, with color variants throughout the war. We look at German Army vehicle colours for the African campaign, including the European Dark Gray (RAL 7021) in which they arrived to Libya. This continues through to the initial camouflage colours, Yellow-Brown RAL 8000 with Green-Gray spots RAL 7008 (in 1941), and the Yellow-Brown RAL 8020 and Sand Gray RAL 7027, used from1942. We also include a selection of Italian vehicles, often forgotten, which fought alongside the Germans against the Allies from 1941 to1943. This is supplemented by the addition of allied vehicles serving with the Axis troops, with some curious American halftracks with distinctive German markings. Over 170 profiles cover schemes from the most common camouflage to the most originals and unusuals vehicles used by the DAK and Regio Esercito, including major artillery pieces used in Africa, highlighting above all the powerful 88 mm Flak 18/36/37. Through the 108 pages of thisbook, the modeler will find inspiration for next African modelling projects.

Realism is usually the goal that we as modelers always want to achieve. It becomes challenging as we have to bear in mind the many details we must add, but these small details are key to give our model its realistic appearance. Extreme Reality shows how this realism can be achieved in scale modelling. Follow the talented artists through a journey from a model to real life. Divided in step-by step articles showing you well known techniques to some or specific techniques only used on a specific model. They will show you how a bulldozer can be as extracted from the scrap yard or a bicycle abandoned somewhere in the countryside. Extreme Reality is a book of masterpieces and it is mean for all of us who enjoy and love this great hobby.
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.
This book analyzes original, eye-catching color variants and camouflage patterns introduced by the German Army late 1944 as used during the last year of the war, 1945. Throughout the guides 72 pages the modeler will find inspiration for the next project. The book contains more than 180 color renderings showing the many camouflage patterns used on common vehicles, and oddities used by the German forces. Included the reader will find vehicles such as the Panther, Pz. IV, Tiger I y II, Stugs, Artillery Guns, Halftracks and more. A special section of the book will help us interpret black and white photographs, and also a chapter about “What If” and “Paper Panzers”. We also include a section where we observe taking renderings to finished models.
