Fantasy, Figures, History, Military
This is the ninth edition in the Scale Model Handbook series, dedicated to modelling miniature figures and Figure Modelling 9 covers a variety of themes and historical periods.
Their cover subject – a 54mm mounted figure from Pegaso Models – is featured over 20 pages of this edition where the gifted and very talented artist Ernesto Reyes Stalhuth provides a complete painting guide. The 117 step-by-step photos display every tiny detail, from the construction of the horse and rider, the base and groundwork to the exquisite painting sequences using acrylics, oils and printers inks. Even if you are an experienced modeller or newcomer to the hobby, this article offers much of interest.
Herein, youll find how to paint commercial miniature figures using acrylics, oils or enamels, make groundwork and scenery for presentation. Everything is contributed by well-known miniaturists that we are sure will inspire you and, we hope, keep you occupied for many hours.
In this book they have introduced a fantasy article based on a bust made by Riga Model some time ago, which unfortunately is now unavailable, as the company ceased production and closed down.
Answering a popular demand, they’ve decided to produce the 21st edition in the Figure Modelling series by again featuring only WWI and WWII themes, two of the most popular periods for modellers. In this issue, there are nine different articles – five on WWI and four on WWII written by five well-known artists and offering lots of tips and techniques about modelling miniature figures, busts and vignettes. Each chosen subject is covered in detail and illustrated with step-by-step photos and explanatory texts.
Welcome to the 23nd issue of “Figure Modelling” in Mr Black Publications Scale Model Handbook series. This is actually the 28th book we’ve published so far; with 23 of our titles covering figure modelling, two on modelling dioramas and a further three of our popular specials “Modelling the Second World War”.
Seven articles from seven well-known artists, two of them making their first appearance in our editions are featured in this issue, where you’ll find 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.
2nd edition, updated cover with same content!
Welcome to the first book about modelling dioramas in Mr Black Publications series of Scale Model Handbooks. They promised in their first issue that our publications would eventually cover a greater variety of military modelling themes and now their first special issue dedicated to various types of dioramas has come to fruition!
While gathering material for such a special book they soon realized that it wouldnt be possible to cover everything they wanted to in our standard 52-page format, so a 100-page book became inevitable to provide more coverage and satisfy the requirements of our readers. Different approaches, techniques and step-by-step instructions are covered in more than 400 photographs and associated texts to inspire you, the reader, to make your own creations.
KNIGHTS AND CRUSADERS IN SCALE
THEME COLLECTION VOL.2
This is the second book in our new series of Scale Model Handbook Special Editions “Theme Collection” offering previously published articles from our “Editions Collection” where the content is dedicated to a common theme. This second book is about knights, especially those who participated in the period covering the Nine Crusades in the Holy Land, which is a popular subject for miniature figure modellers. Future titles in this new series will feature carefully chosen articles, grouped together into specific themes.
The books are produced using a high-quality digital printing process giving excellent quality illustrations, using 300g matt laminated velvet paper for the covers, with 150g velvet paper inside and all perfect bound with special glue!
