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.

We travel to this hot and humid location, and try to revive the atmosphere of those air battles between the small and agile MiGs, and their opponents from the USAF, US Navy, and Marines. Each of the latter service branches is represented by one aircraft, featured within the pages of Aces High Issue Five, along with a pair of their opponents; two agile MiGs, in spectacular camouflage schemes. To complement these builds, we include a new gallery section and step-by-step articles which show you how to build a figure vignette, and also finish an auxiliary vehicle.

When we decided to launch the Modelling Full Ahead project, we were aware that in an eighty page publication it was possible to condense the information needed to build a specific warship. But as modelling is evolving nowadays with it’s curiosity, techniques, innovation, history, and certainly everything that pushes us to build a scale model, this cannot only be achieved with a monographic series.
Bearing this in mind and in response to the multitude of suggestions we received, we offer you a parallel to the monographs series. In this special issue we will deal with difficulties that may occur during the building stages, such as working with photo-etch, advanced painting, scratch-building, diorama composition, etc. With this new guide we will not only help you to build your models but also have the possibility to tell its history.
