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.
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.
