The aircraft modeling hobby has undergone dramatic changes in the last ten years. New manufacturing technologies and the rise of China have combined to make this a golden age in terms of the variety and availability of models. But these advancements can also make the hobby intimidating for those starting out. In this new masteclass, Brett Green describes the kits, accessories, decals and references that are now available and demonstrates a wide variety of paint types, thinners and application methods in both words and pictures. He also covers painting effects such as mottling, soft-edged camouflage demarcation, masking and weathering. This is the perfect book for the beginner or the seasoned modeller to bring his knowledge and techniques up to date.

Review quote

"The aircraft modeling hobby has undergone dramatic changes in the last ten years. New manufacturing technologies and the rise of China have combined to make this a golden age in terms of the variety and availability of models. But these advancements can also make the hobby intimidating for those starting out... This is the perfect book for the beginner and the seasoned modeler alike." -Flying Models (October 2010) "Although this book is described as a 'guide for the serious modeler,' it goes well beyond that, and should appeal to the 'curious' among you that wonder 'now how ... did he do that !?'  If you fall into that category, you will find this reference publication a 'must include' for your personal library." -Ed Kinney, IPMS/USA (October 2010)
