Review quote

"This book is a wealth of knowledge in a small package. It really is a one-stop shop for a beginning armor modeler. I highly recommend this to any beginner or intermediate modeler trying to improve his knowledge and skills of armor models. I really enjoyed the whole book. The authors had a lot of information to convey and I think they did a great job of doing it. For the money, this book is a real value for the average modeler. So if you are an airplane builder looking to branch out or an armor guy trying to improve your skills, this book is your answer." --Floyd S Werner, IPMS/USA (March 2009)"Collections strong in modeling will welcome G.
