ESSENTIAL KIT BUILDING GUIDE

New book now available for pre-ordering



Soon to be published by The Crowood Press, my fourth title 'Kit Building for Railway Modellers, Volume One: Rolling Stock', is due to be published in May. However, it's now available for pre-ordering at Amazon. Jam-packed full of colour images (nearly 600!), the book covers all you need to know about building wagon and carriage kits in any scale and any material. With thorough, step-by-step demonstrations, it starts with the absolute basics (often overlooked by most books and articles) and moves on to provide an essential reference source on subjects including shaping metal, soldering, compensation, scratchbuilding, painting and weathering. There's also plenty of suggestions of how to create realistic wagonloads, detailing carriage interiors and coupling options.

Having taken two years to compile, I'm rather proud of this work and, hopefully, it will help modellers build the confidence to take the plunge into kit building or to go that bit further with super-detailing or conversion projects.
