Covered in this book are an introduction to the majority of tools and materials commonly found in modeling, before moving on to cover clear, concise guides for painting British, American and Canadian forces, along with notes on the uniforms of the Free forces from occupied nations.
The guides cover all the common variations of uniform used during the period, including British and Canadian Battledress, Airborne forces uniforms, and the American M43 uniform, as well as when these uniforms were worn and introduced. Camouflage uniforms are also covered, and are broken down into how to apply the various patterns simply and with easy-to-repeat methods.
Illustrated with hundreds of photos, each stage of the guides has a combination of text description, photograph and list of both paint and brush size used to make the steps as easy to follow as possible.

"With 270 pictures to illustrate the steps suggested for the allied military services described for small scale figure painting it is very easy to follow along with a quite simple process to paint figures." ~IPMS/USA
