Whether you are just entering the hobby or reacquainting yourself with it, this book provides simple step-by-step advice on how to get started on a build – regardless of whether it is a ship, tank, aircraft or spaceship – along with guidance on tools and equipment. The wealth of handy tips on basic modeling techniques includes eliminating seams, painting and applying decals. This useful guide also covers more advanced methods, such as scratch-building and repairing/replacing parts, along with helpful hints on finding and using reference material, plus it dispels a few modeling myths along the way. Released initially as a 12-part series in Airfix Model World magazine, this is the first time these Back to Basics articles have been drawn together into a single volume, for every modeler's convenience.
