Overview
-

The replicating of aircraft especially offers a great variety of subjects, either military or civilian, from World War I, World War II, right up to the modern era, in a number of standard scales, from 1/144 to 1/24. The majority of the mainstream model-making companies offer an incredibly wide variety of every type and category of aircraft so that the modeller is sure to find whatever he, or she wants.

Regardless of scale, the aircraft models presented in this volume are true works of art of exceptional intricacy that have demanded a great deal of effort, artistic skill and, above all, time to complete. However, model-making is a creative hobby and the builders of such excellent models never regret the time and effort they have devoted, as the end result is totally stunning and eye-catching.

In this volume, which has been many months in preparation, Periscopio have gathered representative samples as well as different types of scale aircraft. Here, you will find articles about the building, painting, detailing and weathering of model aircraft by such famous Greek modellers as Megas Tsonos and Nick Kavvathas, both of whom are internationally recognized master aircraft modellers with a long list of international top awards. In addition, there are historical texts, photos, camouflage schemes, profiles and illustrations by Richard Caruana. Much effort has gone into making this volume as interesting as possible for modellers of all ages, ability or, indeed, status.

REVIEWS

With this book, I think we have one of the best examples of the work of expert modellers, with enough inspiration in there to coax even the most enthusiastic newcomer to AMS modelling, right up to the most hardened modeller. A fantastic reference for aircraft subject, technique and style, this book really is one of the best I've seen, and I recommend it highly.
