In summary this is a superb book that is a must for any model maker that has even a passing interest in World War I AFVs. The standard of model making is exceptional and the clear, well thought out, series of photographs enable model makers to follow the procedures needed to make superb replicas. This not just a good book it is a great book and will inspire many. Highly recommended to all interested in the AFVs of the Great War and to all military modellers in general.

It can teach you different useful techniques, which will come in handy when assembling your tank.

If you are looking for a book on WWI armor, this may be just what you have been searching for.

It's really set me off thinking of WWI potential projects, a good gauge of this book's quality.
