We have reached the 15th book in the “Scale Model Handbook” series where, since the first book we have presented lots of information, tips and techniques about modelling miniature figures. This time we’ve gathered seven articles from seven well-known artists from around the World.
Four of them are covered in great detail with lots of step-by-step photos, which help the reader to follow different techniques about painting, sculpting, converting and making those unique scenic bases.
We’re pleased to welcome a new contributor to this edition, Stelios Neofytidis, who painted a Private of the 1st Battalion Gordon Highlanders, “Le Cateau” 1914 from Tommy’s War 54mm Figure Series.
So, what others do we have inside! A Michael Wittmann bust (our cover theme, and a bust as cover subject for first time since the series began) painted for box art by “The Master”, Man-Jin Kim. Next is a Captain of The Queen’s Own Cameron Highlander at Tel El Kebir 1882, painted for Victoria’s Heroes box art by Juanma Vergara; A Praetorian Guard 1st Century BC by Louis D’Orio and a Bear Clan Iroquois bust by Sergey Popovichenko.
A special and unique feature is Pietro Balloni’s article “Masterpieces in Masterclass Figure Gallery” with a lot of Pegaso Model’s “box arts” that reveal Pietro’s talents and achievements and, of course, his painting technique! Finally, “The Rhino” is a fantasy themed model by Javier Gonzalez (Arsies) with more than 40 step-by-step photos illustrating Javier’s sculpting and converting technique.
