How to Build, Customize & Design Plastic Models.
By Theron L. Gordon.

From snap-together model kits to creative figure and diorama design … from selecting and building standard models to advanced customizing techniques and professional finishing tips, this A to Z handbook covers every aspect of a thoroughly fascinating and fast-growing hobby field. It’s an essential guide for any modeller who wants to learn new techniques or improve his building designing, or display skills.

If you’re just getting started in modelling, you’ll appreciate the detailed advice on selecting your first model kits from the vast numbers available in today’s marketplace (from very simple kits to extremely complex models). You’ll find information on basics like the tools you’ll need, preparing “trees”, cutting parts, removing defects, joining parts, and the importance of following manufacturers – including model cars, trucks, military vehicles, ships, aircraft, and more.
