Model-making Materials and Methods


Model-making Materials and Methods by David Neat

Model-making: Materials and Methods focuses primarily on the wide variety of materials that can be employed to make models; those which have been favoured for a while and those which are relatively new. The book looks at how these materials behave and how to get the best out of them, then illustrates a range of relatively simple methods of building, shaping, modelling, surfacing and painting with them.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.
