Summary

Summary

This is the first in a new series of highly illustrated books for the model maker. Basic Aviation Modelling is an excellent introduction to the art of making model aeroplanes from kits. High definition pictures take the reader through all the stages of making a variety of kits. The emphasis throughout is to make the tasks understandable in a step-by-step format. Working with readily available kits from Tamiya, Verlinden and Revell, the less experienced modeller is shown the do's and don'ts of modelling techniques with particular emphasis on the common difficulties that the inexperienced modeller might face. This series will build into a library of practical information for the modeller.


Author Notes

Jerry Scutts has worked in the field of aviation publishing since the late 1960s, writing over 40 books that have covered a broad spectrum of subject matter ranging from US Navy floatplane fighters in World War 2 to the exploits of the USAF's Phantom IIs over Vietnam. His specialist areas are the Luftwaffe and the US Army Air Forces in World War 2, and he originally appeared on the Osprey list as long ago as 1977, when he wrote the second volume in the now much sought after Air Cam Air War series -many of the jacket illustrations in this series were also painted by him. Jerry has been a regular contributor to Osprey's Aircraft of the Aces series since its inception in 1994.
