1-200130 Green, Bret MODELLING LUFTWAFFE JETS AND WONDER WEAPONS: Modelling Masterclass While the Allies largely relied on mass production to help them win World War II, Germany put a great deal of their limited resources into new technologies and wonder weapons. In addition to these tangible assets, which were used with varying degrees of success, the drawing boards of Germany were littered with dozens of advanced designs that never reached the prototype or production stages.

Many of these operational and paper projects advanced the pace and influenced the direction of aircraft development in the decades following World War II, with many of the German engineers responsible for these innovations seamlessly continuing their roles in the United States and the USSR. Modellers have had a long fascination for the Luftwaffe's jet arsenal and secret weapons of fact and fiction and this new Osprey Masterclass will explore the Luftwaffe jets and rocket planes that saw service at the end of World War II. 1 vol, 192 pgs 2012 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-192910 Green, Brett Aircraft Modelling Masterclass The aircraft modeling hobby has undergone dramatic changes in the last ten years. New manufacturing technologies and the rise of China have combined to make this a golden age in terms of the variety and availability of models. But these advancements can also make the hobby intimidating for those starting out.

In this new masterclass, Brett Green describes the kits, accessories, decals and references that are now available and demonstrates a wide variety of paint types, thinners and application methods in both words and pictures. He also covers painting effects such as mottling, soft-edged camouflage demarcation, masking and weathering. This is the perfect book for the beginner or the seasoned modeler to bring his knowledge and techniques up to date.

This second book in the TankCraft series uses wartime photos and extensively researched, exquisitely presented color illustrations to cover the Sherman tanks used by the units of the Royal Armoured Corps and the Royal Marines during the fighting in northern France.

As with all the books in the TankCraft series, a large part of this work showcases available model kits and aftermarket products, complemented by a gallery of beautifully constructed and painted models in various scales. Technical details as well as modifications introduced during production and in the field are also explained as is the complex system of markings employed by British armored regiments.

This book will give the modeler all the information and knowledge required to recreate an authentic miniature representation of the tanks that fought from the beaches of Normandy, through the battles for Caen and on to killing fields of Falaise. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2017 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-195250 Reed, Philip WATERLINE WARSHIPS: An Illustrated Masterclass Philip Reed, best known for his superb models of ships from the age of sail, here turns his attention to the other highly popular subject for ship modelers -- the warships of WWII -- with more than 200 color photos and ship plans.

The book is a step-by-step manual for building a scratch waterline model of the Ca Class destroyer HMS Caesar, the sistership of Cavalier now on display in drydock at Chatham Historical Dockyard. These emergency-built ships were launched between 1943 and 1945. The Caesar saw action in 1944 on the Russian convoys and then in defense of the Western Approaches.

The model presented in the book is built to the scale of 16ft to the inch and is designed to be displayed as a waterline model in a diorama. Every aspect is covered from the construction of a bread and butter hull through to the the details of camouflage, bridge, funnel, mast, the 4.5in, Hazemeyer and Oerlikon guns, boats, davits, depth charge gear, torpedo tubes, searchlights, vents and lockers, and the sea itself.

Ship's plans and a picture gallery at the end of the book devoted to a whole array of the author's WWII model warships complete the book. More than 50 years of modeling experience is passed on through wise and practical advice and thus each page will be of the utmost value to scratch builders and to any kit builders who may be setting out to construct a model of a WWII warship. 1 vol, 128 pgs 2011 UK, SEAFORTH PUBLISHING
