Indeed, all the materials recommended in the book are either recycled or can be obtained quite cheaply.

Topics covered include:

  • The materials and equipment required to build models
  • Modelling methods and construction techniques
  • Painting, weathering and finishing
  • Creating a sympathetic setting for your models
  • Improving kits and 'off-the-shelf' models
