Scale Military Vehicle Conversions
|INSIDE:||320 colour photographs|
Duncan Howarth has been modelling military vehicles for years. But he started to find the range of models offered by the kit manufacturers restricting; there were so many unusual and interesting prototypes that he wanted to model, but couldn't. So he began to use ordinary kits as the bases of increasingly adventurous conversions. With the help of drawings and photographs, parts are made to create new variants of existing models and, sometimes, almost completely new models, using just a few components from a donor kit.
This book guides the reader through a series of increasingly complex conversions based on readily available kits of World War Two types, and culminates in a magnificent model of the Vomag self-propelled gun built entirely from scratch. Each build is accompanied by drawings, prototype photographs and photocopyable templates which will allow you to build the conversion yourself. The book also gives you the know-how to undertake new and different conversions of your own.
