There are many "how-to" books in today's world of scale modeling, but none has covered the "why", as well as, the "how-to" processes… the modeler's artistic approach, until now. In TANKART, a painting and weathering guide book series, the focus is on taking real-life observations of paint and weathering effects and incorporating the best techniques to replicate them. Within this first volume, WWII German Armor, I will go deeper into my thoughts about the why of certain steps as it relates to German camo schemes. Combined with my education in design, my passion for learning & teaching, and some clear informative photography, we have strived to produced a book which focuses on the importance of telling the story of each vehicle. To bring these ideas to life requires a spectrum of processes and techniques which are covered in great detail; including the Hairspray Technique and my new Oil Paint Rendering -- techniques that can be combined in an layered array to tell the story of each model.
The book is 8.5w" x 9.5l" format, 208 pages. There are 5 models featured inside, 2 dedicated technique chapters, plus a special bonus figure modeling chapter by world renowned modeler Marijn van Gils.
