Books -"Modelling"- Braille Scale Modelling

Posted by armpcm on 20 Jan 2015, 12:39

Good morning mates,

Here is a little review on a modelling book well its 1/72 so little it is. :lol:

The Swedish author Sven-Åke Grufstedt made this book with some of his works and techniques, (after the assembly of the model), so we can read/learn techniques like preshading, hairspray, salt, etc., also we can learn about building dioramas, painting/conversion of figures.

The book as 90 pages and its available only in eBook PDF, you can buy it through the website http://www.lulu.com and here is the direct link to the book http://www.lulu.com/shop/search.ep?keyW ... ling&type=

Here are some points that made me buy it:

1º Price 2,5$ a very low value thanks Sven
2º Excellent graphic layout
3º Possibility of printing it without any loss of quality, I have it since 2012 and still have not done it :mrgreen:

And without further delay a sneak preview.
