Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Adding a figure to a kit or display can increase both depth and interest, yet building and painting figures continues to be a source of frustration to many armour modelers. This book provides full details on how to build and integrate realistic Heer Panzer crew figures with their vehicles, and on how to paint the key uniform variants and patterns worn by these distinctive troops.

It begins with a brief discussion of the various mediums (plastic, resin and white metal), and a round up of the tools, materials and aftermarket items suitable for building and super-detailing figures. Using differing theatres and periods of the war, it shows how to paint common clothing types and patterns, such as the black panzer uniform, Splittermuster, feldgrau, and fatigues, as well as unique and fascinating variants such as Russian camouflage fabric and the motorcycle rubber coat.

Special effects, such as dust-covering, and the addition of equipment and and other details are also covered in clear, step-by-step tutorials. The book will also challenge and inspire the more experienced crew figure modeler, with clearly explained 'kit-bashing' and scratch-building demonstrations, making this a treatment of the subject with wide appeal.
