Even after the paint dries, there is still one important decision left to the modeler: how to display the finished work? In this new instructional guide, expert modeler Richard Windrow covers all the common and many less common display techniques including dioramas, simple display cases, mirror stands, domes for individual figures, deep 'picture frame' boxes, and even light boxes. This is backed by a survey of the various reference books, materials, tools and paints that can help enhance a model display. In a book crammed with pictures of beautiful models on display, from World War II tanks to modern-day rally cars, Richard Windrow instructs novice and expert modelers alike on how to take a simple model and display it as a work of art.
