Overview

The secrets of terrain modelling are revealed by Richard Windrow, one of the world's leading modellers. Everything from castles to the destruction wrought upon modern cities by war is covered in this accessible book. Explore the difficulties of creating a desert landscape, from the sandstone of Arizona to the wastelands of North Africa. Discover the handiwork needed to create the barbed wire death traps of No-Man's Land and the wilderness of Russia in winter. The variety of seasons, environments and historical periods are detailed in over 200 step-by-step photographs answering a modeller's 'how to' questions. Accompanying these photographs is an invaluable guide to the materials and techniques needed to create top-quality terrain, providing the essential reference volume for the military and non-military modeller alike.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This text is a must for the modeling fan, military or non-military, as it provides some unique techniques unlikely to be found elsewhere.” —Timothy Baghurst, The Traveller (November 2007)

“There are few books as truly useful as ones like this. Modelers of every skill level will be able to find things that they can do to help improve the look of their presentations. Thanks to the copious number of quality images that accompany each article, those with the will should be able to follow what was done with ease. It is a book that I can most highly recommend to you.” —Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (August 2007)

“His descriptions of materials and layout tips can be applied to all kinds of model layout, both military and civilian in subject, and pairs close-up color photos with the author's descriptions of how he built each landscape, and the special challenges involved. An intriguing survey, this would be the perfect addition to any collection appealing to hobbyists.” —California Bookwatch (October 2007)

“...an extraordinarily well presented, informative and inspirational book.” —Jim Rae, Aeroscale (August 2007)

Meet the Author

Richard Windrow, born in 1938, has pursued military hobbies, including modelling , since childhood. After service in the 1st Bn. Queen Royal Regiment from 1957 to 1959, he became involved in the recovery of shot-down WWII aircraft for the Kent Battle of Britain Museum, before becoming an amateur rally driver. He has restored and showed a number of wartime US military vehicles, but has now returned to his first love, 1/35-scale military vehicles and the building of dioramas in which to display them.
