WHENEVER CANFORA Publishing releases a new book, a high-quality product is guaranteed, and its second Truck Modelling raises the bar even further.
Unlike other ‘how-to’ guides, there’s a superb tutorial section that – while intended for truck modellers – would be suitable for any builder. Approximately one third of the 176 pages are set aside for these techniques, which cover all areas and include an overview of trailer kits and a series of reference photos. The eight builds by noted modeller Jan Rosecký highlight how these skills can be applied, with examples of working with photo-etched accessories, scratch-building and weathering. Photography is excellent throughout and each project features a ‘Tech Tip’, such as replicating a rusty exhaust or creating realistic lights – again these could be applied to any genre. A short gallery, with examples by Jiri Hübner and Ladislav Petrik completes the guide and the entire volume is dedicated to Czech modeller Jan Mostek, who sadly passed away in 2016.
Truck Modelling 2 (ISBN: 978-91-984775-7-3) retails for €38 and is available direct from: www.canfora.se
