books

Reference books are vital for ensuring accuracy in modelling, regardless of genre. While there are myriad hard and softback works out there, showing the real subjects, many also incorporate actual modelling focus. Books are highly useful in terms of how a particular machine looks in terms of finish, as well as finer structural details.
