For all you aircraft modellers and those who are thinking of getting into aircraft, and are looking for "how to" articles, look no further. This is the book for you.

Even though its title is "Advanced", all would benefit from the information with in its pages.

The book comes in A4 softback, with 178 pages of well written content and many color photos of beautifully built aircraft kits, color profile drawings and also color and black and white historical photos.

Each chapter covers a different aircraft subject and there are a total of 14 kits detailed inside.The layout includes kit choice, construction, detailing, painting, weathering, decaling, and a bit of history of the actual aircraft being built. All is very well written and easy to understand.

The only shortcoming for me was that I would have liked to have seen more pictures of the kits during construction, but its only a small thing. As previously mentioned, the text is excellent.

This is an excellent publication, one well worth having in the collection.

Thanks to Periscopio Publications for the sample
