PREVIEW

LET’S BUILD THE TAMIYA TOMCAT

In 2018, Spencer Pollard released a detailed modelling guide based around Tamiya’s family of 1/48 Tomcats. Available as a ‘Limited Edition’ title that was offered in small numbers, the book soon sold out and though reprinted a year later, has not been available in print for over 3 years. That is, until now.

 

 

Having been asked repeatedly if this book was going to be reprinted once more, Spencer has taken the decision to do so, thus allowing fans of the Tomcat to once again buy a copy of this popular modelling guide. This book, as with all of his other titles, is only available direct from the author so if you would like to reserve your copy, please click the following link where you will find all the details that you will need about the book, its contents and how to order your copy from Spencer. He has told us that the book will this time only be ‘printed-to-order’, no excess copies being created, so if you want a copy, this is your chance to buy one before he once again closes the sales down to concentrate on other projects. Grab ‘em while you can!
