TANK ART Volume 1 - German Armor
TANKART Volume 1, A Comprehensive Guide to Painting & Weathering WWII German Armor
There are a great many very good "how-to" books in today's world of Scale Modeling, but none has covered the "why's" as well as the "how-to's"… a more rounded, artistic approach… until now. In TANKART, I focus on taking real-life observations of weathering effects, dissect and visualize how they occurred, and problem solve the best technique to replicate them in our world, the world of Scale Modeling. In this first volume, focusing on the popular subject of WWII German Armor, I will dive deep into my thoughts about why I do what I do, and the subtleties that give it life. Combined with my education in design, my never ending passion for learning and teaching, and my love of photography, I have strived to produced a book which focuses on the importance of telling the story of each vehicle; it's travels through urban landscapes, harsh deserts, or down muddy roads; it's battle scars and service life wear and tear. In short, telling the story of the vehicle from the time that it has left the factory, engaged the enemy, moved across the landscape, moved to a different theatre, survived to fight another day, and in some cases, ceased to function. To bring these thought processes to life requires a spectrum of techniques which are covered in great detail; from the Hairspray Technique to Oil Paint Rendering; techniques which can be combined in an endless amount of combinations to tell the story of your model, to make each model as unique as it's real-life counterpart. This book begins a series which will define my modeling and hopefully reach the many hobbyists searching for new ideas and inspiration to forever improve and achieve upon with their own work.
The book is 9x10" format, 228 pages. There are 9 models featured inside, included 3 how-to chapters on techniques that go into great detail to further assist you in learning and achieving success with them.
