From the publisher: A collection of articles detailing some of the techniques and methods used in building plastic model airplanes, including several that describe using your personal computer in model-making. Heavily illustrated with color photographs, these techniques are described in detail so an amateur model maker can use them in his hobby with little difficulty.

From using your computer to create color chips for mixing paint, to using a glue for repairing engine blocks to casting small parts and detailing cockpits, this work presents a wide range of topics which the modeler will find interesting and useful.

FSM says: An interesting combination of theory and technique, with some unique methods and materials for all aspects of modeling. Exemplary topics include computer design, how to print your own decals, using DVD cases for work stands, how to make your own paint masks, how to plumb an engine, masking-tape techniques, repairing your Mattel Vac-U-Form, etc. All modelers will find new ideas here.
