Circuits & Bumps

 

by Mike Grant

128 Pages
ISBN: 978-1-906959-27-2

Mike Grant’s ‘Circuits and Bumps’ series had been the most enthusiastically acclaimed material ever to run in Scale Aviation Modeller International. Combining classic kits with simple but effective techniques Mike has produced a series of show-stopping models from an assortment of vintage Airfix toolings with very little recourse to after market products. The step by step guides are superbly photographed, each build demonstrating a specific technique and each article summarised in a ‘How To’ page that is both clear and concise. The overall content and presentation has excited enthusiastic comment from both sides of the Atlantic, and we have been inundated with requests to see the material in book form, where more space can be given to each model, and the excellent quality of the work involved can better be appreciated.
If you are a beginner, an intermediate, or even consider yourself an expert modeller, this book has something for you – be it new ideas, new ways to solve problems, or simply new ways to look at some of those old kits you built when you were young.
