The Airfix Kit: From the Box,
Detailed & Converted


by Spencer Pollard




Spencer Pollard announces his latest modelling guide, ready for presale this week.

Following on from the release of his earlier titles, Spencer Pollard has created a detailed guide to the building and painting of the Airfix 1/48 Hunter F.6 (from the box and detailed) and T.7 (converted using the Aerocraft conversion kit).



Comprising 52 pages, this in-depth guide is printed on glossy paper with high production values, clearly guides the modeller through everything that they will need to construct and paint this very popular aircraft in 1/48 scale. Open the covers and you will find in-depth features that discuss the kits in detail and the work that will need to carry out to get the best from them.You will also find a walk-round of Bruntingthorpe’s T.7 exhibit, as well as full-sized images taken as the aircraft was retired from Omani service.



Each chapter offers plenty of construction and painting tips, with easy to follow ideas that will help you to build this aircraft from the Airfix F.6 kit. Projects range from one suitable for the beginner, through to a conversion feature that is aimed more at the seasoned modeller looking for a challenge. But more than that, the ideas and thoughts offered will also be of use should you not only want to build other kits of this family of aircraft in other scales. It’s all there!



As with all of Spencer's books, this one is strictly 'Limited Edition' and can only be bought direct from him. Once the books are sold out, they will only be reprinted if there are sufficient orders to warrant another run, so if you want one, grab one now - once they are gone, for now, they are gone! If you have collected any of his earlier books you will know what to expect from this one and will I am sure, not want to miss out!
