A Modeller's Handbook of Painting and Lining

To continue a previous theme of Christmas presents, Suzi also bought me A Modeller's Handbook of Painting and Lining by Ian Rathbone.

The presentation is up to the usual Wild Swan standard and the content is superb! Ian Rathbone makes it look so easy too! This is, of course, the sign of someone who not only knows what they're doing but also someone who can communicate ideas across with ease.
I won't go into too much detail of its contents, as it would take some time! But I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone who paints their own models or wishes to start.

  1. It is a good book, but anyone wishing to buy Ian's recommended 135H Haff lining pen is in for a disappointment; production has ceased. The alternative offered by the company is a well-balanced knife-spring pen which is capable of doing everything the 135H was....and very good it is too!
