Once seen as a niche practice, the craft of weathering has now become firmly rooted in the railway modelling mainstream. Not simply a means of rendering models in layers of dirty paint, weathering involves a myriad of techniques aimed at improving realism, including distinctive surface textures, highlights and shading, burnishing and peeling paint finishes. The weathering process brings out the best in a model, making moulded relief or a lustrous livery really stand out. As well as replicating the real world more closely, weathering also helps a model to look at home within a scenic setting. Aimed at modellers of all abilities and eras, this book is an essential guide to creating the most realistic locomotives and rolling stock in any scale. It includes: a guide to tools, paints, washes, dry pigments and other innovative media; the correct techniques for model preparation; a wide range of techniques for wagons, carriages, locomotives and multiple units in any scale; how to replicate authentic surface textures and effects, from polished surfaces to corroded metal and worn timber; how to bring models to life with faded paintwork, peeling and chipped finishes and subtle highlights and shading; the secret to successful airbrushing. This book will be of great interest to railway modellers of varying abilities, particularly those interested in rolling stock and locomotives, and is fully illustrated with 660 colour photographs.

This book is about the art of displaying waterline models. By their very nature, ship models that do not show the full hull and are not mounted on an artificial stand cry out for a realistic setting. At its most basic this can be just a representation of the sea itself, but to give the model a context – even to tell some sort of story – is far more challenging. This is the province of the diorama, which at its most effective is a depiction of a scene or an event in which the ship model takes centre stage. As with a painting, the composition is a vital element and this book devotes much of its space to what works and what does not, and illustrates with photographic examples why the best maritime dioramas have visual power and how to achieve that impact. Individual chapters explore themes like having small craft in attendance on the main subject, multiple-model scenarios, dockyards and naval bases, and the difficulties of replicating naval combat realistically. It also looks at both extremes of modelmaking ambition: the small single-ship exposition and the largest, most ambitions projects of the kind meant for museum display. The book concludes with some of the most advanced concepts – how to create drama and the illusion of movement, and how to manipulate perspective. Illustrated throughout with colour photos, the more abstract discussion is backed with practical 'how to' sections, so anyone who builds waterline ship model will benefit from reading this book.

This wide ranging and informative book, which is brimming with practical advice, is aimed at all those who wish to create authentic models of ports, canals, quays, wharfs and their associated railway infrastructure. Topics covered in this new book include the history of ports and inland waterways, and the important role played by the railways in facilitating their operation; layout plans and ideas, all based on prototypes, that are aimed specifically at the scratch builder; a selection of modelling projects are included with dioramas of both a canal wharf and two different estuary ports, supported by nearly 400 hundred step-by-step colour photographs, drawings and track plans. Finally, it covers the modelling and painting techniques that can be used to create realistic-looking water and how models can be made more convincing and brought to life by the addition of appropriate colouring and weathering. This practical guide is aimed at railway modellers of all abilities, and will also be of interest to modellers in general. Beautifully illustrated with 394 colour step-by-step photographs, drawings and track plans.
