This book is, like most Kalmbach RR books, made up of reprints from Model Railroader Magazine. That's not necessarily a bad thing but this book had less than 90 pages and most were very basic. I was hoping for more involved articles with advanced techniques explained.
This book has quite a variety of structure projects from houses to industrial structures. Like most of these books, they seem aimed at the beginner to intermediate modeler but we all can learn from others though. Like other books in this series, I think one can take these techniques and apply them to diverse projects that are not necessarily specifically covered and therein lies the real value. I have read a number of Model Railroader magazine books and have learned quite a bit from them
Excellent information source You couldn't ask for more This is just great and just what was needed. and i am really i made this purchase . Every model railrader should have a copy of this book on their shelf.
Excellent. I really like these updated, themed reprints in a single volume... might be able to recyc those shelves of old magazines someday...
Very informative and useful information. I read them from cover to cover at my Doctors appointments and am always opening for reference.
Nice to be able to quickly find articles pertaining to structure modeling without hours of searching the magazine index database.
Excellent, hands-on, how-to for scratch building! Great pics and practical insights into this miniature world of modeling.
Very useful for a model maker like me. Have added it to my collection....Bookworm
