Making Scale Models

The perfect guide for those who have never made a model before or who want to develop or increase their skills From cutting a straight line to making a scaled human figure that "lives," through to creating beautifully detailed buildings and finely detailed furniture, the book takes you through each stage of the process. The book discusses methods for a wide range of disciplines, from theater design to railway modeling to interior design. Alongside a practical guide to tools and materials are the basic techniques for constructing scale models using simple, readily available materials. There are step-by-step guides to projects designed to practice and develop skills, as well as advanced ideas which focus on color, texture, and form to bring models to life.
