TANK ART 1: WW2 GERMAN ARMOR (3rd edition).
There are many "how-to" books in today's world of scale modeling, but none has covered the "why", as well as, the "how-to" processes… the modeler's artistic approach, until now. In TANKART, a painting and weathering guide book series, the focus is on taking real-life observations of paint and weathering effects and incorporating the best techniques to replicate them. Within this first volume, WWII German Armor, I will go deeper into my thoughts about the why of certain steps as it relates to German camo schemes. Combined with my education in design, my passion for learning & teaching, and some clear informative photography, we have strived to produced a book which focuses on the importance of telling the story of each vehicle. To bring these ideas to life requires a spectrum of processes and techniques which are covered in great detail; including the Hairspray Technique and my new Oil Paint Rendering -- techniques that can be combined in an layered array to tell the story of each model.
The 3rd Edition of TANKART 1 German Armor book is printed in the standardized TA format of 8.5" x 9.5", expanded with 2 additional model chapters to 288-pages in length. Each book is wrapped in a matt laminated cover stock with the interior pages designed to show the models and writings at their absolute best. Inside the models; Befehls Panther G, Tiger I Initial, Sd.Kfz 251/22 Pakwagen, Hetzer, and Panzer IV DAK are presented in an updated and refined layout. The guest author, Lester Plaskitt's worldclass Sd.Kfz 251/21 Drilling is expanded to match the style of the other chapters, including new orange caption boxes explaining his impressive skills.
New to the 3rd Edition printing are two models that provide greater expansion of the TA1 conversations. The first is a winterized 1/35 10.5cm Sturmhaubitze 42, and the second is a very popular model finally getting its TANKART debut, the infamous 1/35 Panzer IV mit 88mm. This model was the first build of its kind after photos surfaced of this unique and rare field-modified Panzer IV. In addition to these 2 model chapters, the Technique Chapters have been edited and updated to the latest in conversations related to using the Hair Spray Technique, Oil Paint Rendering, and newly added Technique Proficiency pages.
