In reviewing the book I have just two issues, Firstly a minor one and one that does not in my opinion detract from the book. All the text is in Italian/English. This is not such a great issue, but worth pointing out as some may not like this. The translations are very good and unlike some other dual language modelling books I had no trouble following the text or feeling that the English had been miss translated.
The second issue was the length of time that delivery took. Almost a whole month which in these times of instant turnaround of e-bay orders was a little annoying. I had previously read about horror stories concerning the Italian postal service but was not prepared for this delay.
The book costs 22.50 Euros. (£25.00 UK Pounds after exchange and delivery). the ISBN code is;
Overall I would give this manual a firm thumbs up, but find it difficult to award it a 10 out of 10. I am therefore going to declare a 8.5 or 9 out of 10, due to the issues stated above.
Finally, although targeted at the Military modeller, the tips are just as relevant to model railway modellers and model boat builders and should have something for anyone who builds plastic kits - what ever the scale or subject matter.
The next time I am in Ian Allen's bookstore, Birmingham I will check out the other three volumes and see if they are worth the cover price.
