“Building the Zoukei-Mura Ta 152H in 1/32 Scale” is Now Available!

I’m pleased to announce that our latest eBook title, Building the Zoukei-Mura Ta 152H in 1/32 Scale, by John Kim, is now available!

In this 166-page eBook, John Kim takes you through the building, painting, and finishing of the terrific 1/32 scale Ta 152H kit from Zoukei-Mura.

Zoukei-Mura released two variants of the kit: an initial Ta 152H-1 kit, and a follow-up Ta 152H-0 release with refined tooling. Wanting to build a Ta 152H-0, but not being able to find the correct kit, John decided to take the earlier Ta 152H-1 release and backdate it to H-0 configuration. John takes us through not only the simple panel line modifications required for the backdating process, but also his building, painting, and weathering processes to produce the terrific model you see in the book.

Also included are the usual appendices covering aftermarket products, decals and masks, and reference titles.

The book retails for 15 Australian dollars.

And as with all our books, should any updates be required, anyone who purchased the pre-update version gets lifetime free access to all subsequent updated versions! All new purchasers will of course receive the updated version automatically.

Note: all our prices are in Australian dollars.

Remember to Download Your Purchases!

Thanks everyone for your support with regard to our latest releases! With that said, I suspect some of our customers are failing to realise that our books are digital in nature, and not the physical printed variety. I can only surmise that from the small number of purchases that are not being downloaded. I generally contact customers directly about this, but sometimes I don’t get a response, so perhaps in some cases the issue is that emails are not getting through.

Whatever the case, please don’t forget to download your books once you’ve purchased them! And if you don’t receive the order confirmation email containing the download links, please contact me! Other arrangements can be made, but remember that if you create an account on our website, you can log in and download anything you’ve purchased from the Downloads section of your account.

For more information, please see the following article our website:

Our next title, Building the Zoukei-Mura Ta 152H in 1/32 Scale, is progressing well, and on track for a September release!

Announcing “Building the Zoukei-Mura Ta 152H in 1/32 Scale”!

I’m pleased to announce that work is well under way on Build Guide No. 7, Building the Zoukei-Mura Ta 152H in 1/32 Scale, by John Kim. Anyone who has followed John’s work on the Large Scale Planes forums will know that he is a fantastic modeller, and in this book, he works his magic on one of Zoukei-Mura’s early large scale releases: the Ta 152H.

Zoukei-Mura released two variants of the kit: an initial Ta 152H-1 kit, and a follow-up Ta 152H-0 release with refined tooling. Wanting to build a Ta 152H-0, but not being able to find the correct kit, John decided to take the earlier Ta 152H-1 release and backdate it to H-0 configuration.

John takes us through not only the simple panel line modifications required for the backdating process, but also his building, painting, and weathering processes to produce the terrific model you see below.

There’s plenty of work to do before the book is ready, but we’re on track for a September release, so stay tuned for more updates and a definitive release date!
