Printed Books?

As the old saying goes, where there’s a will, there’s a way! KLP customer Jan Hendricks has taken the unusual (and expensive!) step of having two of our books (Building the Wingnut Wings Albatros D.Va in 1/32 Scale and Building the Wingnut Wings AEG G.IV Late in 1/32 Scale) commercially printed and bound.

And I must say, they look quite impressive!

We’ll be looking into the viability of some print-on-demand services next year. But my question for you guys is this: what would you be willing to pay for physical, printed copies of our books?

Please leave a comment here, on our Facebook page, or even contact me directly, and share your thoughts on this idea. I’d love to hear them!

Quick v1.3 Update to “Building Brick’s Sabre”

What was I saying earlier about crossing your T’s and dotting your I’s? Turns out, I jumped the gun slightly with the v1.2 update of Building Brick’s Sabre in 1/32 Scale. One of the only two reference books I could find that covered the CAC Sabre turns out to have never actually been published! I got the story directly from the publisher’s mouth to my own ears, but won’t recount it here. Suffice it to say, this has now caused me to update the book yet again, to v1.3!

For sake of both transparency and posterity, I’ve left the entry in question in the book, but suitably amended and explained, should anybody else come across its mention in their searches.

Once again, mea culpa!

v1.2 of “Building the Wingnut Wings AEG G.IV Late” is Now Available!

With the impending release of Building the Wingnut Wings Albatros D.Va in 1/32 Scale, by Karim Bibi, I thought I’d take the opportunity to update and expand Karim’s earlier title: Building the Wingnut Wings AEG G.IV Late in 1/32 Scale.

The Version 1.2 update includes a new bio for Karim, a new Contents page with clickable links, and the introduction of a new Appendices section covering aftermarket and reference items. This brings it in line with our more recent titles, and adds 13 pages to the book overall.

And for existing purchasers of the book, you can download the new update for free! Long-time customers will already know that we offer free lifetime updates to all our titles whenever they’re released, as long as you didn’t purchase it as a guest (if you did, contact me and we can sort it out). For new purchasers, the price remains the same as it has always been: just 15 Australian dollars. Bargain!

Here’s what some of our readers have said about Building the Wingnut Wings AEG G.IV Late in 1/32 Scale:

“I can’t recommend this book highly enough. Go grab a copy!”
– Bob’s Buckles, England

“Having purchased two of the WNW AEG’s, this e-book looked too good to pass up. Easily downloaded from KLP’s web store, it comes in an easy to read PDF. Haven’t read the entire book as of yet, but the information and tips gathered from a cursory read this far are brilliant! A definite highly recommended!”
– Military Replicas In Scale, via Facebook

“Yes, this is a great book, worth every penny and then some!“
– Tracy Hancock

So, download your updated copy, or head over to our webshop and grab yourselves a bargain!

Hot on the heels of adding renowned illustrator Claes Sundin to our Partners page, I’m pleased to announced the addition of his equally renowned colleague Ronny Bar.

v1.1 of “Building the Wingnut Wings AEG G.IV Late” Now Available!

I’m pleased to announced that we’ve just released Version 1.1 of our very first build guide, Building the Wingnut Wings AEG G.IV Late in 1/32 Scale, by Karim Bibi. This update is actually only very minor, featuring a few tiny layout tweaks, and the addition of a rear cover page. That’s it!

Being a digital publication means this kind of update is very easy to do, and we will continue to update all our books in this fashion any time it becomes appropriate or necessary.

This new update is free to download for anyone who has already purchased this book. If you have an account with us, simply log in and download a new copy of the book from Downloads section of your account. Otherwise, the download link contained in your original purchase notification email should still be valid.

If neither of these scenarios applies to you, and you’d still like to download your updated copy, create a customer account here on the website, and then contact me so that I can associate your purchase with your new account. Once that is done, you can log in and download it from your purchase history.

And of course, if you haven’t purchased Building the Wingnut Wings AEG G.IV Late in 1/32 Scale at all yet, you’re more than welcome to do so! And what’s more, we’ve temporarily discounted the purchase price from 15 Australian dollars to 12! This price will be valid for 7 days from today, before returning to its original price, so jump in for a bargain while you can!
