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!

Our Strongest Book Launch Yet!

Thanks to everyone who purchased Building the Wingnut Wings Albatros D.Va in 1/32 Scale for making its launch a huge success! It has already become our strongest book launch ever, and the feedback so far has been fantastic. The comment below, from Nuno Andresen in Portugal, sums it up nicely:

I purchased mine some days ago, read it thoroughly until last night and I am extremely well impressed with it. Beautiful build, spectacular painting, great reading and meticulously presented in a very consistent way that embraces all readers: from novices to experts. The digital format itself, and this has to be said, is an improvement over paper: in my iPad Pro it flows beautifully well and I can enlarge instantly every building detail I want to see sharper and larger. Pagination is pristine and the price is almost offered: it is meaningless. Congratulations to Karim Bibi! A spectacular model and a tremendous digital book. Highly recommended!

Thanks, Nuno!

Albatros Book to Include Ronny Bar Artwork!

I’m pleased to announce that our next title, Building the Wingnut Wings Albatros D.Va in 1/32 Scale, by Karim Bibi, will include all-new profile artwork by Ronny Bar. Ronny has redrawn these profiles from scratch especially for this title, as the original artwork he did for Wingnut Wings was lost in a computer crash. Thanks, Ronny! I’ve attached a low-resolution teaser sample to whet your appetites.

Be assured that the examples that appear in the book will be much higher resolution, and without the watermark!
