I’m pleased to announce that our eBook, Building the HpH Fw 189 ‘Uhu’ in 1/32 Scale by Jan Gabauer, has now been updated to version 1.2!

v1.0 was first published back in June of 2018, we’ve now added a pair of appendices at the back of the book. One covers the only available aftermarket product for this already very complete kit, while the other lists as many relevant reference titles as we could find.

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 an applicable new product is released, or we find an error somewhere.

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 HpH Fw 189 ‘Uhu’ in 1/32 Scale at all yet, you’re more than welcome to do so!

Announcing “Building the Fly Arado Ar 234 in 1/32 Scale”!

I’m pleased to announce that, after an 8-month hiatus, work has finally begun on our next title: Building the Fly Arado Ar 234 in 1/32 Scale, by Kent Karlsen. Kent builds not one, but two examples of the Fly 1/32 Ar 234 kit, turning one into the V6 4-engine prototype, and the other into a fantastic Ar 234B-2 maintenance diorama.

Mechanics and ground crew are busy at work in Kent Karlsen’s terrific Ar 234B-2 maintenance diorama.

The book’s bonus build sees Kent replace the kit’s Jumo engines with BMW 003 units, before adding an additional pair of BMW engines to produce the V6 prototype.

Kent’s terrific Ar 234A V6 conversion of the Fly kit, complete with Kettenkrad from Zoukei-Mura.

The book will detail how Kent tackled both of these builds, including all the aftermarket products used. Speaking of which, there will be our usual appendices that list all of the aftermarket products available, along with decals, paint masks, and relevant reference books.

Building the Fly Arado Ar 234 in 1/32 Scale is due for release some time in late Q2 or early Q3 2020 as an eBook only. Check back here regularly or subscribe to our blog for updates, sample pages, and a definitive release date!

v1.3 of “Building the Revell P-51D” Released!

Thanks to eagle-eyed customer Chris Nicoll for spotting a couple of errors in Jan Gabauer’s book, Building the Revell P-51D in 1/32 Scale.

v1.1 of “Building the Revell P-51D” Released

Due to an oversight on my part (mea culpa!), I’ve had to make a small amendment to our newly-launched book, Building the Revell P-51D-5NA in 1/32 Scale. All new purchasers will obviously get the new version, but if you’ve already purchased the book, you can log in to your account and download it from your purchase history.

Before anyone panics, however, be assured that the amendment does not affect the book’s content, and in fact consists of a copyright attribution for Juanita Franzi’s artwork that I forgot to include in the launch version. My apologies to Juanita for this oversight! Thanks to the nature of digital publishing, this becomes a very easy mistake to fix.

Many thanks to everyone who has purchased the book so far!
