I’m pleased to announced that we’ve just released Version 1.1 of our most recent build guide, Building the Zoukei-Mura Ta 152H in 1/32 Scale, by John Kim. This update is actually only very minor, featuring a few tiny layout tweaks and adjustments. 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 Zoukei-Mura Ta 152H 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!

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!
