Giles Favell

Softback  -  144 pages  -  £26.95


With a foreword by Steve Flint, Railway Modeller editor and long time friend of the author, this book describes and shows how Pete Goss sets about building his wonderful buildings and landscapes. Very well illustrated and including a wealth of informative sketches and plans, the book takes the form of a step by step guide to each of the stages of construction from initial idea through to finish painting and setting into the scene. The book gives the background to Pete's various award winning layouts and also covers figure modification and painting and the effective placing of miniature populations into the scene.

With the author's background in working with "real buildings" the book is also of full information and detail about the prototype, which will enable the reader to adapt the techniques shown to suit subjects of their own choosing. The book also includes a wealth of high quality and inspiring images and plans of Pete's finished models and the scenes in which they appear.
