1:32 Italeri Kits, Reviews 'n' Builds RAF Aircraft Weathering


Have you wanted to order a copy of this very popular modelling guide, but not yet placed an order. Now is your final chance because once they are gone, they are gone!

There are plans to offer it as a digital download at some point, so you will have that option, but certainly as a printed title, there are no plans to ever reprint this book, in this format.

Last year I published an update announcing that I was going to be reprinting my Tornado book for those that had missed out on grabbing a copy for their collections. With all of those orders fulfilled, there are around a dozen copies left of the book, which are now available for final sale. I’ve decided that this book will be deleted from the collection once these copiers are sold, so if you would like a final copy, now is the chance! There are plans to offer it as a digital download at some point, so you will have that option, but certainly as a printed title, there are no plans to ever reprint this book, in this format.

Here is the update that I published last year with all of the information should you wish to grab a copy of this very popular title!

Following on from the release of my earlier titles, I created a detailed guide to the building and painting of the Tornado GR.4 in miniature, last year. Following on from some recent questions from modellers regarding the book’s availability (not to mention the release of Italeri’s brand-new IDS kit) I’ve decided to carry out a small reprint of this very popular book. So, for those who would like a copy, here is some further information on it, and then Paypal links for your copy including postage and packing to wherever you might live…

Each chapter offers plenty of construction and painting tips, with easy to follow ideas that will help you to build this aircraft from Italeri’s 1/32 kit. If you’ve not seen the book in my earlier updates (now deleted from this site) here are some screen-grabs that show off plenty of the contents.

Below you will find all of the payment details to go with the earlier information on the book. Should you wish to see once again some of the pages from the book, please visit my earlier Blog entry:


As with previous titles, this one is being created as a strictly limited-run product and as before, the price reflects this. Many of you will already have the other books in your collections so — hopefully — will know what this means in terms of quality and how enjoyable it is to own something that’s rather niche in its approach!

Here you will find payment links should you wish to purchase a copy of this new book.

UK Orders including postage and packing: £24.50 – PayPal.Me/DavidP671/25

Europe Orders including postage and packing: £29.50 – PayPal.Me/DavidP671/30

Rest Of World including postage and packing: £35.50 – PayPal.Me/DavidP671/36


When using the Paypal links, please can you ensure that you leave your full name and postal address so that I can complete my ordering list ready to have the books sent out to you. Please can you also confirm that you have placed your order and made your payment via email, using the email address seen below. This will allow me to confirm your payment with you and request any additional information should it be required. Because of the way that PayPal reveals information on their site, sometimes I won’t see your address or email, so please be sure to send your address  – without it, I can’t send your book out!

Here is my email address:


Thank you all so much for you support with this project and for taking the time to read this update. I hope that you enjoy the book when it arrives and hope that you all have a wonderful day. Thanks so much!

Spencer Pollard, November 2021.

I'm formerly the editor in charge of Military In Scale magazine and latterly, Model Airplane International. Editing duties to one side, I'm now a full-time modelmaker with Doolittle Media, working to supply modelling articles and material for a number of their group titles, including MAI and Tamiya Model Magazine International. I'm also an avid fan of Assassin's creed, Coventry City FC and when the mood takes me, a drummer of only passing skill. Here though, you'll find what I do best: build models and occassionally, write about them!

    I would love this and your previous books but with my house and shed about to burst with books and kits. digital downloads seem the way to go plus being able to zoom in on pictures 👍. Please publish in digital format Spencer 😁


    • That’s definitely coming up! I have an arrangement in place – I just have to deal with the new files and we will be good to go…

    I recently picked this kit up as I was inspired by your build so I’ll definitely get this book, I’ll wait for the digital copy though as that will work better with my modelling setup. I have to say I think offering your work in digital format is a great idea.


    • Hi Dan – thanks for your reply. Just to put you in the picture, the digital issues are likely to be released towards the end of the year, so keep an eye open for them, then!
