LET’S BUILD… MODELLING GUIDES, NOW AVAILABLE DIGITALLY!

If you missed out on copies of my first three books, now is your chance to easily grab digital copies to read, inspire and collect!

In offering these books in this way, I can generate additional income that will allow me to continue to work within this industry. So please, if you would like to support what I do and would like me to continue to build models and reveal the results to you, consider downloading a title, it really will provide some much needed support!

Hello everyone! 

Having released my modelling guides as Limited-Edition printed volumes, I am now delighted to announce that my first three aircraft titles are available to download onto your phone, tablet and computer, via Pocketmags. For those of you that missed out on these exciting titles, this will allow you to read them and hopefully gain much inspiration to build similar models for your collections.

Buying copies of these books really couldn’t be simpler, needing little more than  the email that you would use for your Pocketmags login (should you already have one) or the email address that you use to access your Apple, or Google accounts. This will allow you to purchase a book and then read it across all of your preferred devices.

The books have been uploaded to the ‘Modellers Reference Library’ portal at the following address:

http://www.pocketmags.com/titlelink.aspx?titleid=1142

Click on that page and you will find all three of my books, Spitfire, Messerschmitt and Mustang, as well as ordering information that you will need should you wish to purchase a copy of one, or indeed all(!) of the titles. The cost of each book is £12.99 which is considerably less that the printed volumes. Indeed, for international readers, you can now download all three of these tiles for the cost of a single printed book that includes postage and packing – I’d call that very good value for money!

This is an exciting development for my work and one that I hope you are happy to see. In offering these books in this way, I can generate additional income that will allow me to continue to work within this industry. So please, if you would like to support what I do and would like me to continue to build models and reveal the results to you, consider downloading a title, it really will provide some much needed support! Not only allow will it allow me to offer material Online, it will also enable to creation of future publications that I can then offer once again in printed format, as well as via the Pocketmags App.

Here are the three books as offered, the links that you need to flow for purchase, being below the image of each one.

Thanks so much for your support and I hope that you enjoy reading these three modelling guides!

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.

  1. Do you cover how to get the tires extra shiny? #shinyfuckingtires. Or do you mostly focus on how fragile your ego is

    • Hey Mr. Pattison – how are you? Long time no speak! No, nothing on the tyres, but I’m always happy to polish my ego to match. How about you?

    • Huge Janus

      No but plenty of tips on how to avoid having to make a cryewanking video about fixing easily avoidable decal problems.

    • It’s building scale models. Why be so butt hurt, old man?
