It goes without saying that all the models/dioramas in the book look great. This book answers some of those 'how'd he do that?' questions, as well as suggestions on how to improve one's own projects. Mr. Zaloga's talent for writing provides expert advice and shows readers how to get the most out of their projects... I'd recommend this book to any armor enthusiast.

Even a novice will find find some technique or some different manner in approaching a difficult area and resolve the problem. Whether it be weathering or simply adding stowage, there is a lot which can be learned from this book. Variety, as someone once said, is the spice of life. Zaloga's new book is full of a variety of interesting projects from the more 'conventional' to the extremely unusual -- the U.S. Firefly in U.S. service is a welcome 1/48th scale project.
Jim Rae, Armorama (October 2007)
Combining masterful technique, a remarkably keen intellect and the eye of a true artist... [Steven Zaloga] thoroughly and concisely explains his paint and weathering techniques... Aside from exstensive and easily-understood text, this book is chock-full of excellent, step-by-step full-color photographs that, with their accompanying captions, provide as complete a reference as any one could wish for.

All of the articles are superbly done with nice color photos showing how the builder went from base kit and a pile of aftermarket to the end product. It is full of informative hints and tips and how-to pieces that can be used by modelers of just about any genre in addition to armor builders... Overall, it is another fine addition to the Osprey Modelling series and is something that modelers of all interest levels will find useful.
