From the first car kits produced in the early 1950s, mainly dominated by American machinery, we now have a choice of automotive examples from around the world. The joint scale of 1:24/1:25 dominates car models, and it is these scales that will mostly be found in this book, from stock builds to race cars to wild customs. In addition, although injection styrene is the main material of choice, there are specialist builds using resin, white metal and photo-etched parts. The book includes detailed step-by-step guides for Building out of the box- Customs and conversions- Applying decals- Dealing with resin- Wiring and engines- Salvaging old kits- A dented ride for 007- NASAs Hot Road- Dirtying a dirt track racer- An alien homage to Roth.
