Description

Converting models figures is a fascinating pastime, which can become rather costly if you choose models in metal, or resin.  For those of us on a budget, yet still wanting to achieve a more than acceptable result, polythene figures [more usually the province of wargamers] set an interesting challenge.  Today, we are blessed indeed that a great diversity of model soldiers, sailors and airmen in all scales, from all of the major combatant nations throughout history, are available from some very notable manufacturers across the world. The book includes detailed step-by-step guides to:  Modifying figures - Changing arm and leg positions - Altering uniforms - Adding extra detail - Changing faces - Choosing the right tools for the job - Detailing your figures - Historical accuracy
