A wide range of kits has been produced over the years, model manufacturers and this book provides an in-depth look at how to build this type across a variety of scales. Featuring information useful to modellers of all standards the book covers such diverse areas of Phantom modelling as super-detailing, weathering and sourcing further information.
Geoff Coughlin has been building scale models for over twenty years. He is known to many in the hobby through articles that regularly appear in popular magazines: these include 'Tamiya Model Magazine International' and 'Scale Models International'. The subjects featured in these journals cover practically every aspect of building scale aircraft models from biplane vac-forms such as the Aeroclub Gloster Gauntlet to the stunning Tamiya F-15E Strike Eagle and Revell / Monogram He III. He is now in his sixth year as a contributor. Geoff has just finished writing a book about building the new Tamiya Fairey Swordfish aimed specifically at the modeller.
