  1. I’m pleased to announce that our newest title, Building the Airfix Buccaneer S.2C in 1/48 Scale is now available! Airfix’s 2022 release of a new-tool Buccaneer S.2C in 1/48 scale has been welcomed by modellers around the globe, and in this 112-page eBook, renowned UK modeller Geoff Couglin takes you through the building and painting of this new kit. Along with Geoff’s terrific build, we’ve also included some colour profiles by Simon Hill, an overview of the kit itself, and a set of ordnance-related bonus photos. And as with all our books, should more aftermarket products or reference titles be released, or we discover errors that need correcting, we will update the book accordingly. Anyone who purchased the pre-update version gets lifetime free access to all subsequent updated versions! All new purchasers will of course receive the updated version automatically. All this for just 15 Australian dollars! So head on over to our webstore and grab yourselves a bargain. Kev
  2. I’m pleased to announce that our next title, Building the Airfix Buccaneer S.2C in 1/48 Scale by Geoff Coughlin, is currently in development. Along with Geoff’s terrific build of the new Airfix kit, the book will feature a brief kit review, some technical notes about the Buccaneer, along with some colour profiles by Simon Hill. The release date is uncertain at this early stage, though development is not expected to be protracted, so stay tuned for more news and updates as they come to hand. Kev
  3. An astute reader of our latest title, Building the Wingnut Wings Felixstowe F.2A in 1/32 Scale, noticed that we hadn’t included the product number for the Archer rivet decals that Gary used on his build. Fair call! The book has now been updated to include this information, and consequently version 1.1 is now available. This update is a free download for all existing purchasers. And of course, new purchasers will always receive the latest version. Stay tuned for an announcement about our next title shortly! Kev
  4. I’m pleased to announce that our latest title, Building the Wingnut Wings Felixstowe F.2A (Early) in 1/32 Scale, is now available! In this 292-page eBook, Gary Boxall builds, paints, and rigs the giant Wingnut Wings 1/32 Felixstowe F.2A to an award-winning standard. While Gary’s build focusses on the ‘early’ boxing of the kit, his methods are equally applicable to the ‘late’ version, and we’ve included a great many photos of Gary’s rigging process to assist in this difficult area—helpful for anyone building any aircraft that requires even a modicum of rigging! Gary also describes how he painted the interior, modified parts to be more accurate or more detailed, cut custom masks for the eye-popping ‘swirl’ paint scheme, and made templates for the Aviattic fabric decals that cover the wings and tailplane. And much more! The book also includes a detailed look at the kit by Brett Green, and our usual Appendices covering available aftermarket and reference material. And all this for just 17 Australian dollars! So head on over to our webshop and grab yourself a bargain. Kev
  5. A new day, a new typo, and a new version! This time Building the Kitty Hawk HH-60G Pave Hawk in 1/35 Scale gets a bump to version 1.2. This is not a vital update, involving just a single extraneous word, but is a free download for all existing purchasers. And of course, new purchasers will always receive the latest version. Kev
  6. It's roughly a 10% difference, which is quite a lot, and would be quite noticeable. If we arbitrarily take the length in 1/32 to be 300mm, then the length in 1/35 would only be 270mm. And this is just the linear size in a single direction. Once you include the other 2 dimensions, and their cumulative volumetric implications, you can see that the size difference is no small thing. By way of comparison, the two figures below are separated in size by a factor of 50%: Yet visually, the difference looks a whole lot larger than that. Kev
  7. I’m pleased to advise that, after a whirlwind of activity, our next book, Building the Wingnut Wings Felixstowe F.2A (Early) in 1/32 Scale, has reached first draft status. While this makes it sound like it has only reached the halfway point, in reality, the book is now largely complete, and simply needs some spit and polish. No promises, but it should be ready for an official release in a week or two. Subscribe to our blog to stay up to date with all the latest news and announcements. Kev
  8. While it’s never any fun discovering an error in any of our publications, the beauty of digital publishing is that these things are relatively simple to fix, and get a new and improved version out. And so it is with Building the Kitty Hawk HH-60G Pave Hawk in 1/35 Scale. This time it was a minor layout issue that we missed during the proofing stage, which has been fixed, and v1.1 is now available for immediate download! All new purchasers will automatically receive this new version, while anyone who has already purchased it will be able to download it for free, either from the Downloads section of their account, or using the original link in the order confirmation email. All you need to do is re-download the book to obtain the updated version. If you have any trouble accessing the new version, please contact me and we’ll get it sorted out. Kev
  9. Two years ago today, we released the seventh title in our Build Guide Series, Building the Zoukei-Mura Ta 152H in 1/32 Scale. And to celebrate, for the next 5 days we’ve reduced the price by a massive 33% to just 10 Australian dollars! “…it’s amazing. He really put a lot of time and effort in that build. What a work of art. Congratulations on the quality of the book.“ – Jerry Crandall, Eagle Editions, USA “[The] Ta 152H book is really nice. Great quality and very in depth.” – Roy Sutherland, Barracuda Studios, USA “Ok, I’m not the cheering type…but I bought this book, downloaded it, put it on my tablet, and stayed up until 3am reading it. If you have the kit – get it.” – Jeff Herne, USA So, head on over to our webstore and grab yourself a bargain! Kev
  10. Yes, you read that right! Hot on the heels of the v1.2 release of Building the British Phantoms Volume One, Simon Hill, our esteemed provider of profiles, spots an error in one of his contributions. Well, you know the drill: the error has been corrected, and v1.3 is now available! All new purchasers will automatically receive this new version, while anyone who has already purchased it will be able to download it for free, either from the Downloads section of their account, or using the original link in the order confirmation email. All you need to do is re-download the book to obtain the updated version. If you have any trouble accessing the new version, please contact me and we’ll get it sorted out. Kev
  11. I’m pleased to announce that the next title in our Build Guide Series will be Building the Wingnut Wings Felixstowe F.2A (Early) in 1/32 Scale, by Gary Boxall. Those of you who have seen Gary’s amazing build on Facebook will appreciate just how terrific his model is. Work is currently under way, with an anticipated release date of late September. Stay tuned for more news and information as it comes to hand! And thanks to everyone who has purchased the new Phantom book so far for helping to make it our most successful book launch to date! More news soon… Kev
  12. I’d like to thank yet another eagle-eyed customer in the form of Rick Godden for spotting a couple of typos in our new book, Building the British Phantoms Volume One. These have been corrected, and Version 1.2 is now available. All new purchasers will automatically receive this new version, while anyone who has already purchased it will be able to download it for free, either from the Downloads section of their account, or using the original link in the order confirmation email. All you need to do is re-download the book to obtain the updated version. If you have any trouble accessing the new version, please contact me and we’ll get it sorted out. Kev
  13. Most people I’m sure are familiar with the term Murphy’s Law, and the general concept it represents. In the publishing game, we call it Muphry’s Law, and it seems to have struck again. Eagled-eyed reader Don Harding spotted some duplicated text in our new Phantom book, so we have now corrected this, and released a version 1.1 update. All new purchasers will automatically receive this new version, while anyone who has already purchased it will be able to download it for free, either from the Downloads section of their account, or using the original link in the order confirmation email. If you have any trouble accessing the new version, please contact me and we’ll get it sorted out. https://www.klp.com.au/product/building-the-british-phantoms-volume-one/ Kev
  14. Here is Geoff's reply regarding the missing anti-dazzle panel: So there you have it: Murphy's Law in action. Kev
