  1. Hot on the heels of last month’s v1.8 update, Jan Gabauer’s Building the Revell P-51D-5NA Mustang in 1/32 Scale now gets updated to v1.9! This update—like most of our updates—is merely the result of some more tweaking and fine-tuning of the text layout, and is therefore in no way an urgent one. This is a free update for all existing purchasers of the book, while new purchasers will of course always receive the very latest version. If you purchased this book while logged in to your account, simply re-download it from the Downloads section of your profile on the KLP website. The original download link in your order confirmation email should also work. If you don’t have an account and haven’t kept the original email, create an account and then contact me , and we’ll get it sorted out. To stay tuned for further news and updates, simply subscribe to our blog via email, and you’ll get all the latest in your in-box as it happens. Kev
  2. I’m pleased to announced that the very first title in our Build Guide Series, Building the Wingnut Wings AEG G.IV Late in 1/32 Scale by Karim Bibi, has now been updated to version 1.3! This update sees a number of annoying hyphenation issues resolved, some new product images added to the text, and the restoration of a lost paragraph! This is a free update for all existing purchasers of the book, while new purchasers will of course always receive the very latest version. If you purchased this book while logged in to your account, simply re-download it from the Downloads section of your profile on the KLP website. The original download link in your order confirmation email should also work.

  3. I’m pleased to announce that our next title will be Building the Kitty Hawk HH-60G Pavehawk in 1/35 Scale, by Pete Fleischmann. This will be No. 13 in our Build Guide Series, and as the title suggests, will feature Pete’s amazing build of the Kitty Hawk 1/35 HH-60G Pavehawk kit, in a vignette with a complement of equally amazing figures from Live Resin. Work has begun, and we’re hoping to nail down the first draft by the end of the month. Stay tuned for updates and more information as it comes to hand! Kev
  4. We've already had some really fantastic feedback about this release, which I'm very pleased about! Here are some snippets: "This is by far the most extensive and detailed F-104 build I have ever seen and as I have several (T)F104’s of Italeri stashed away for future builds I know now what to check and correct. I was also amazed about the use of HGW rivets on a natural metal zipper..." – Patrick Janssen “Wow, that is amazing detail on the 104. Photo after photo of the most outstanding workmanship.“ – Mike Kaehler, Canada “Another great collection of build correction/aftermarket additions to build a great aircraft! Oh and then Chuck shows you how to do a flawless black paint basecoat for your NMF…. How to work with HGW rivets and the tools he uses to build this show winner! I’ve said it before for the price of a magazine you can have a wealth of information at your finger tips!” – Dan Gregory, USA “…another amazing ebook that will be well thumbed as per all the previous purchases.“ – Aaron Scott, UK “Having now had a chance for a quick perusal of your new title, a few observations: • First, for anyone contemplating tackling the Italeri 104, Chuck’s description of the build is very comprehensive and nicely covered in both text and photos. • Second, even if you are not a fan of the F-104, if you are interested in producing a natural metal finish with paints, Chuck has given a detailed account of his experiments with Alclad as well as clear coats and a few metallic washes which should prove really useful to you. Those of you who have followed his builds know that Chuck does a great job describing his methods, and the “tutorial” sections in this volume are excellent examples. • Finally, as a bit of a Starfighter nut myself, I really like the the extensive walk around section as well as the complete coverage of available (and not so available) aftermarket accessories and decals for the F-104 in “our” scale. Bravo, gentlemen, on an excellent publication!“ – Rockie Yarwood, USA https://www.klp.com.au/product/building-the-italeri-cf-104-starfighter-in-1-32-scale/ Kev
  5. I’m pleased to announce that our latest title, Building the Italeri CF-104 Starfighter in 1/32 Scale by Chuck Sawyer, is now available! In this 326-page eBook, Chuck builds the Italeri 1/32 F-104G Starfighter kit as a Canadian CF-104, combining it with a modest selection of aftermarket products to produce a stunning model. Along the way, Chuck treats us to tutorials on obtaining a flawless gloss finish, getting the best out of the Alclad range of metallic paints, and how to apply HGW’s tricky Wet Transfer decals. Along with kit reviews by Dave Williams and our usual array of Appendices, we’ve also included a 65-page walkaround by Gord McTaggart, of the CF-104 that currently resides at The Military Museum in Calgary Alberta, Canada. Chuck’s build is highly instructive, and will be invaluable to anybody wishing to build the Italeri Starfighter, irrespective of the particular variant they’re building. And as with all our books, should any updates be required, anyone who purchased a prior version gets lifetime free access to all subsequent updated versions! All new purchasers will of course receive the updated version automatically. The book is available from our website for 18 Australian dollars. Kev
  6. One of the cornerstones of the KLP Publishing business model is lifetime free updates on all of our titles. And it’s not an empty promise, as anyone who has been following us for any length of time can attest. Our books get updated on an as-needs basis, and these updates can range from something as small as fixing a typo, all the way up to adding entire new sections to the book. The fourth title in our Build Guide Series, Building the Revell P-51D-5NA Mustang in 1/32 Scale, was updated only a month ago, but here we are again, updating it to v1.8! There’s always been this one product image in this book that I’ve never been happy with, and I’ve finally been able to replace it with a slightly better version. And you can bet that if I find an even better version, I’ll be updating the book again! As always, this update is free for existing purchasers, and new purchasers will always get the very latest version. If you purchased this book while logged in to your account, simply re-download it from the Downloads section of your profile on the KLP website. The original download link in your order confirmation email should also work. If you don’t have an account and haven’t kept the original email, create an account and then contact me, and we’ll get it sorted out.

  8. 31 March 2022 marks KLP Publishing’s 5th year in business, and to celebrate, we’ve decided to have yet another 20% off sale!

  9. Anyone who has bought any of our titles before, or followed KLP Publishing for any length of time, will know that we occasionally revise and update our books—whether it be to fix typos, content errors, layout issues, or to add more content and pages. Best of all, we offer these updates free of charge to all existing purchasers of the title in question; in other words, lifetime free updates! And of course, new purchasers always receive the latest version of the book. Well, now it’s the turn of the fourth title in our Build Guide Series, Building the Revell P-51D-5NA in 1/32 Scale, to receive an update—its seventh in fact! This update fixes some minor typographical and layout issues, and we’ve replaced one low-res product image with a better one. As such, v1.7 is not a critical or urgent update, and existing purchasers can download it at their leisure, or not bother at all! If you purchased this book while logged in to your account, simply re-download it from the Downloads section of your profile on the KLP website. The original download link in your order confirmation email should also work. If you don’t have an account and haven’t kept the original email, create an account and then contact me, and we’ll get it sorted out. In other news, we’re making some good progress with our next title, Building the Italeri CF-104 Starfighter in 1/32 Scale, by Chuck Sawyer, though I do hate to confess that we’re behind schedule at the moment. All going well, however, it should be ready well before the end of next month. To stay tuned for further news and updates, simply subscribe to our blog via email, and you’ll get all the latest in your in-box as it happens. More news soon! Kev
  10. Today marks an important turning point in the drawn-out saga that has been our recent house move, as it sees me easing back into the hot seat at KLP Publishing for the first time since taking up residence in the new digs. I can’t say that we’re fully settled in just yet, but we can at least see some light at the end of the tunnel now! Most importantly, the hobby room is approaching a state of readiness: Perhaps I can finally settle down and build some models now! (In the top right section of the photo, you can see the new LED panel studio lights I’ll be using for photography from now on, replacing my bulky tripod-mounted soft boxes.) “But Kev, you mentioned a sale?” Ah, yes. To celebrate surviving the move and finally getting back to business, we’re having a 20% off sale for the duration of this week, running from Monday, 28 February, through to Sunday, 6 March. Just use the coupon code backtobusiness at checkout to receive 20% off the value of your cart. That coupon code again: backtobusiness And the link to our store: https://www.klp.com.au/shop/ I’m really looking forward to getting back into the swing of things, and bringing some fantastic new titles to fruition this year. To stay tuned to all the updates and announcements, you can subscribe to our blog to receive email notifications. Kev
  11. Over on my website, I've published an article looking ahead to what's in store for KLP Publishing in 2022, including a sneak peek at some of our upcoming titles. Rather than reproduce that article, here, I'll just post the link to the original blog post for brevity's sake: https://www.klp.com.au/2021/12/20/klp-in-2022/ And for those of you who celebrate Christmas, my best wishes for the holiday season! Kev
  12. It should be, John. The pricing structure is loosely based on page count (obviously enough), and our largest title (567 pages) is only 22 Australian dollars. This one will definitely come in under that, and so is more likely to be in the $16 range - though that's not a guarantee or promise, of course! Kev
  13. I’m pleased to announce that we’ve just launched our end-of-year Christmas sale! By using the coupon code XMAS21 at checkout, you’ll receive 20% off the total value of your shopping cart. The sale runs until midnight on Christmas eve, December 24, so head on over to our webstore and grab yourselves a bargain! https://www.klp.com.au/shop/ Kev
  14. I’m pleased to announce that our next title will be Building the Italeri CF-104 Starfighter in 1/32 Scale, by Chuck Sawyer. Those of you who are familiar with Chuck’s work, or purchased his previous KLP book, Building the Special Hobby Tempest Mk V in 1/32 Scale, will know what to expect from this book: a forensic examination of the kit, combined with clear and detailed notes on how to get the best out of it. Along with Chuck’s tremendous build, the book will also include a walkaround, by Gord McTaggart, of the CF-104 that currently resides at The Military Museum in Calgary Alberta, Canada. This comprises more than 100 photos! Our usual appendices featuring aftermarket and reference items will also make their customary appearance. The book is in the initial stages of development, but we’re hoping to be able to release it by the end of January. Stay tuned for more information as it comes to hand! The best way to do this is to subscribe to our blog, so that you’ll be notified by email whenever there’s a new post. Kev
