Online publishing is now starting to find its way into the modelling community. KLP Publishing is one of the new online publishers, specialising in eBooks for the scale aircraft modelling community. Their debut title  Building Brick’s Sabre in 1/32 Scale: A Scale Tribute to K.J. "Brick" Bricknell  reviewed here has proved to be a success. This This 565-page eBook details Peter Castle‘s award-winning conversion of the HpH Models 1/18 Seafire 47 to represent a Spitfire XIVe—specifically, Race #80, as flown by James McArthur in the Tinnerman Air Races at Cleveland, Ohio, on September 4th 1949 One of the great aspects of digital publishing is the inclusion of a huge amount of pictures. Peter took this model to Scale Model World 2017 where he walked away with the top honour of Best In Show. Those of us who saw the model would have to agree with this.

Conclusion

This is the type of publication that the new digital format will embrace. The subject is not main stream enough for a traditional publication. This is clearly a book written by modellers for modellers. The text is clear and concise and the great selection of crisp pictures is welcome. Highly recommended.
