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. They have since done titles on the Bird Dog, Spitfire XIVe, AEG G.IV Late, FW 189,  He 219P-51 and Ki-45. Their latest title tackles building Special Hobby's 1/32 Tempest Mk.V. This was done by modeller Chuck Sawyer. Here the build looks at some of the aftermarket that is available for the kit . As well as this a virtual review of the different SH kits are covered.  The author looks at Airscale cockpit decals, Barracuda up grades including the whole nose section. Tutorials are included for decanting aerosol paints, masking & painting markings, salt weathering, and the use of HGW wet transfers Also of use to the modeller is appendices covering Aftermarket, and reference work available for the kit.

Conclusion

This is the type of publication that the new digital format is made for. If you want a book for a specific build having a digital publication saves you space on your bookshelves. 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, many more than you would get in a printed publication. Highly recommended.
