Building Large Scale SCI-FI & Fantasy Models

Build Guide Series No.9

KLP Publishing




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. In a change from their previous titles this one does not concentrate on one aircraft but on 8 builds across the Sci-fi and Fantasy genre. 


The eight builds are;

  • Droids
  • Hulk
  • Lost In Space
  • Mars Attacks
  • The Time Machine
  • Moon Base
  • Tournament Challenge 





The Book is a distillation of articles the Author Jason Gares wrote for the now gone Sci-fi and Fantasy Modeller Magazine. Given this book covers 8 builds it is KLPs largest to date with 473 pages. Each of the 8 builds articles details the building of the models, followed by their painting and weathering. As this is not a "sponsored" publication the author uses the products he has seen as the best fit at the time for his work. Techniques for building bases are also included with the individual builds. 





This is the type of publication that the new digital format is made for, multiple builds on a single Genre packed with detail and photos. This is clearly a book written by a modeller 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. Recommended.
