Publishers Description
Rockets and spacecraft were among the very first models made as commercial kits, and although never as numerous as aircraft, ships or road vehicles, the many kits produced over the years provide a fascinating niche in the world of model-making. The build-ups in this book reflect the current situation with spacecraft modelling; although there are still a number of conventional all-plastic kits available, there is also a growing range that uses more specialist materials, especially resins. The book explains the various techniques required when dealing with these non-traditional materials. Scale Spacecraft Modelling also covers scratch building and adaptation, the techniques needed to make those pristine models really dirty to match the ones you see in the movies, and the design and construction of realist dioramas and settings.

Can't go wrong with this one!  Jul 13, 2008
Mat really did a great job with this book. I fell back into modeling after about a 25 year layoff. This book goes throught he method of building many of the space models that you may want to purchase. I even emailed him some questions and he was kind enough to respond. I am going to check out his other books. I think he has a total of 10 or so out there.
Probably the best space - scifi model book out there  Jun 12, 2008
For one thing, this book is fairly modern. Mentioning everything from eBay, resin kits, to Google. So you know it's not something printed 15-20 years ago or out of date. It's packed full of clear well done COLOR photos. Matt covers model ships and vehicle subjects from Real Space to Sci-Fi. Including many kits long out of production.

The book has plenty of text to detail every build. Full of techniques and tips, things he's aquired working on real TV Series from Dr. Who to Blake's 7. His enthusiasm for building models is in every paragraph.

He covers all the topics, from printing decals, to vacuum-forming. The builds range from Scifi imaginary ships, to real craft, such as Gemini, Apollo, Spaceship One, and the Lunar Rover.

If you are going to get just one book on building Scifi or Real Space kits, that will take your modeling to the next level, this is the one to get. Highly recommended.
a must have  Apr 3, 2008
This was a book that was much better than I expected. I started modeling space back in the early sixties with Revell's 1/48 Mercury and Gemini. Mat's book covers everything old and new, from styrene plastic to resin and even paper models. His tips are invaluable. This book makes the difference between a so-so model and a real looker that captures people's attention. A must for the space modeler.
Scale Spacecraft   Jan 7, 2008
The book is OK but at a basic level. Anyone who models in plastic or wood will see the same tips and tricks here as any other basic modeling book....Nice for beginners...Andy
A Great Resource and How-To Guide  Jun 25, 2007
Modeling spacecraft, both historical and fictional, is a niche within the modeling world. This book speaks to those interested in that niche. It covers such diverse topics various modeling materials, scrounging to make what is desired from what is available, painting, decaling and, especially, sources for obscure materials and kits.

This is dedicated primarily to static models and not the flying ones but can be useful for the latter crowd as well.

It is a British publication but is applicable for all.
