Editorial Reviews

Review

"Osprey's Modelling series shows how advanced modelers use their knowledge, skills and expertise to create incredibly and correctly detailed models of all sorts... Each book discusses how a variety of model kits are used to make authentic looking WWII vehicles... If you are looking for books that provide the high detailing to take your miniatures to the next level, you should check these books out." -Michael Koznarsky, Historical Miniature Gamer (Issue 11)

"The variety of authors allows the reader to view a number of different styles and techniques, each arriving at a pleasing and impressive model... After reading it, you feel as if nothing in the modeling world is impossible to do. As such it will prove to be an inspirational book to all lovers of the Tiger I. Recommended." -Rob Baumgartner, missing-lynx.com (July 2007)

"This all results in another superlative book in the Osprey Modelling series and one can see why these books are so popular." -Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (July 2007)

"The book is superbly compiled from the work of five different authors and tied together in a logical and easily-understandable manner by the Editor...The first AFV Modeling title in several months from Osprey Publishing. Like the other books in the series, this promises to be an invaluable source of both inspiration and some highly applicable techniques." -Jim Rae, Armorama (August 2007)

I own nearly every one of the Modelling Manual titles produced because I love the work presented, the inspiration I gain, and there are always great tips and ideas to skim from each work. However, the small size severely limits photo size and text amount, thus minimizing instead of maximizing the potential of this series. This title in particular uses the most recent kit releases, aftermarket accessories, and latest info regarding the Tiger I tank. Limited in scope and detail by the overly strict Osprey format, this is otherwise an excellent session on how to super detail the 1/35 Dragon Tiger I kits. While I love David Parker's Tamiya 1/16 version (and nothing against his superb piece), I found it an odd addition from a scale modelling perspective and was disappointed to not see any of the new 1/48 kits attempted or a rework of the older 1/35 Tamiya kit (which still occupy a large portion of modeler's shelves). With Alex Clark's equally impressive Tiger in 1/72 title I guess the 1/48 guys are out of luck. With that said, however, any of these techniques and ideas can be easily applied across any scale and kit.

I am finding more and more today as I build my own models that these manuals are best used in conjunction with more dedicated reference like the Actung Panzer series from Japan or "The Modeler's Guide to the Tiger Tank" from Ampersand Pub., which go much, much further into the specific details and their relative time tables regarding each variant. The real strength of these Osprey titles is that it shows the modeler to a good extent what is needed to achieve the best in accuracy and detail and this is born true with this Tiger I title.

this little book. Edmundson is one of my favorite armor modeling authors. He is too focused on accuracy of detail for my building philosophy, but that does not detract from the appreciation of his awesome builds, painting and WAD (weathering, abuse, damage) he represents on his vehicles. I've been inspired by his published works and recommend them to you highly. There are insights and techniques to be had with this volume, and that alone is worth the price (not to mention the pictures).

This book is for specific machines, which is all well and good if you want to build a specific tank. There is some information which can be applied to any Tiger model. There should be more detailed informationon the painting techniques. A useful book for novice modellers, probably not as much for more experienced hobbyists, as there is a lot of aftermarket stuff shown. You also need an airbrush, and air supply to follow the directions.

Owning more than my share of the Osprey Modelling series, this is one of their better efforts. Edmundson is a master modeler and the various projects detailed in this book are both inspiring and instructional. A must-have for armor modelers out there.

The Tiger I has always been a personal favorite of mine ever since reading my Sergeant Rock comic books as a kid in the 60`s. This book really motivated me to get back into models again.
