Format: Paperback
Can't beat the price. Covers the basics on just about every aspect of automotive modeling. I recently started building again and this book has definitely helped. Starts off with tools you'll need to start building. Information on detailing engines and chassis(s),interior(s), exteriors, tires, etc. Discusses painting techniques for detailing and exterior finishes. I highly recommend this book if you are starting in the hobby or even if you've been building for years. I guarantee you will learn a new trick.

This book covers the basics very well, and actually has some more advanced topics too. The content is well written and the pictures are excellent. It covers everything from start to finish. I looked for a book specific to plastic aircraft models, but this book does the trick and applies to the basics for all plastic models.

I bought this book as a way to get back into the hobby of modeling. It's been a long time, and I felt I needed to read and prepare myself, if I want to start building and creating again.

This book is great for a novice like me after being out of the hobby since I built glue bombs in the early '70's. I liked the book so much I ordered another book of Mr. Covert's. I am encouraged that, with lots of practice, I can do superb builds while enjoying my semi-retirement.

Very good for the beginning modeler. An older book but still relevant. Recommended.
