It is a structure guide principally, but it briefly covers foliage. It could have omitted that section, but even there it provided me with some ideas that I hadn't considered. If it had any faults - and I don't think it does - it is that some sections are brief since it is so comprehensive. Saying that, where it is brief, it provides sufficient coverage to allow the reader to explore the topic in more detail on their own. (The brass etching section is a good example.)
One possible difficulty is that Mr. Neat uses Kappa foam for a variety of projects, and it is impossible to obtain Kappa foam from what I can determine. And I have looked hard for it! :) But other materials can be substituted depending on the project if the modeler is familiar with materials such as balsa foam for example.
If you are a professional model maker it is a MUST have. If you're a hobbyist it's a very strong recommendation. It might be more than you were looking for, but you will never be wondering about how to tackle a project with this book by your side.
I really can't say enough about it. I have other reference materials on my shelf, but no other compares to this book. Kudos to Mr. Neat for providing such an outstanding book.
