Next Level: Perfection – Taking 1/72 Scale to the Limit – MIG6122
Currently, 1/72 is one of the most popular modelling scales, and there is a large range of subjects available, while space and time constraints are minimal in comparison to larger scales. Sergey Golikov demonstrates that ‘Braille’ models can reach the level of detailing and realism offered in larger scales. This talented Russian modeller shows how to take these little models to the next level, infusing them with the detail and realism typically found on 1/35 models. This title is an essential read for small-scale enthusiasts and a comprehensive guide to assembly, detailing, conversions, and the most realistic painting techniques suited to this scale. With techniques completely new to the modelling scene, this book is ideal for any modeller wishing to improve and raise their skills to the next level.
The book features ten new 1/72 models. A wide range of subjects and variables are covered including climate and weather conditions, and theatres of war from North Africa to Northern Europe. Each model is unique, showing weathering techniques specifically tailored to each subject. Additionally, many of the models have been detailed and customized with scratch-built parts or aftermarket sets. Distinct eras are visited including WWII, modern conflicts, Panzerwaffe 46 what-if scenarios, and rusted/abandoned vehicles. This dynamic book truly has something for every modeller. You will also find a gallery of inspiration featuring Sergey’s works from the past five years.
