About the Author

A leading exponent of scale models with this approach was the late Eric Coates. For many years no event for this type of model was complete without his presence; he was a successful competitor & a pathfinder in the development of greater scale accuracy. His series of articles in Aeromodeller magazine in the early 1970s is still regarded as the classic exposition on the subject, as relevant today as when first written. They offer advice on choice of prototype, construction, covering, finishing and detailing, plus trimming and flying - up to competition standard if required. The articles have been brought together in this book for the first time, updated and revised by technical writer Vic Smeed.
