On Target No.1 German Tiger Tanks
44 page book.
175+ Full color and black & white photographs
Although this book deals specifically with modeling the infamous, but highly popular, German Tiger tank, it is nevertheless a testimony to the very high modeling skills which launched the career of the author, Francois Verlinden. In these pages can be seen some of the most impressive military scale modeling that has ever been published, all done by scratch at a time when there was little or no modeling aftermarket from which to obtain the now very common detail parts necessary to achieve such high levels of realism. The book begins by giving a short, but detailed, history of the development of the ubiquitous Tiger tanks. Each chapter is dedicated to a different modeling project of a different version of the Tiger, and is supplemented by a full range of photographs of the actual vehicle being modeled. This incredible book fills many needs, both as a modeling guide and as a general reference work on the Tiger. Many helpful modeling tips and techniques abound, and should not be missed by any modeler, novice or advanced. It also serves the historian and military enthusiast very admirably.
