From the publisher:
Luis Lopez Ruiz is a renowned Spanish modeler, also well known to Steelmasters magazine's readers where his work has been featured on a regular basis. This talented modeler spent the last several years developing and improving his own technique, inspired by the zenithal painting effect, used to achieve a stunning color finish on his military scale models.
This new book explains, through detailed step by step photos, how to give your model the perfect enhancements of contrast and a eye catching look. A variety of materials are used, black and white priming technique and different type of weathering are also presented. Five examples of AFV's, from WWII to modern era, are illustrated with many photos. The understanding and the mastery of these methods and related techniques are essential to add a striking realism to military vehicles of WWII and modern era. A gallery of finished scale models completes this highly recommended book for modelers.
Much more than a new technique, this book offers you a novel approach to AFV painting. The black and white technique is the way to achieve contrasts and many visual effects (dirt, worn and faded surfaces) prior to applying the base color !
