The tanks and other armored fighting vehicles of the United States Forces in World War II have always been some of the most popular subjects for scale modellers. Now, renowned modeller and AFV expert, Steven J Zaloga, presents the definitive guide to modelling these famous fighting vehicles. Based around four building projects, Steven presents all the techniques necessary to get a great finish on a model, including super-detailing, building a resin model, scratch building, and painting & markings. These step-by-step guides will be enhanced by numerous photographs specially shot form Steven's personal collection of US WWII armour, and will aid in obtaining the most realistic results on a finished project.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Written by prolific author, historian, and modeler Steve Zaloga, this book is a smorgasbord of Mr. Zaloga's tips, techniques, creative ideas and concepts, with valuable historical background liberally sprinkled though the book like nuggets of gold. In addition to all of the terrific information throughout the book, a bonus of sorts are the many nicely reproduced photos of Mr. Zaloga'sincredible body of work." - Chuck Aleshire, "AMPS" (October 2009)
"The book is well suited for beginners and even has plenty to offer old dogs like me... There is not alot of wasted space on these pages. The book is content rich and enjoyable throughout. Zaloga s work is also quite good and interesting to look at and captured well in the book s many photos...The book is also useful to modelers who don t build US armor since many of Zaloga s techniques are applicable even to other armor subjects... [The] book is so chock full of ideas and useful information that even an old cheapie like me would shell out for a copy. So would I recommend buying this book? Absolutely." -Bart Cusamano, "IPMS/USA "(December 2009)
"First off, this one is hardbound and done so with a sort of ring binding that allows the pages to lay flat once the book is opened... Another interesting feature is that the left side pages are color coded to match color guides to the various chapters. Makes it easy to find what you are seeking in this manner.You would expect a book like this to be full of large, clear, color images with easy to read captions to help out while you duplicate some skill and that is exactly what you get with no more than three large images per page. You would also expect the book to cover as many different aspects of the genre as it could and that it does quite admirably with everything from working with resin and photo-etch to painting and detailing bases. It is all here under one cover." -Scott Van Aken, "Modeling Madness/modelingmadness.com "(December 2009)
