Panzer Aces Number 49

Panzer Aces Number 49 Book Review

By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review August 2015 Title Panzer Aces Number 49
Author Multiple Publisher Accion Press Modelismo
Published 2015 ISBN -
Format 64 pages, softbound MSRP (Euro) 11.00€


Here is the latest from Accion Press Modelismo - Issue 49 of Panzer Aces. This is their World War I special edition with exclusive coverage of several famous WWI tanks. The in-depth build, painting and weathering articles in this issue include:

  • A7V Sturmpanzerwagen - 1/35 Tauro update
  • Saint Chamond - 1/35 diorama
  • Saint Chamond 'Walkaround'
  • Mk.IV Male - 1/35 w/base
  • CA1 Schneider - 1/48 diorama

As usual, these are all great reference articles on how to take a given kit and make it better or transform it into some subject you've always wanted to do. The expansion into ground cover helps blend your subject into the surrounding environment. These articles walk you through the assembly and modification process including the use of aftermarket items to achieve specific goals, as well as how to paint, weather, and finish the model into a masterpiece.

These Panzer Aces series are must-have references for the armor modeler, whether you're a novice or a master, these issues provide the clear visual how-to techniques which can teach or enhance your own skills. What is also enjoyable with these titles is that they are some of the few left that are not full of advertisements, only the inside cover and rear cover carry ads, the rest is all golden content. You're going to want this in your library!

Definitely recommended!

My sincere thanks to Accion Press for this review sample!
