Super Model International Vol II

Super Model International Vol II Review

By David L. Veres

Date of Review February 2013 Title Super Model International Vol II
Author Przemyslaw Szymczyk, Lukasz Kapelski, Rafal Bulanda, Lukasz Orczyc-Musialek Publisher Kagero
Published 2013 ISBN 9788362878406
Format 80 pages, softbound MSRP (USD) $15.95


The second issue of Kagero's terrific Super Model International magazine focuses exclusively on 1:35 military vehicles:

  • BMW R75 motorcycle from MASTER BOX
  • Jagdpanther from DML
  • Su-122-54 scratchbuild with SKIFF kit details
  • T-55 from TAMIYA

Feature detail total projects from start to finish.  And subsections showcase specific techniques.  Sidebars, for instance, cover figure painting, light and shade effects, color modulation and oil washes.

Workmanship is uniformly exceptional.  And superb color photography brilliantly illumines everything.  A fan of the legendary Soviet T-54/T-55 tanks, I especially enjoyed the Soviet Su-122-54 assault gun and Serb T-55 coverage.  Outstanding!

Kagero!  Captions, please!  Seas of article text drown vital tips and techniques.  And I frequently lost my place moving back and forth between features and photos.

Gripe aside, this excellent edition will definitely motivate your modeling muse!
