By Michael Benolkin
|Date of Review||April 2004||Title||Modelling the Matilda Infantry Tank|
|Author||Mark Bannerman||Publisher||Osprey Publishing|
|Format||82 pages, softbound||MSRP (USD)||$17.95|
In this fifth installment of Osprey's modeling series, the Matilda tank is the subject of this detailed modelers reference. The title looks at versions of the full-scale Matilda throughout the book with nice color photography. These photos help to illustrate key features and/or details of the kit build-ups presented in this book.
Some of the projects included are:
- 1/76 A11 Matilda
- 1/76 Matilda Mk.III, Malta
- 1/35 Matilda Mk.IV, Australian
- 1/35 British Desert Matilda
- 1/35 German Matilda 'Oswald'
An excellent discussion of detailing, painting and weathering techniques is covered and illustrated with each project.
As with the previous titles in this series, a good reference is included for essential tools as well as available kit and aftermarket detail resources.
My sincere thanks to Motorbooks International for this review sample!
