    I do add detail about oils & other mediums I use Jaybo.
    Note though I use these for various effects & textures, like leathers, furs and metals not specifically for uniforms.
    I’ve tried to include lots of other info that make this more of a multipurpose book for modelling.

    Here’s another taster Nap et al.
    Sketches in my book help explain tips & uniform details.
    Inspired by ’Stan Catchpole’ (Bryan Fosten) & Bill Donnelly’s WW1 articles in late 1980’s Military Modelling.

    Oh you tease!

    I still have three Historex catalogues from the 70s and regularly refer to Bryan's drawings in those.

    Expect a few more days delay mate.
    Crowood will advise actual release.
    We can only sit patiently.

    Mike, just received my copy yesterday evening, (post was later than usual) I was able to get a better look today and it’s Fantastic! I especially like the inclusion of historical re-enactors that give a, “real world” view of uniforms and environments. And I am a big fan of being able to have the book open at the bench for easier referencing. This is truly a must have book for WW1 enthusiasts.

    Tom
