Scale Modelling Manual Vol.4 IS OUT!

    This is the fourth Manual in our new series about Scale Modelling where our aim is to bring a lot of concentrated information about painting and general modelling techniques for all modellers at a competitive retail price.

    This particular issue will cover in depth the construction of a diorama based on wartime photos and events. The main theme is a detachment of German Forces from Kampfgruppe Hansen 1st SS Panzer Division at Poteau on 18th December 1944 - two days into the Battle of the Bulge - after setting up an Ambush of an American convoy of the 14th Cavalry Group. This big operation by the German Forces, known as Ardennes Offensive, was the last in such a large scale before the end of War. This book includes 60 high quality photos, 30 of which are in-progress, and a very detailed text, so the reader can easily follow the whole procedure in detail from start to finish. The author included all the sets, accessories, and paint codes used to add all the details to the diorama as well as the full interior of the Tamiya M8 armoured car.

    The author of this Super Diorama is the well-known master modeller Lieven Terryn from Belgium. Lieven was the author of our 1st Scale Modelling Manual, that included the ‘Siege of Tobruk 1941’, a Super Diorama in detail and an SBS Figure Painting with oil colours of an Alpine Miniatures Leutnant of the 8th Panzer Regiment in Libya 1941, and an article by Mr Black’s Team on relevantacrylic colour sets for DAK uniforms and how to use them.

    On the morning of 18th December 1944, two days into the Battle of the Bulge, an American convoy of the 14th Cavalry Group was ambushed by SS-Kampfgruppe Hansen, 1st SS-Panzer Division, Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler, near the small Belgian village of Poteau. KG Hansen achieved complete surprise and the American Troops had to abandon their vehicles and retreat to the village. Shortly after the attack some Waffen SS kriegsberichter arrived and took some staged and posed shots. Later the undeveloped film fell into American hands when a dispatch rider was captured. The captured German kriegsberichter film footage from the action is some of the most well-known footage from the entire War and has featured in countless documentaries whereas stills from the film have been published in countless books. More information and orders: www.mrblackpublications.com, or from your favourite dealer or shop.
