The Weathering Magazine is the only magazine devoted entirely to the painting and weathering techniques of scale models and figures. In this issue, we will focus on an unusual topic for a scale modeling magazine – pre-assembled Die-Cast and plastic models available in an endless variety of intriguing subjects for painting and weathering.
We will show you simple tricks and more complex techniques used when working on metal or plastic pre-assembled replicas and point out the most common correctable defects found with this type of model and explain the simple ways to easily correct visible screws or a thick layer of factory lacquer. We indicate which techniques will be most appropriate for weathering the unique features of a workable H0 locomotive, a caterpillar tractor, or a collectible Star Wars figure. In addition, we will show you how to bring a rally car or a die-cast excavator to life and how to change a small toy bus into a realistic miniature. We will transform a shiny fire engine into an abandoned scrap-yard vehicle and paint a small pre-assembled aircraft to look like a high-end scale model kit. And of course, much more! As always, The Weathering Magazine explains with detailed “step by step” articles, how to perform every technique as illustrated through high quality photos and concise descriptions by some of the finest modelers from around the world. This highly useful and much anticipated issue of TWM is a collectible resource packed with useful techniques and inspiration for every modeler.
