Inside, Martin Hughes explains in detail how to create rust, mould and decay on a 1:24 scale Volkswagen Beetle and Vincenzo Lanna explains how to paint a German camouflage pattern on a captured Russian tank KV-1 in using an airbrush and a brush. Alessandro Gobbi explains in detail the ‘non metallic metal’ painting method he uses with step-by-step photographs. Christos Katselos also paints a 1:24 scale fantasy figure in a scenic setting.

Though no railway subjects are featured in this issue, all the techniques demonstrated can be directly transferred to model figures, layout vehicles and locomotives and rolling stock.
