AK Interactive have released the first items in a new series of dedicated model railroad products. A comprehensive modeling guide is accompanied by two weathering sets.
Trainspotting
If trains and railway modelling are your passion or you just love quality scale modelling you can’t miss this book with the usual AK’s quality display plus Marklin’s input. A handbook that will possibly become a cult book for scale railway modelers in the next years. A new approach for an instructional book and the for the way techniques are displayed to beginners and advanced modellers.

The book is structured in three main blocks. The first part contains the different techniques and materials we have at our disposal in order to be able to represent as many different effects as it is necessary.

The second block walks us through a greatly visual and detailed description of the different processes and materials involved in representing these effects on different types of locomotives and wagons. A variety of techniques and work carried out by some of the best European and American modellers.

On the third section we will see how to weather railway buildings and rail station structures and their elements. This goes together with a chapter full of real reference pictures of trains from around the world that will really delight the reader and push many to start with the hobby.

208 pages. Available in English and Spanish editions. Price: 42,00 €
