About this title

Synopsis:

This quiet hobby has only recently grown fast and furiously in many parts of the world and many of the new aficionados are young and have not yet had time to acquire much knowledge of the background to the hobby or the model makers, for instance, who have made the pastime practicable. Another recent factor is the comparatively new advent of two completely new schools of model soldier enthusiasts: the converters, and the private makers or "freelancers." The skill they display in reassembling and painting make them an important influence on the scene. John Garratt begins by filling in the comparatively early background, including the emergence of "the masters," and then goes on to the new men in the model making world, covering the United States as well as Europe.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
