Synopsis: This book provides a comprehensive guide to the use of plastics in the many and varied fields of modelling. Various types and forms of plastics are described and their useful characteristics, strengths and weaknesses are detailed. This book is well illustrated with informative line drawings, instructive photographs and amusing cartoons.

About the Author: Alex Weiss has been aeromodelling for half a century and has built more than fifty radio-controlled models of which 28 were original designs and 14 were published in RCM&E or Radio Modeller magazines. As well as monoplanes and a biplane, the list includes an autogyro, canards and deltas. He has also written magazine articles on subjects as diverse as four stroke engines and flutter. The author first went solo in a Chipmunk with his University Air Squadron at Tangmere and his early adult life was spent as an RAF pilot, flying Jet Provosts, Vampires and Hunters, including three years as a qualified flying instructor. Much of his professional experience has been dedicated to the complex subject of teaching people to fly radio controlled models.

Book Description Special Interest Model Books, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A comprehensive guide to the use of plastics in the many and varied fields of modelling. This book describes the various types and forms of plastics and details their useful characteristics, strengths and weaknesses. It also explains how to source them, how to work with them when making models and examines their applications in each of the many and varied branches of modelling: flying model aircraft; rockets; model power boats, yachts and submarines; model cars; plastic kits; scratchbuilt models of aircraft, ships, spacecraft and cars; figures for aircraft, boats, cars, fantasy games, military modelling or railway layouts; buildings for dolls, railways or wargaming; railway locomotives and rolling stock (7.5 inch to N gauge); Model engineering models and tools; electronics. Well illustrated with informative line drawings, instructive photographs and amusing cartoons, the book is a mine of information which explains why you might choose, or prefer to substitute, plastics for the more commonly used materials such as wood and metal. Alex Weiss has first-hand experience both of working in many different areas of modelling and of using the majority of the materials described. He has packed a lifetime of working with plastics into this concise and practical book. Seller Inventory # AAJ9781854861702
