Scale Modelling Road and Track presents nine build projects for all levels, from experienced car and bike modellers, to the novice or those considering entering this genre for the very first time.

The build articles involve kits from various manufacturers, such as Revell, Airfix, Ebbro and Hasegawa, along with more boutique firms such as Model Factory Hiro. A great many techniques, hints and tips are imparted by auto modelling specialists from the Airfix Model World team, and the vehicles themselves represent road-going supercars, Formula 1, Group C and vintage subjects. Skills such as how to apply ‘candy’ paint finishes, conversion work, detailing and more are all covered. 

There are also walk-round photos, history text and a dedicated listing of manufacturers of kits, aftermarket products, decals and other items. It’s an unmissable publication for any car modeller, no matter what the skill level.
