Volume 4

After laying out many scale modeler’s basic building techniques in his earlier videos, Dave Platt moves into more specialized areas.

By deliberately choosing the most complicated and challenging subject he could think of, Dave expected, and encountered, difficult problems and shows us how to meet them head-on.

With a list of hitherto unrevealed methods , and a willingness to try something else when the first plan falls short , we learn that anything can be achieved by going about it with care and enthusiasm.

Dave Platt’s response to the challenge posed by the Toledo Weak Signals provides fresh and fertile ground galore. The Advanced Building Techniques series chronicles a large number of new aspects of scale modeling, including :
