Kundrecensioner, inklusive stjärnrecensioner av produkter, hjälper kunder att lära sig mer om produkten och avgöra om det är rätt produkt för dem.
Vi använder inte ett enkelt medelvärde för att beräkna den totala stjärnrecensionen och den procentuella fördelningen per stjärna. Istället tar vårt system hänsyn till saker som till exempel hur nyligen en recension har gjorts och om recensenten köpte artikeln på Amazon. Det analyserar också recensioner för att verifiera deras trovärdighet.
I bought this book as I was looking for a guide to building scenery just like the title says. There are German language books but the ones I found are dated and have not been revised for years. Having read this one here I personally see it more as a good read and compulsive tutorial about everything you need to know to make good scenery, but looking for a specific subject you have to browse through the pages to the right chapter. I was initially irritated when a chapter started about track ballasting, wondering where the track laying or electrics are, but that is the point. The book is about scenery and thats that. Do not expect a compendium on building a model railroad. Fair enough, it''s what it says on the title page.
Having built a very large layout and startiung with a new one I still discovered new knowledge so I recommend this book not only for beginners but an experienced modeller will also find his fair share in this. The only critisism I have is, I wish someone would write something somewhere sometime about how to take care of your scenery when it gets dusty, old or loses it's color.
Apart from that I highly recommend this book for anyone who is into building model railroad layouts. Its fun, it has great pictures and good explanations.
This is far from the first scenery book from Model Railroader magazine's publisher, Kalmbach Media, but author Kathy Millatt brings a refreshing look at the subject matter.
Millatt's style, honed on her YouTube channel, is one of teaching by experimentation, often using minimal sized dioramas as her sandbox, and showing her audience what works AND what doesn't. It's a very Bob Ross style of encouragement, to novice and old-timer alike, to not be afraid to think outside the box and try new things.
In "Building Realistic Model Railroad Scenery," Millatt provides an amplified level of encouragement with a rich tapestry of examples from her own work, as well as several other well-known modelers - including retired hobby manufacturer George Sellios, author Pelle Søeborg, and YouTube scenery sensation Martin "of Sweden" Tärnrot, among many others.
Because of the aforementioned teaching style and amazing examples in book, I strongly recommend this book to any and all hobbyists - and professionals - who need to build realistic scenery. Though aimed at model railroading, this material easily translates to military modeling, Warhammer 40k bases, dioramas, etc.
Kathy Millatt did not disappoint with this reference book, and I expect it to live on my workbench more than in my bookcase in the coming years. BRAVA, Kathy!
Tengo muchos libros de este editor y en cuanto a escenografia, este es sin duda el mejor. Muchas y buenas fotos, tecnicas, trucos y no solo de la autora sino con ejemplos de otros modelistas. Muy bueno, lo recomiendo sin duda. Es tan bueno que solo echo en falta algunas fotos mas grandes aunque hubiese implicado hacer dos libros.
I'm a fan of Kathy's and love her work. The book she wrote is fantastic as are the photos. What I did notice was the poor physical quality of the book. Recently I bought Thomas Klimoski's book Building the Right Sized Layout and noticed the different in publisher quality. Thomas' book has a heavy duty paper cover, thicker pages and more glossy print. Much what I would suspect on a book like this. The publisher Kalmbach Media gave Kathy's book a cheap cover with fuzzy front page photo and thin, non-glossy pages. Most of the photographs were not high quality. Certainly get this book! Its the best scenery book I've seen since the legendary Dave Frary's book How To Build Realistic Model Railroad Scenery. Kathy's work is amazing! So are her videos. Highly recommend....just expect it not to last.
