Images of the completed Damaged Tower House - one of the models to feature in book three
I have agreed to exhibit at the Alumwell or WMMS on Sunday, March 12th 2017 - see this post. Having made this decision it then followed that I would like to have Dampfpanzerwagon Guide No 3 - Models for Wargamers published and ready for sale by this date.
Over the last month I have been working every hour I have spare to get the images and text ready for proof-reading and editing. I can now announce that the text and images are now completed and within the next week, I will be passing the files over to my Daughter, Holly who has once again agreed to do the editing and get the book ready for publication.
Hopefully I will have more details very soon, but for now this is the plan for Book Three - Dampfpanzerwagon Guide No 3;
Over 110 pages
8 model based chapters
Approximately 40,000 words
Approximately 300 full colour images
My plan is to produce Book Three in limited numbers with the first 100 books being signed and numbered, as the previous two books.
I would expect the cost to be a little higher than the earlier two and postage to be about 10% - 12% higher. But as stated above, more details very soon.

Sue and I were in Stratford earlier today and on our return home we stopped in Alcester. Our plan was to pop in to one of our favourite restaurants and have a late lunch, but in the end we drove back to Droitwich and had tea at home.
Here are some images of a timber framed house in Alcester, I thought it was worth recording as the timbers look original.
This house was across the road from it and again, I thought it was worth recording.
Finally we have the back of a larger structure - these images were taken from the Waitrose carpark in Droitwich. I particularly like the Ochre colour which looked like it had recently been repainted.

I have at least one short story ear-marked for publication this year and will be reporting on this and others throughout December.
Good luck Craig, I'm sure it will be another great year of content.

Here is my first report from IPMS 2016 - Scale Model World, Telford and I have chosen jets or aircraft from what I believe to be the golden age - post WWII to the 1970's. These are aircraft of my youth and in most cases aircraft that I have modelled. I hope you enjoy them.
