Essential reading: Auto Modelling Masterclass by Mat Irvine

This is such a terrific read that even if you don’t make car models, you’re still guaranteed to pick up some useful tips. However, here's a warning: set aside a few hours for relaxed droolworthy page-turning.

Mat Irvine is a renowned modeler, and currently maintains K-9, the robot dog from the BBC Doctor Who TV series, in fine fettle. In this book, Mat has gathered together decades of experience to give readers fact-packed text and hundreds of colour pictures, from his model collection.

Lovers of kit history are well catered for, as Mat has included photos of subjects going back half a century and more. My own favourites include some early Batmobile models, as well as many dioramas and conversions.
