Packed with practical tips and advice, Creating the Rural Scene explains the various techniques and materials that will help any modeller produce convincing models of the rural scene. It examines the history and development of the countryside, villages and infrastructure and covers rural industries. It demonstrates techniques for modelling farm buildings, machinery, vehicles and livestock and gives practical advice to modelling windmills and watermills. There are a selection of scenic projects included with step-by-step guidance and reference photographs. The book presents a total modelling project showing how to make a three-dimensional model inspired by John Constable's The Hay Wain.


About the Author

David Wright's interest in the TT goes back over fifty years to the era when the Italian machines of Gilera and MV Agusta dominated the races in the hands of riders like Geoff Duke, John Surtees and Carlo Ubbiali. A constant follower of Island racing ever since, he greatly admires the performances of today's TT-winning machines from Japan and the riders who have the courage and talent to race over the famous Mountain Course. David is the author of several books including Vincent - The Complete Story and 100 Years of the Isle of Man TT, both published by Crowood.
