Modeling

Paper Panzer: Prototypes and What If Tanks

Paper Panzer: Prototypes and What if Tanks Some modelers are increasingly interested in exploring new fields, and allowing themselves some artistic license. This type of vehicle is becoming increasingly important among the many brands for launching news and information on new releases. There has been a boom in this type of modeling, and every time there is a new release, it awakens more curiosity among modelers around the world. This book offers original ideas to address such alternative paper projects. We will see where the concept of Paper Panzers comes from and its differences with the what-if models, besides inspiring us with profiles of all kinds. It will feature many of the best modelers in the world using the present techniques and will show us how to make some of these vehicles and will leave nothing different behind. $42.00 USD
