Default The Scale Hornet

Many of you have been waiting (somewhat) patiently for this book to come to fruition. After a couple years of hard work, Pete 'Pig' Fleischmann has completed his follow-up to The Scale Viper from a few years back. Like he did with the Viper book, Pig has enlisted the help of several of the master modelers from around the world to show tips, tricks, and techniques for creating the perfect model of the Hornet & Super Hornet. As an added bonus, there are also chapters on how to photograph your models, how to build an in-flight display, and a Hornet FAQ.

The printer has sent me three advance copies and the remainder of the shipment should arrive here by early December. This book is a bit larger than the Scale Viper, weighing in at 152 pages. Retail price will be $34.95.

Great job, Pig!!

Approximately one arm and one leg. Maybe your first born child, too.

I know this book has been a huge effort so I'm really happy for you and Pete. I'm sure it will be another hit!

I recieved in the mail today my advanced copy of the Scale Hornet Modelers Guide today and I've got to say if any of you are Hornet fans, this book is for sure for you. The book is great and a must buy. I've only built one F-18, but with this book another one is a for sure! Great job Pete and Jake.

I was one of the lucky winners of the three early books Jake had and I can tell you it's one of the best modeling books I've seen. The quality of the builds are simply superb! Well worth getting a copy.

Thanks, Rob!!

Preorders are just rushing in. I'm really impressed with Pig's work (as always), but I'm still somewhat surprised at the response this book is getting.

The books will be here Wednesday afternoon, and I'll start shipping them as soon as I unpack the pallets. Many of you will get them before Christmas, but many of you won't. I'll do my best, though.

Thanks guys!

Can books and stickers be combined from the two different websites into one shipment?
