Do you think Chinese tanks and models are not interesting??

Wait to see this book … Until now is the most complete, detailed and exhaustive study about PLA for mod- elers ever done.

This book is not only having historians in mind but also for modelers and readers that can be interested to know something more about the Chinese army power. After reading this book many modelers will have much more interest in building a Chinese vehicle as next model.

Through its pages we will discover not only the power and main weapons of the Chinese PLA since its origins, but also the way to paint them, showing different techniques and camouflages for the Chinese vehicles The kits which appear in this book, belong to the main Chinese brands, and makes this book the perfect guide not only for modelers and enthusiasts of Chinese tanks and its strange and exotic camouflages but also for any modelers that want to have a reference book.

Modelers and historians like Adam Wilder, Kristof Pulinks, Lukasz Orczyyc-Musialek, Lester Plaskitt, Sven Frich, Zach Sex, Gordon Arthur, Lei Xu, Verlag Jochen,Chris Jerret, Oscar Ebrí, Brian Murdoch or David Bocquelet give us an idea of the quality of this publication that until now is the most complete, detailed and exhaustive study about PLA for modelers ever done.

    The description given of this book is pretty much accurate – information of the fighting vehicles of the inscrutable Chinese armed forces has always been thinly spread over several publications in the past, and this book brings much of it together inside a single cover. Histories are a little ‘potted’, but most of the important information on vehicle design and development is present. Of course, coming from AK-Interactive, there is much emphasis on colour – the book is full colour from front to back, the photographs and artwork really demonstrating the variety (and recent complexity) of camouflage schemes used by the PLA. A good percentage of the book is given over to a variety of model kits (all 1/35 scale – I am afraid to disappoint some ‘braille-scalers’) with the emphasis again on paint finishing (and no, they are not all exclusively AK-Interactive products used, though they are in the majority, obviously!). Techniques for producing ‘digital camouflage’ are also given in great detail.
    If I were to nit-pick, my only comment would be the absence of captions to a small number of the photographs – for example, are the ZBD 09 Snow Leopards pictured in the centre of page 93 the ‘Command’ version referred to in the text? Oh, and the model of the PPL-05 featured appears to be that produced by Hobby Boss I think (the text is silent here also).
    Overall, not the last book on Chinese ground force power you will ever need, but still a most useful tome for modeller and armour enthusiast alike (and a colourful one to boot!)
