It’s packed with hints and tips for scenic structure modeling, track laying, wiring, and extra detailing.

Chris Ellis has been a steam and model railway enthusiast since his school days. He has nearly fifty years of experience as a writer and editor, having started out in the early 1960s as editor of Airfix Magazine. In 1980 he founded Model Trains, which he continues to edit today as Model Trains International. Chris Ellis has also written numerous railway and scenic modelling books along with articles on miltary, aviation and transport subjects.Review:
Excellent. There have been a number of books on specific modelling subjects but fewer general books on the subject. This book by Chris Ellis was first published in 2005 and was a sell-out; so, now we have the second edition. The author has many years of practical modelling experience under his belt and is a very experienced writer as well as editing his own magazine. The revised edition includes new additions to the Hornby range, including new rolling stock. The book is Hornby specific in that examples used are from the Hornby range but most of the information it contains applies to products of other manufacturers too. The appendix lists magazines that might be helpful and details the Hornby Collectors' Club and the Hornby Virtual Railway Mk2 DVD. There is also a large index.
