To make a better layout, it’s important for modelers to construct buildings and structures that are unique for each project. Jeff Wilson’s new book shows readers what they’ll need to know about:

•    Detailing, painting, and creating signs.
•    Making structures appropriate for the era, railroad, and region being modeled.
•    Techniques for building plastic and wood kits, as well as kitbashing and scratchbuilding.

Modeling Structures is a great resource for model railroaders in general and structure modelers in particular. It is very well written, efficiently laid out, smartly presented, and illustrated with excellent photography. I think it strikes a concise balance between delivering knowledge and readability. I have no complains of consequence and recommend it. -
