    1. No, as far as I know. Maybe the editor can give you more details. Try asking here: info@migjimenez.com

  4. Hi Diego. I just wanted to say "bravo!" I just received the whole set recently and have read them now twice. These books are excellent. I feel like a better modeller for even knowing about some of these techniques even though I haven't tried many of them yet.

    I wish there was a little more about WWI subjects and their issues (like doing Fokker streaked camouflage, wing transparency through doped linen, making real wooden propellers, etc), but one can find methods for all of these things elsewhere or learn them empirically with enough work.

    Anyway, thanks for such a superb set of books. Very, very happy with them.

    1. Thank you so much Matthew. I´m really glad you enjoy the encyclopedia and you find it usefull. About WWI planes, you are absolutely right. WWI birds have a lot of different things from other planes, I would like to make a book about WWI aircraft modelling, what do you think?

    2. I think it would be a great idea, and would certainly welcome it since you do such great work and since it's the only subject I model. I'm not even sure there is a book specifically devoted to WWI modeling, so it might be a book that fills an existing void. Since WNW started their line, general interest seems to have gone up more in these kites, but I have no idea how big the audience is.

      You might already know about it, but if not, there's a great forum that might give you some ideas about what other WWI modelers obsess over.

      At any rate, I'll definitely keep my eyes open on all your future projects, and a book on WWI aircraft modeling would be a definite dream.

    3. Yep, I know the forum, lots of great stuff there. Definitely, there should be a book about this ;)
      Thank you Matt.
