New book Preview from Spencer Pollard:

Harrier - Modelling An Icon
By Spencer Pollard
80 pages, A4 Softcover book
Price: £25
Following on from the release of his earlier titles, Spencer Pollard has released a detailed guide to the building and painting of the Harrier in miniature - his favourite aircraft and his favourite subject to model, the British variants of the famous Harrier.
Within this extended 80-page A4 modelling guide, you will find four individual features that tell the story of four very different models, approached in four very different ways. From the simplicity of my almost ‘out of the box‘ build of the Airfix 1:72 Harrier GR.3, through to the dainty detailing of Revell’s 1:144th scale Harrier GR.7, to the complex reworking of Hasegawa / Revell’s 1:48 GR.9A and onto the advanced, to an almost unrecognisable conversion of the huge Airfix 1:24 GR.1 into the streamlined T.2, there’s much to enjoy.
For more information and ordering details, please visit Spencer’s Blog page where you will find all you need to know about the book and how to order a copy. The link is as follows:

This book is being created as a strictly limited-run product and as before, the price reflects this. Many of you will already have the other books in your collections so — hopefully — will know what this means in terms of quality and how enjoyable it is to own something that’s rather niche in its approach!
If you are attending Scale Model World show 2019 in Telford and want to pick the book up, please email Spencer at or via PM on his Facebook page and I will add you to my reserved list and take your copy to the show to be paid for there, but please note: if you would like to reserve a copy and pay at the show, Spencer will be able to do that, but only if I have any copies left from the initial print run and you’ve contacted him beforehand.
This book will only be available through Spencer from the links above or from him at SMW 2019, and not likely to be reprinted unless there is a high demand so if you like what you see get in fast.
