I flipped through this book many times. It is a great helper.
It is a good starter book with a mix of old and modern emergency vehicle "how tos." This book got me interested in modeling emergency vehicles.
Book covers how to make: * Lightbar mounts * Searchlights * Radio antennaes * Shotgun mounts * Improve plastic and resin kits exterior and interiors * Model conversions * Lower SUV chassis * Other modeler's "how to" builds
A short list of mail-order companies is included but for more listings, one should go to discussion groups if you are a true fan of modeling emergency vehicles.
One part I find lacking from this book is the old magician's belief "Don't give away all your secrets." I wished the book told more of how that guy did this or that. The book has photos of what modelers did but isn't very descriptive of how they did it or where they got the parts. That's one "how to" the modeler must figure out for himself. Also, no price is given for completed model and if one starts down the modeling path, it can get pretty expensive mail-ordering all the needed items to make an emergency vehicle model.
Side note: Emergency vehicle modeling can get pretty expensive because as the book shows, the details, decals, and items are often not available in kits (or ONE kit) you can find in toy stores and hobby shops. You must mail-order from several companies.
A "must have" if anyone wants to start modeling emergency vehicles. I also recommend buying Motorbooks on the vehicle subjects too for color reference.
