Gordon Gravett's books

Gordon Gravett's name as been talked about a lot recently and I was curious to check out his technics after seeing his wonderful layout pictures.

I just received those books this morning and was quite impressed. Quite pricey, they are totally worth their price. Pertinent information and great looking technics. What I like is the fact most process are quite easy to understand, it's up to the modeller's skill to push them as far as he wants.

Highly recommanded and inspirational, Mr. Gravett's books gave the hobby a fine tool to reach another level. What may looks like skilled masterpieces are in fact built upon a simple thing all model railroader can attain easily: observing real things.

Books are available Wild Swan Publications Ltd. in UK and available at many respectable UK online bookstores:

  • Modelling Trees Part One - Broadleaf Trees
  • Modelling Trees Part Two - Conifers
  • Modelling Grassland and Landscape Detailing
