I hope by sharing this here, more people will give 1/48 a try. Pat does some excellent work and is to be commended on sharing his knowledge.




The book is 112 pages in length and a little over
45Mb in size. It can be downloaded to your PC,
burned to a CD and taken to your neighborhood copy
center where they can duplex print and bind it for
you at a nominal cost. Of course, you can always
print it out at home if you have adequate equipment
and enough tonot/ink cartridges.
(I printed mine on a color Laserjet in work)

Download the e-Book here:

We hope that you benefit from this study and that it
encourages those new to the scale and quarterscale
addicts to get started building!

I'm hoping to collaborate with Pat on future step-by-step
tutorials so keep your fingers crossed!

Is there a way to download it without giving away e.g. Facebook information?

I'm with Chris on this one. Greg, I know you did this out of a sense of sharing and camaraderie but man these sites throw me for a loop. I never know which of the 6 or 7 DOWNLOAD NOW buttons are the real one. Can someone help a computer Neanderthal be sure which is the correct one? I tried two, one sent me to Ashleigh Madison, the infamous have a one night stand site and the other just wanted to download Opera to my operating system. Would love to take a look at Pat's work but where on the page is the actual download?
Cheers,
Rick

Ah, good idea! I have a joke gmail account I made for one of my cats...

I trust that making the PDF more easy to download will be okay, so I have taken the liberty of hosting it on dropbox here where I think it is easier to download. (If not please say the word and I will remove it.)

Just open a free Google account without your real/personal info and download it. Some of you have not adapted well to the information age


For the guy having trouble with which download to pick.

I just clicked on the link posted in the original tab and got taken to a porn site. Tried it twice with the same result. Chris's link worked though.
