Once seen as a niche practice, the craft of weathering has now become firmly rooted in the railway modelling mainstream. Not simply a means of rendering models in layers of dirty paint, weathering involves a myriad of techniques aimed at improving realism, including distinctive surface textures, highlights and shading, burnishing and peeling paint finishes. The weathering process brings out the best in a model, making moulded relief or a lustrous livery really stand out. As well as replicating the real world more closely, weathering also helps a model to look at home within a scenic setting. Aimed at modellers of all abilities and eras, this book is an essential guide to creating the most realistic locomotives and rolling stock in any scale. It includes: a guide to tools, paints, washes, dry pigments and other innovative media; the correct techniques for model preparation; a wide range of techniques for wagons, carriages, locomotives and multiple units in any scale; how to replicate authentic surface textures and effects, from polished surfaces to corroded metal and worn timber; how to bring models to life with faded paintwork, peeling and chipped finishes and subtle highlights and shading; the secret to successful airbrushing. This book will be of great interest to railway modellers of varying abilities, particularly those interested in rolling stock and locomotives, and is fully illustrated with 660 colour photographs.

The 00 gauge ready-to-run market has changed dramatically over the past decade, with supreme levels of accuracy, detail, finish and mechanical performance now becoming the standard benchmark of all new models. As the hobby continues to blossom, an increasing range of steam, diesel and electric subjects now find themselves in the catalogs of the leading manufacturers. Have the days of super-detailing and repainting our models now gone, or is there still a place for a more 'hands-on' approach to the hobby of railway modeling? Professional model-maker George Dent suggests that even these state of the art models can be improved and offers a plethora of ideas and projects to produce some unique and highly detailed miniature locomotives. The book covers prototypes from the beginnings of British Rail's Modernization Plan up to the present privatized scene and aims to cater for all skill levels.

The airbrush is an essential tool for modelers striving for professional-looking results. It can greatly enhance the quality of your modeling output, whether applying a full livery scheme or simply blending in areas of new paintwork. A good airbrush will offer unparalleled levels of finish and consistency, as well as the chance to create unique effects such as weathering and stenciling. This book reveals how anyone can use an airbrush effectively, provided that a few basic rules are followed. All of the necessary techniques are described, along with a wealth of practical guidance and detailed advice on choosing a spraying set-up to match your own needs and budget.

During the twenty years in which Britain's nationalized railway operated mainline steam locomotives, a vast array of individual designs complemented the British Railways 'Standard' machines, built up to 1960. Such was the variety of motive power to be seen on the network that this 'early' period of BR's existence has proved to be the most enduring amongst enthusiasts and modelers. The ready-to-run market has reflected this popularity in terms of models and liveries available off-the-shelf. Despite constantly rising levels of detail, finish and performance, r-t-r models can never cater for every variation in components, equipment or livery that invariably arose within large and long-lived fleets. Nor can they offer particular running numbers and names to satisfy every customer, while older products may also require work to bring them up to the standard of contemporary offerings. Therefore, being able to change factory-applied decals, add period or individual locomotive-specific details, modify a livery or create an authentic weathered finish can prove vital to achieving a heightened sense of realism and individuality within our traction fleets.

Harold Cleaver ist auf dem Höhepunkt seiner Karriere als Fernsehjournalist. Über sein denkwürdiges Interview mit dem amerikanischen Präsidenten spricht man im ganzen Land, nicht nur in London. Man spricht aber auch über das gerade erschienene Buch seines Sohnes, ein kaum verschlüsselter Roman über seinen Vater: "Im Schatten des Allmächtigen". Und plötzlich ist ihm klar, dass er weg muss. Weg von der medialen Öffentlichkeit, weg von seiner langjährigen Lebensgefährtin und den gemeinsamen Kindern. Das Bedürfnis nach Stille ist übermächtig. Er bucht einen Flug nach Mailand und fährt in ein entlegenes Dorf in Südtirol, um dort eine Hütte "über der Lärmgrenze" zu finden, wo er für niemanden mehr erreichbar ist. Wochen später, eingeschneit in dieser abgelegenen Hütte, muss er feststellen, dass die Stille kein Garant für Ruhe ist und dass nichts so verstörend ist wie die Stimmen im eigenen Kopf.

„I once had a girl / Or should I say, she once had me" John Lennon/Paul Mc Cartney Der Beatles-Ohrwurm „Norwegian Wood" ist für den siebenunddreißigjährigen Toru Watanabe ein melancholischer Song der Erinnerung: an den Aufruhr der Gefühle in einer schmerzvollen und schicksalhaften Jugend, die er zu bewahren und zu verstehen versucht. „Naokos Lächeln" erzählt lebendig und leidenschaftlich von einer Liebe mit Komplikationen in den unruhigen sechziger Jahren: Toru, der einsame, ernste Student der Theaterwissenschaft, begeistert von Literatur, Musik und wortlosen Sonntagsspaziergängen auf Tokios Straßen, erfährt früh, dass der Verlust von Menschen zum Leben und zum Drama des Erwachsenwerdens dazugehört. Der Jugendfreund Kizuki begeht Selbstmord, die geheimnisvoll anziehende Naoko verirrt sich in ihrer eigenen unerreichbaren Welt und Toru Watanabe muss sich zwischen ihr und der vor Lebenslust vibrierenden Midori entscheiden.
