Got home for lunch today, and what to my joy should I find on the door step....the new FAQ 2 book by Mig Jimenez, published by AK Interactive. ...it was even signed!

What a tome this thing is..almost 300 pages. This book pretty much covers or touches on all the aspects of painting and weathering...paticularly on the more recent techniques. It works great as a stand-alone, or as a compliment/expansion of the original FAQ book. This book covers and expands on some of the techniques in the first book, and then goes on to cover and explain the newer techniques material and approaches that have developed since then. There is also a section on displays/dioramas, and a gallery of projects/models built using the described techniques. The explanantions and step by step photos are clear, concise, and easy to follow and understand.

I highly recommend this book for modelers of any level and genre. It is an invaluable resource, to once and for all answer and clear up many questions and misconceptions on the various techniques, as well as provide a solid foundation for developing your own approach/variation.

If you have any inclination that you might want one, I suggest getting it as soon as possible....this will likely sell out as fast as the first one.

I am betting there is 93 *euro* worth of information in this book. 36 euro for postage is quite frankly ridiculous, but I just could not resist it.

If i ordered the Book it would cost me... $ 87.35  total-- shipped to my door east coast... USA   But the US site said pre-order price.  I dont think the book is available in the US yet.  I heard the whole US shipment is held-up in US customs......because of the label on the shipping box's said AK-47 with a picture of a GUN.....so custom's thought the shipment was suspicious.  Heard this from Michigan Toy Soldier.

Brilliant. If I wanted to smuggle somthing suspicious into the US, I would certainly place a sticker on the box with some hints about the content.
How many seconds would it have taken them to leaf through a book and find out what it was about?

You are talking about our esteemed Homeland Security agency, America's answer to the Gestapo. You must qualify as an idiot to gain employment and be even more retarded to earn a position in management. I am so proud to be an American. -- Russ

I think you are being a bit hard on Homeland Security they are only following on from a long and distinguished history......

I can well remember getting into serious trouble in the early 90's flying into the States when I laughed out loud when trying to answer the questions on the American immigration form which was handed out just before landing.

Of the many intellectually challenging questions, the best was

Are you or have you ever been a member of a terrorist organisation ?

who needs water-boarding, just tick the YES box and go straight to jail!



Oh and the book looks really good, I've got the money for the book just saving up for the postage !
