This arrived yesterday, I have a quick flick through it and first impressions are that it is quite a heavy read. It would appear at first glance to be very thorough and covers a whole range of aspects from tools he uses through to studying the kit, cleaning and preparing, manufacturing processes, assembly techniques, basic detailing through to basic painting of the model. He also spends some time on the principles of soldering etc.

It has basic illustrations in black and white. I'd imagine there are others that may be more up to date in terms of publishing.

Seems like a good reference to have. I purchased it initially for tips on getting white metal soldering within my capabilities and to have a written reference to have by my side when attempting a kit. Looks like a good choice.
