Shep Paine's Armor Modelers Guide and John Maher's Tiger I

Gallery showcasing both these panzers.

As many of you know Shep Paine was a friend and mentor to many in the Hornet Hobbies community. The last book that he was working on before his passing last year has reached the shelves and Shep Paine's Armor Modelers Guide is a treat. The format is a truly worthy way to celebrate Shep's legacy. The instructional sections are followed by chapters showcasing the work and detailed how-to process of the master modellers that Shep taught and inspired.

The first of these showcase chapters (and the cover model) is by one of our local friends, John Maher, and his stunning Tiger I. Hornet Hobbies is truly excited to have John's Tiger on display in the store. Come in for a look and bask in its glory.
