In response to the constantly increasing cost of gasoline, food and postage, a new series  of  how-to construction guides by Richard Marmo is being produced in a downloadable PDF format.  Each guide will be fully illustrated on a step-by-step basis and focus on a single subject.  Prices will be kept low, generally $2.99 - $3.99, with immediate delivery to your computer after receipt of your online payment, avoiding a shipping charge that would effectively double your cost.   An advantage of the PDF format is that you can either keep it on your hard drive to view on your computer or print a hardcopy of any part or all if you prefer having the information on paper.

Subjects will usually deal with aircraft/aerospace, science fiction/fantasy or armor with other subjects possible, depending on requests received.   Stock buildups, conversions/modifications and scratchbuilts will all be possibilities, again depending on your interests and requests.  You may contact us by clicking here.
