It s all in the details,most of the time I m content to work as an. out of the box builder Molded plastic parts are,more detailed than ever and once exotic pho. toetched metal and cast resin parts are more com, mon in off the shelf kits Usually everything I need. is provided neatly bagged and tucked in under the parts trees. Sometimes though my passion for detail goes beyond the. boundaries of a box stock build Maybe it s a passion for the. subject matter or maybe it s a desire to push the limits of my. skill that drives me to add a higher level of detail I bet you ve. had the same experience, FineScale Modeler was founded to feed your passion for mod. eling whether you re a weekend builder or a die hard master. modeler Either way we hope you ll enjoy this booklet and. thanks for your interest in FSM,editor finescale com.
