In concise instructions and nearly 200 charming, easy-to-follow drawings, Modelmaking details the construction of both study and presentation models in common materials such as paper, chipboard, illustration board, foamcore, balsa, and basswood. It also covers choosing the right materials for the job, making a base to support the model, rendering contoured sites, as well as fashioning models of trees, people, and other entourage. To pique the interest of modelmakers, many imaginative illustrations show how to capture the essence of modern architecture as well as classical forms, including columns, pediments, and friezes. Throughout, Professor Sutherland stresses the need to create models that are not just accurate and sturdy but also beautiful.
