There is a new series of books showing us such as cars or motorbikes, from we can detail our models as they are. On their website they call "Ultra detail guides". The truth is, I can attest to that because the volume has fallen into my hands, gives evidence that we not only detail our models but we can go further and try to make the details hitherto unaware. With these guidelines we open the doors of a hitherto hidden world: rivets, cables, tubes, washers and bolts, frames and colors. It only remains to pass to the desired level, because everything can be done, just a matter of trying.

The guides have a nice format, great touch, being his key point the photos. Say, a picture is worth a thousand words, and that should be cu key, since about 50 or 60 photos, there are only 15 words in the whole book. And to show it. Belong to its numero 1 dedicated to Mclaren MP4-13, we see that the photos are classified Front, Tyres, Back, Inside and Engine. And way to a selection of photos that you can see enough detail to keep us a lifetime building the MP4-13:

On their website http://komakai.eu/, there is a second volume dedicated to the Honda NSR500 1984, which I imagine will follow this line number 1 and be seen, which are the next numbers appear with us delight. Just to say it is now available in Spotmodel as pre-booking.

I see they are only available to pre-order from the online retailers that stock them, does this mean they're not currently available or can you order direct?
