StarFleet Assembly Manuals 1-3

by Paul M. Newitt. Ultimate Modeling Edition.  This is a reprint of the first three Starfleet Assembly Manuals with additional new material. Paul provided the original negatives for the books, so these look as good, if not better than the originals. You can throw your pirated copies away! 

StarFleet Assembly Manual 1 covers the basic construction of the AMT 18" Enterprise. Everything from removing the parts from the sprue, to gluing, puttying and sanding. This is the basics of building models!

StarFleet Assembly Manual 2 shows you assembly of the original AMT Klingon Battlecruiser and Romulan Bird of Prey kits.   It includes basic lighting and battle damage techniques

StarFleet Assembly Manual 3 returns to the Enterprise with advanced building, painting and lighting. It shows how to install electronics, as well as accurately detail the kit. 

Updated material discusses the exact color of the Enterprise, lighting the K-7 Space Station, and building a Galileo diorama and much more

All 3 books featured little bits of Trek technology too. Additional material includes a new introduction by Paul describing the story behind the original publications. 

New appendices include several pages of corrections, a new comprehensive listing of reference material, an updated article on the color of the Enterprise, factoids on the studio models, tips on building the Polar Lights kits [thanks to Jay Chladek], short articles on lighting the K7 space station, building the Nomad model seen on Enterprise, building a shuttle hanger bay. There are reprinted diagrams from Mandel and Drexler's Officers Manual, and a nice update by Paul as to what he's been doing these last 25 years.
