YEEEEEESSSSSSSSSS

Finally 21 days after arriving in the UK, my book has finally made the 181 mile journey!

And I must say it was worth the wait, waht an excellent accessory for the diorama beginner. I enjoyed the first book, and am enjoying this one, lets hope there are more!!

Congratulations to László Adóba, another great book.

Paul.

Happy New Year to everyone on Armorama

Does anyone know how long it usually takes for the shipment to arrive to the US? Mine was shipped on December 17.



I book of mine took 18 days , but that was right in the middle of the Chrismas rush.
It arrived for my client on the morning of the 24th !! Uff :-)

10-15 days is normal from Europe to US

I'm still anxiously waiting for my copy. Apparently its stuck somewhere in the crappy English postal system, all because of a touch of snow!! Looking forward to trying out some of the techniques.



I too am anxiously awaiting my order but in my case it must be stuck in the crappy US postal system.

Laszlo,

I have just received my book and I think it is absolutely great. I love the way you create very realistic models from cheap and readily available items. I am currently making a tree using the technique outlined in your book and I am really impressed with the results so far. My only question is that you mention using prefabricated leaves for the foliage. Who makes these and where can I get some ?

Keep up the good work and I look forward to the next book !

Andy.

Thanks for the link. Their currency converter on their site has me confused as I can't figure out the pricing. I'm guessing at about $25 a book though. Looking forward to checking these books out. "Q"




Exactly, $25 per book inluding shipping for the States

Where can we buy it? I clicked on the publishers web site link, but all I got was a picture of the book cover.. Looks like a good one to have on hand. "Q"

Jim Rae reviews Let's Build a Diorama # 2: Terrain & Vegetation by László Adóba, the second in the series and well worth a look.
