    Anyone have any pictures of Sheperd Paine's work? I'm looking to teach some students about model building and I think I should show them one of the best model masters there is. I'm looking for any, hopefully all, of his model diorama pictures. Thanks.

    Hi Blue. Sorry I can't help with pictures, but I know there was a soft-back book available showing his work. The last time I saw it was in my local Library about a year ago, but I can't for the life of me remember the publisher.
    If he was the same guy that did the stuff for some of the larger Monogram kit leaflets, then I can scan a copy of the 1/48th scale B17G leaflet that came with the kit, which I still have. It illustrates some tips, and has a colour pic of a 'damaged' Fort' he did for the kit's release. Let me know if that would be useful, and I'll post it.
    Terry.

    Here's a link to his web-site. Check your local library for his books. Web-page also has some of the leaflets that Airframes mentioned. Looks to be a new book coming out on his work this month as well.
