About Jim Starkweather (staff_Jim)
FROM: CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES

I started building models in 1971 when I was 6. My first model was a 1/32 P-40 Warhawk. Revell I believe. From there I moved onto the standard cars, Apollo spacecraft, and other kid orientated kits.

Hi Jim, very nice video, it's a really helpful little book for those who want to better their figure painting skillset. One thing I had really hoped for when I saw that this item was being reviewed here was a bit more attention to the English translations. You may recall a previous review on their learning series book on realistic wood effects here on Armorama, where they were taken to task for their rough translations (rightfully so I may add). HERE I am trying very hard to get the point across to them as to the extreme importance of the English translations but they are struggling to accept the added time and cost of doing this. I hope you understand this isn't a harsh criticism of your video but I wonder if after you read through the text, you could supply us with some feedback. I do intend on getting a copy to Jake to review (if he is so inclined) when the new AK North America website is up and running to have a good comparison by the same reviewer, but if you do happen to read through the book and have any thoughts to share, additional feedback isn't a bad thing. Thanks
