In this 2 hour instructional DVD, Clinton H. Groves explains in great detail how to successfully build vacuum formed aircraft models.
Clint Groves was the founder and President of ATP, which specialized in the sale of airliner kits and decals. Clint produced this video in the mid 1980s to explain to his customers how to build vacuum formed models. The orignal VHS video have not been available for many years and to this day, no other instructional DVD or video has addressed this specialized aircraft model building topic.
Clint very clearly explains in detail how vacuum formed models are produced from molds, what tools and supplies are required, how to remove the parts from their vacuum formed sheets, how to prep and sand the parts, how to glue the parts together, and how to sand and putty the vacuum formed model to prepare it for final painting and decal application.
This DVD is a must have DVD for any serious modeller of airline models as well as casual model builders that would like to start building vacuum formed models. The DVD finishes with a tour of Clint’s completed models display case.
(Sad note: Clint passed away on June 30, 2015, after a debilitating
