MTSC PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT UPDATE: Tanker Techniques Magazine from AK Interactive

Tanker Techniques Magazine from AK Interactive is one of the most specialized modeling magazines in the world . Each quarterly issue contains sections focused on painting, building and weathering and covers a particular topic or theme using some of the world’s best modelers. The techniques presented in Tanker Techniques are universal, easily applied to other models, not just tanks. Are you drawn to the technical side of our hobby? Are you secretly a rivet counter? If so, this is the must have magazine; each issue is a collectible resource packed with detailed information, galleries, interviews and more. You won’t be disappointed!

We are sure that Tanker will herald a new global benchmark for scale modelling magazines. This new approach and concept for a new quarterly magazine, focuses on amazingly realistic paint schemes and finishes, showing you how to accomplish them.  I especially like the sections titled School of Techniques and Tip's & Tricks. Excellent! Short! & Sweet !

The initial welcoming, critics and comments received about this magazine have been a lot more positive than we had ever expected. This makes us keep pushing to maintain and improve the quality and contents of this already reference magazine. This is an unconventional and collectable quarterly magazine with more than 100 pages and a must-have for AFV modelers.

The Latest Issue is...
AKI-4826 Tanker Magazine Issue 7 - Urban War
This is the seventh issue of Tanker Techniques Magazine, the modeling magazine focused on AFV painting and weathering techniques. 
....from AK Interactive
Urban warfare has left its print on the development of new tanks and armored vehicles. This issue of Tanker is dedicated to creating such an environment for your model. This issue shows how to make a street scene, destroyed and bombed out buildings, etc. This time the focus is more on how to present your model in such environments rather than on the vehicles themselves. Creating such scenes requires some planning and thinking, but it’s not as hard as it seems. In this issue we can feel the battle and the sensations of decadence in cities destroyed by the war. We will see how to recreate these environments, buildings and vehicles.
