Background

Auto Modeling is a high quality Japanese language magazine from publisher ModelArt. Each edition features models of cars, mostly racecars, from various race series and eras. Many of the previous editions focused on Formula One cars in different time periods.

The magazine has Japanese text, but some of the titles and headings are in English. The photographs are numerous and very high quality.

Summary

This is a beautiful magazine with photos of equally beautiful models. The language is a barrier, but the photos are clear enough to get a good understanding of the kits but not how the builder actually did so. The quality of the modeling is absolutely top-notch.

Thanks to ModelArt Magazine and IPMS/USA for the review item.
