The book is full of strange terminology such as 'thou' and 'plasticard' which was baffling to the 11 year old me, as were the amazing photos of model buildings that weren't Superquick. The 49 year old me sees a very dated style of working, which being written in 1971, it is. She even admits that she still uses tube poly-cement against the advice of contemporaries who are urging her to use bottle solvent. Dated it my be, but like a John Ahearn book there are words of wisdom applicable to now so I'd say worth picking up, or if you've got splendid mates like I have, they'll pick it up for you.
