Master Modeler: Creating the Tamiya Style by Shunsaku Tamiya

Master Modeler: Creating the Tamiya StyleAfter reading a snippet of this at Google Books, I got hooked. Its basically about the founding of the Tamiya model kit factory that is considered by many as one of the most successful model kit companies in the world today. I remember that Tamiya kits were the Holy Grail for me when I was a boy, they were expensive but you could be sure of the quality. Not to mention that when you talked about model paints, Tamiya was the only one available... hehehe

Yep, I'm definitely a sucker for success stories. It used to be when I was in a local bookstore I would always go for the war books, as I grew older I became more interested in the lives of successful self made individuals. Oh and I'm not talking about movie stars, there's a ton of that in the bookstore *snicker*.

I'm thinking of ordering it online at Amazon since this isn't something that I can easily come by at my local bookstore. Its currently out of stock at Amazon but its available from Amazon 3rd party sellers. But yeah, I might suddenly grow out of this desire to buy this book and splurge on a model kit instead... from Bandai... hahaha
