Third in a series on models. The World of Model Cars is a compilation on various aspects of model cars, beginning with a brief history of toycars and the early days of racing models. The text is thorough and concise and covers, in an easily readable style, the tools, the materials and methods of construction, displaying or operating the many types of model. From rubber and clockwork power, and gas-engined cable and rail racers, through diecasts, plastics, simple and advanced static models, military subjects, electric slot cars and tracks, to the currently immensely popular radio controlled electric and glow-engined cars, every feature is detailed. With extensive illustration, including a number of diagrams, The World of Model Cars is a complete handbook which will prove irresistible to modellers of all levels, collectors and enthusiasts and, indeed, everyone who finds fascination in that near 100-year miracle, the 'horseless carriage.'
