Kadokawa presents a brand new introductory book on plastic modeling by popular YouTuber, Kino Kosaka!

This is a great introductory book on plamo (plastic models) for beginners to jump-start you into the hobby!

This book thoroughly introduces the basics, including how to make plastic models and how to use the minimum necessary tools, such as nippers.

The book also includes techniques for arranging your plastic models using items you have at home, such as painting them with Sharpies, or staining them with sponges.

There are also recommended cheap items you can use to expand the scope of your plastic model building, as well as photographic techniques that will make you want to post them on SNS, and much more!

Also included is a special conversation between former instructor Hasegawa and Kino Kosaka, who appeared in the popular plastic model cartoons of Comic Bonbon in the 90s, such as "Hyper Senshi Gundam Boy" and "Plastic Model Wars."

This is a must-read discussion of the appeal of plastic models between two people of completely different generations.

This book is perfect for people who are looking for a hobby that they can easily do at home, parents who want to teach their children how to make things in a fun way, and people who want to become better at making plastic models.
