Welcome to Glenn Hoovers Model Build Instructions

A unique service for Plastic Modelers

As most experienced modelers know, if you follow the model’s instruction verbatim, you risk damaging the model. For example, the instructions may call for adding a small, fragile antenna in the first or second step. The chance of you damaging the antenna as you assemble the rest of the model is assured. My instructions take this into account. I reorder the steps to minimize handling damage. Another nice feature is that I incorporate any third party add-on components like Eduard’s photo etch into my instructions. I highlight the steps for the basic model verses those for the PE. The steps include graphics cut from the model’s instructions. I have built the model following these steps and included quality photos of the build. In the end, the modeler will have a near perfect model. NOTE: THE ACTUAL MODEL KIT IS SOLD SEPARATELY THROUGH YOUR FAVORITE STORE

In this example from my CH-53E Instruction Book, I’ve created a high level flow chart of the major steps required to build the very complex 1/48 scale Super Stallion from Academy. The book contains 130 pages with 869 detailed steps with photos on how to build this awesome model.
