New book, 96 pages. The SM Series books will follow a new standardized size format from RSP, which is a smaller and lighter scaled-down version of the famous TANKART books. The new size is 6.5" x 7.5", traditional perfect-bound, with a minimum of 96-pages in length. Each book is wrapped with a special linen stock that is completely unique to the hobby world for a softcover publication, and the interior paper is an eco-friendly 30% recycled stock that gives these new books a great tactile feeling. A core premise of the new series is to explore and redefine artistic and creative finishes for each subject. The SM Series launches with a most unusual and unique project - 1/35 FichtenFoo's Fantastical Fish-shaped Submersible - for a few good reasons. It is an ideal starting point to illustrate this new book concept because the model is defined by its turn-of-the-20th Century styling, yet the author has tackled the paint job with a more contemporary science fiction-based scheme that creates a wholly original final result, both to fully illustrate and educate on the technique conversations, but to also showcase what is possible when we step outside the envelope and push our creative levels higher and higher.
