Covering British, French and German trenches of the Western Front, Modelling WW1 Trench Warfare includes the different construction, materials and repair methods used during the conflict. 

Each chapter includes the historical background, together with step-by-step instructions. With over 300 photographs, this book covers why trenches were a necessity to save lives and how they adapted through the war. 

Instructions are given on how to build models of British 'ideal' and typical trenches, a wet soil trench, improved shell hole, front line dugout, tunnels and mines, and a hospital tent. The book includes a guide to visiting the trenches today, a trench glossary and useful measurements at 1:32 scale.

The author

Andy Belsey managed to turn his childhood hobby into a career and has been building architectural models for 40 years. His passion for the Great War began while researching his family's involvement, which in turn led to the creation of his World War 1 trench models.  Although Modelling WW1 Trench Warfare is his first book, he has written many magazine articles and blog entries about his work. He is known for developing simple construction methods that produce excellent end results and he is always finding ways to refine his work.
