A larger scale model of The Silver Angel is under construction
When I am conducting my book signings at craft and book fairs, I like to create a bit of interest on the table. A good way to this is to use some promotional props. Being a keen model maker, I had decided to make some models of some of the things that feature in the books. For Wings of Death, what can be more attractive than a scale model of the Brinton BR-101 Rapier strike aircraft itself, accompanied by a model of Alex Swan’s Triumph TR-4A sports car?
These props certainly add interesting talking points that could also lead to book sales, so I will be carrying on with this trend with models of the Black Arrow satellite launch vehicle and a Krupp K-5 German railgun, as featured in Countdown to Terror. Future models on the workbench will be a pink SAS Land Rover, a Shackleton maritime aircraft and a Tench class Hunter-Killer submarine. Things that will feature in my next Alex Swan Mystery novel
