Bill Hannan books 

When model designer, builder, draftsman, and author Bill Hannan decided to write his first "Peanuts and Pistachios" in 1986, he had no idea how successful it would be. Over the years since then there have been more books written with each one just as popular. The contents of each book comes from modelers all over the world. The articles, photos, and drawings are a great source of inspiration when looking for a new project to start.

Bill Hannan - Peanuts and Pistachios

Due to the outstanding enthusiasm and requests by our customers, we have had the entire 6 volume collection of Peanuts and Pistachios professionally re-printed in the same same high quality as the original printing. Now they can be yours for your reading enjoyment.
