A selection of genuine, unsolicited comments from satisfied customers.
Hi Andrew, I
ordered a few guides from you, and I have really enjoyed
reading them. Reading a well organized and thought out
presentation is so much more enjoyable than searching
for bits and pieces of information over the internet.
This series of guides is
awesome! As a previous customer of Gibbs Guides I knew
the quality and value for money would be outstanding.
Even so, I am amazed - you have really excelled yourself
this time, Andrew!
A high quality guide that’s
a definite must-have for any electric modeller. I am recommending
this guide to all my modelling friends.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this guide and
have learned so much from it.
I wish your books had
been available when I started electric modeling in 2003.
Your excellent power systems guides have filled in many
gaps in my knowledge.
I am part way through reading
the second of your guides and I have to write and tell
you its as good as the first one. I honestly never felt
I would understand electrics, yet you make it seem so
easy even for an older modeller like me.

showed your guide to my local model shop and I had a hard time getting
it back from them!
An outstandingly useful guide.
It should cost a lot more than you are asking.

investment I ever spent on modelling. Unbelievably good.
