Michael Rinaldi, one of the finest model makers today and author of extremely popular TankArt series, is raising funds through Kickstarter campaign to keep the momentum of Rinaldi Studio Press titles. If you are interested in helping to create the next round of amazing hobby books focused on world class painting & weathering techniques and philosophies, click the Kickstarter link and support the phase 2 of RSP operation.

It's with a lot of excitement and confidence that I step into the second phase of operations with Rinaldi Studio Press. With the help of friends and family I have created a new Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds to support RSP and stabilize my young company and push it into the future and achieve all that these first 3 TANKART books have set out to do. You can see the reviews of TANKART 1, 2 & 3 right here on Armorama if you are unfamiliar.

Please review the Kickstarter link below and support the cause! Pledge, and share with your friends, family, colleagues, and business networks, anyone you can think of. Please help me get the word out, this is the key to success with any Kickstarter program. Many, many thanks!!

Hey guys, First, my thanks to Mario for posting this news here on Armorama. Our Kickstarter campaign is showing early signs of life and we are off to a solid start. But this will only work with your support! That is the foundation of this process to help get RSP onto a more stabilized platform and produce a broad range of new titles. If you are not familiar, Kickstarter is a proven style of crowd-funding to help companies create new products, and in our case, grow stronger and become more consistent with our releases. It's an all-or-nothing process, meaning if we don't hit our funding goal in the 30-day timeframe, we get nothing. If we achieve it, you are only charged then and we get access to the funds a few weeks afterwards. No one is charged (handled by Amazon Payments) until the funding goal is reached, so the risks are very low to all the backers. Any pledge amount is acceptable from $1 upwards...and there are special pledge-level rewards set at certain amounts that provide more exclusive content and some rather cool items exclusive to this campaign. This should be a very achievable goal and it only takes very little to lend a hand -- Let's do this guys! I will be previewing a considerable amount of new things on our Facebook page and on our Kickstarter page (backers will receive these directly too) during the campaign including, but not limited to, new book layouts, new models in-progress, new promo videos, new modeling tip ideas, and a glimpse at some other new future products that will be coming from the always busy RSP workbench!

If I was a millionaire, I would get all three weekend seminars for myself. Good luck with the campaign. I never used Kickstarter before and this one will be my first pledge. Mario

I'll pledge. Man if only I had enough money I'd go for the package of Tankart 1-4. Then id buy some more of your publications Mike.

Hi Mike, I have pledged the 1-4 package so I am hoping it all takes off for you!! One question if for some reason it doesn't would I still be able to purchase the same deal direct so to speak?? Best luck Cheers Mike

Thank you guys! The support so far has been fantastic and is great to see. Yes, Mike, I will always offer up combo packs as new books come out. This program was designed to generate funds for new TANKART book production, and to help expand RSP into additional modeling segments that I feel can benefit from what the TA books have started. I'm very excited to have this opportunity to do so!

You guys have the power to make it all happen. Get behind this campaign and become a backer of TANKART 4 German Armor. It begins the next saga of the series and will include new models, new ideas, new presentation styles and ever more information to make your modeling better. Every backer helps. Every single one. Let's do this... RSP KICKSTARTER
