    In the Limited Edition of Lorne Peterson's Star Wars Sculpting A Galaxy book, among the extra features is advertised a 12 page booklet covering the 'white model process': What is this 'white model' process?

    I have been a long-time fan of movie miniatures but have only recently started making my own, so my knowledge is limited. I obviously have not seen this booklet.

    I have the mass market edition of the book and do not foresee being able to afford the Limited Edition on the secondary market any time soon.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Well I haven't seen the 12 page booklet but as a model maker in the F/X industry a "white model" normally refers to a quick study model made of foam core.
    It's a quick way to figure out scale, size, proportion, etc. It's also a cheap material and easy to cut and tape/glue together.
