|This is the third book by Classic Warships in the Aircraft
Pictorial series and the second book authored by Dana Bell. Like his previous
book on the Vindicator this
one is packed full of useful information, photos, and drawings.
|Mr. Bell has really done his homework as the book as this book is a treasure trove of information. Many of the photos come from the manufacturer and document all kinds of details of the aircraft. The photos are of the usual high resolution quality that we have come to expect from Classic Warships Publishing. They show interior and exterior details in great clarity. Almost enough to scratchbuild a large scale model of one. Certainly enough to superdetail one.||
|There are 72 pages in the standard Aircraft/Warship Pictorial
soft cover format in the 72 pages. 71 B&W and 8 color. There are also
drawings and illustrations. Some like the color marking guide shown below
even include dimensions of the lettering.
