Pacific War Series Gakken 14 - Aircraft Carriers

g_14_hd.gif (47250 bytes)

The Japanese Gakken Series has been around for some time, and I still cannot understand why they've never printed their books in English in addition to Japanese text. The detail and information in these books in fantastic, and is probably even better if you read Japanese. Gakken 14 focuses on Akagi and Hiryu, and features 2 very nicely done 1/200 models of each. These books are affordable ($20 retail for this at a Japanese language bookstore in NYC) and can be obtained through Pacific Front Hobbies, Hobbylink Japan, or Rainbow Ten.
