Editorial Reviews

Scott Van Aken
In all, it makes for not only a fine read, but also one that brings to this editor quite a bit of nostalgia as I see on these pages actual aircraft on which I've worked or been associated. It is a book that I can easily recommend to you.
Modeling Madness
Chris Banyai-Riepl
Overall, this is a great reference of a lesser known aviation subject, and should hopefully inspire some to try an AMARG model.
Internet Modeler
Hub Plott
This book will be of interest to the modeler, aviation enthusiast/historian alike. I can recommend it to all that like the subject.
IPMS
Al Bowie
This is a title that will find equal appeal amongst modelers, historians and aviation enthusiasts everywhere. It is a fascinating study and the photographs are diverse and representative of the collections that have been and are currently stored.
