I think I missed this at the Model Show last week. I meant to go back and take a look, but other stuff got in the way and it slipped my mind.

It looks very nice and a good price too.

Cheers, Chuck!

I understand it will be released within the next few weeks - I'll update when I hear for certain. In the meantime, it is available for pre-order.

Thanks, but I am not that talented! This is a nice in-flight photo by Scott Germain, graphic design by Jon Phillips. 8-)

Finally got my hands on this yesterday - at the IPMS Salisbury show. I've already started into it and it's not only stuffed with great photos and artwork, it's also very, very readable. I particularly like the coverage of the air racer variants - which is something I've not seen in any Sea Fury books before.

Another cracker.

Got mine this week. It was only coincidence that the publishers were offering 30% off all titles :grin:

I appreciate he kind words, Eric - glad you like it!

Still haven't received my copies yet - I must put a fire up someone's behind.....

The number of photos showing Sea Furies standing on their noses is noteworthy :)

Well, they do seem to have attracted the attention of photographers, rather than standard landings! ;-) Besides which, the modeller is able to see the tops and bottoms of wings...... :ha:

Something the pilots I'm sure were thinking of as their Sea Furies balanced precariously on their noses.

The picture of the aircraft handler dashing into the flames to retrieve the pilot is pretty impressive. It doesn't look like the chap is wearing any sort of flame proof clothing either.
