Howdy folks,

 

With the launch of our debut title, Building Brick's Sabre in 1/32 Scale, now out of the way, it's been full steam ahead with work on our second title, and it's now advanced enough that I can formally announce it:

 

Building Mac's Birddog in 1/32 Scale: A Scale Tribute to Macaulay "Mac" Cottrell

Much like the Sabre book, this one is based on Eric's fantastic build of Mac's Birddog right here on the forums, but will also include material from Mac. I'm also currently negotiating for another set of exclusive walkaround photos. If you've seen the ones in the Sabre book, you'll know what you're in for!

 

I've written up a short blog post on my website, announcing the new book:

 

https://www.klp.com....r-second-title/

 

And don't forget our Facebook page, too:

 

https://www.facebook.../klppublishing/

 

Give us a 'like' if you haven't already!

 

I'll be posting sample pages of the new book closer to its release, the date of which hasn't been set yet.

 

As ever, if you have any questions, ask away!

 

Kev

Thanks, Ray. I'm pleased to say that this one is coming together much more quickly than the first one!

I've just taken delivery of a set of walkaround photos of the Bird Dog from Mark Jessop:

We're also working on obtaining some additional images of a Bird Dog in a more standard configuration and finish. I'll keep you posted!

I've just uploaded a revised cover image for the book, as I'm reliably informed that the aircraft name is actually one word, not two - ie, Birddog, not Bird Dog.

 

There's been an unfortunate delay in acquiring the walkaround photos I've been seeking for the book, but I'm hoping to have that resolved in the next couple of weeks.

 

Stay tuned!

Good news! I've finally been able to obtain a set of walkaround photos for the book:

Thanks to Rob Fox of Rob Fox Photography, who snapped an exclusive set of his very own Birddog, VH-FXY.

 

Book launch coming soon!

Thanks, Ray - me too! Just awaiting final confirmation and contractual arrangements, and then I can complete the walkaround section and launch the book!

Kevin...

I am glad you started the KLP Publishing because I am someone who cannot stop buying hard copies of books and end up with no space. ;)

BUT with this I can buy without the worry of space... your titles on offer are very much needed and I can't wait to buy them fairly soon..

All of the titles /Books are Amazing and I have promised MYSELF that come January I will be buying them.

Thank you.

:thumbsup:
