We've been busy this summer continuing our book series. In a couple of weeks, two new books will be available. And although we're just two people and only started the series only 4 years ago, with these two we're already at 22 books!

 

DH-021 is a 140 page book on the EA-6B Prowler. Filled with loads of details and action. We've included also some very interesting details of aircraft carrier deck material which might inspire modellers building dioramas. 

 

DH-022 is a 116 page book on the C-160 Transall, a two-engined transport aircraft used in France, Germany, Turkey and South Africa. This years marks the end of the service life of the aircraft within the Luftwaffe after 54 years. It is being replaced by the Airbus A400M Atlas. Not many books have been made on this aircraft and that's a shame, because it is a really impressive one. Here are the covers:

It was a lot of fun making these books, hopefully they can interest some of you.

Chris is right, there was one page in the A400M book that risked getting detached and after a talk with the printers, we decided to do a full reprint. And that is when we were faced with an unexpected effect of the Covid-19 crisis: very long delays on printing paper. It can take 6 to 8 weeks to get the paper for printing. So we had wait for the paper to arrive, but now we're printing 4 books at the same time: the two new ones on the Prowler and Transall, the A400M and a reprint of the F-16, because we were out of stock. 

 

To answer you question, Michael; it will be available by the end of the month! 

 

In November, we'll be releasing 2 more books that we're working on right now!

I like the HMH books very much. One of my favourite titles is the recent Alpha Jet book.

 

Hopefully, also a CM.170 book will come sometimes, as it was flown by the Bellgian Air Force as well for a long period of time.

 

The Daco 1:32 kit also is long obverdue ... . I already have seen a built model from a test shot two years ago. It has looked very, very nice BTW.
