Reviews

"Whether books inspire our models or our models pique our interest in their history, this book is an excellent source for either interest." - Model Ship Wrights"This excellent "Duel" effort provides an illuminating introduction to both of these classic combatants. It enjoys my strong recommendation." - Cybermodeler"This is a good read. There is a lot of information within the pages. The photos and drawings are a great enhancement for the book. This book is recommended to the aviation historian, buff and modeler alike. I don't think you will be disappointed." - IPMS / USA Reviews
