"To produce a book on modelling one of the most complex AFV subjects would be a daunting process for any author. The authors of this book have produced, in my opinion, one of the most complete books in Osprey's highly useful modelling series." --Jim Rae, Armorama (February 2006)"On my first reading of the manual, I couldn't put it down until I read and studied it from front to back (and then again!), so I'm going to give this manual a definite thumbs up, highly recommended from this modelers point of view." --Mark Smith, Armorama (December 2005)
