Building MAC's Birddog in 1/32 Scale

KLP Publishing

Online publishing is now starting to find its way into the modelling community. KLP Publishing is one of the new online publishers, specialising in eBooks for the scale aircraft modelling community. Their debut title  Building Brick’s Sabre in 1/32 Scale: A Scale Tribute to K.J. "Brick" Bricknell  reviewed here has proved to be a success, and they are now following this up with  Building Mac's Briddog in 1/32, a scale tribute to Macaulay "MAC" Cotterell. The book again by Eric Galliers also includes anecdotes from MAC who flew the FAC in Vietnam in 1968. Here he was recommended for the Silver Star, but was awarded the DFC. One of the great aspects of digital publishing is the inclusion of 95 walkaround images from Rob Fox Photography.

Conclusion

This is the type of publication that the new digital format will embrace. The subject is not main stream enough for a traditional publication. This is clearly a book written by modellers for modellers. The text is clear and concise and the great selection of walkaround pictures crisp. The words from the pilot really do add to the story. It is worth mentioning that the two titles to date focus on the RAAF and this is something again worthy of praise as well. Highly recommended.
