I think there is no such book release on the international market.

Some of the material is published for the first time.

Many photos show each side of the fighter and much more....

A big advantage is the number of revealing photos of active weapons.

In any book on the F-16 which has been internationally released these weapons reference is absent.

Publisher is going to re-print the book, stock is very low only few months after the release (1st of October)

Next release: "40 years of Hellenic Phantoms" coming soon...

Hi, I don't think so, there are already the very good references from Reid air pub, mentionned below.

I have both of Viper guides form Reid air publishing, is there any point in me purchasing this one also? It does look nice.

Again, don't think so, unless you collect everything "viper", or you have some plans for a Greek machine.

I've also the Reid air books, and I don't know yet if I'll get this one....yet!

The F-4E Phantom from Eagle Aviation is now available and in stock (published at 28 of February)

Concerning Reid Air Publications, their books are excellent and very good reference indeed and that is why HOBBY Colours import them, at least most of them. We are waiting the new release for F-15 from Reid Air Publications (within March) - this will be the first complete reference book for the "Eagle".

Without going to any debate, there are a lot of books out there but what is interesting for the modellers is what details can be revealed for each aircraft.

Reid Air Publications, Eagle Aviation and DACO books capturing photos and details having in mind what modeller wants to see.

Jake Melampy (Reid Air Publications) and Ioannis Lekkas (Eagle Aviation) are both very experienced photographers with flying experience in military aircraft's. No matter if the book refers to the same aircraft, it is still a unique subject, different air-force with variant weapons and releases.

The choice is yours!
