I credit Nick Moran and his Inside the Chieftains Hatch series of armor walkarounds and lectures for shifting my modeling interest from aircraft to armor. If you are not familiar with him i suggest you check out his Youtube page. He is entertaining and easily understood. I will definitly be buying a copy of this book.

Good review, Georg. We can never have too many reference works that are comprehensive and detailed.

We think we've come up with a solution for the picture problem. The run was a little over-saturated, which we didn't realise until it was too late, so what we are looking to do is email out a link to all those who purchased the hardcopy which will allow downloading of the e-book version. So if you are a modeler wishing for a better photograph of the fine details, you'll have it. We figure we'll have this ready in under a month.

Dear Mr. Moran,
That is wonderful news! I am happy to see that you and your publishers were able to come up with a solution that won't break the bank. I look forward to getting the download!
Regards,
Georg

Did you ever receive the link to the e-book version, by the way?
