The subjects of this visual presentation were highly successful Cold War era jet combat aircraft, exported to many countries and adapted with Israeli assistance for the South African Air Force. The Mirage III was the first Western European aircraft to exceed Mach 2 in level flight.
As a highly respected special interest publisher, MMP produces many of its books specifically for the serious aviation modellers and collectors. This series features a very concise Introduction and supportive captions for each image produced by the author specifically for this new book. He has created some stunning full colour side views of the subjects, making full use of the A4 landscape format.
Although this work is aimed at the modelling and collecting communities, many copies will be purchased by those interested in the outstanding images. It comes down to a matter of taste but this reviewer believes the crisp production should be used as a book, although one of our colleagues buys books from this series and has the pages cut and framed for his home and summer cabin. It has to be admitted that this approach is a highly cost effective way of obtaining aviation wall art that is always visible.
