Review by Kevin Williams

"This particular book (No. 005 in the series), depicts the rather iconic Tornado, an aircraft that has been a personal favorite of mine for quite some time, and it’s geared toward both modelers and aviation enthusiasts alike, being very much a detailed, walk around overview of the type, and I couldn't be happier about that.

For me, this series (Aircraft in Detail) from HMH Publishing, is new, though they currently have several volumes available, that I had previously been unaware of. Sent to me for my library and to review for the site as well, by our own Nic C.D. (co-author of the splendid Daco book, Uncovering the Lockheed Martin F-16A/B/C/D), my first impression was very, very favorable indeed, as it's chock full of wonderful high resolution detail photos, just what the doctor ordered, and will prove especially useful when I finally crack-on with my own Revell kit.

It's all here, from the tip of the pitot tube, to the exhaust can thrust reversers, and everything in between;.. just perfect for the modeler or general aircraft enthusiast.

I cannot emphasize enough the amazing overall quality of these publications; great quality color photo paper and wonderfully clear, sharp color detail photography. Just great stuff. I'd also venture to say that you'd have to look long and hard to find so much comparable quality at a similar, and very competitive price. In point of fact, these books really seem under-priced, not that I'd urge them to raise prices, as I certainly would not, but they're really just such a great value. I hope in the long run that they're able to do many, many more in the series, like the F-111 Aardvark. Wouldn't that be sweet!"
