REVIEWS

"This undoubtedly is a great resource for the historical buff as well as an excellent reference for the modeler, beginner or skilled. Given the time frame the photos were taken, most are of high quality with an exorbitant amount of clarity and detail which the modeler or historian will find helpful."

"The majority of the photos are of the steel wheel version with the solid rubber tire variant getting a smaller section. Any information on the gun in the image is provided through the captions of the many photos in the book. This sort of thing is a boon to modelers and enthusiasts alike. It is a welcome addition to this series."
