The Modern SLUF Guide: The A-7 Corsair II Exposed
The Modern Guide series is aimed primarily at scale modelers wishing to get the details just right on their scale masterpiece. Each book in this series is exhaustively researched and documented, with nearly 1,000 full-color images images taken from in-service aircraft rather than museum pieces or even airshow displays, thus representing the aircraft exactly as they appear on a typical flying day. These photos, coupled with descriptions of the aircraft systems, weaponry, and upgrades/modifications, and even flight characteristics, result in an uncomparable reference book. The Modern SLUF Guide is 184 pages, featuring 936 full-color images of every imaginable part of the A-7. Typical of any book in the Modern Guide series, it covers the cockpits, radar, landing gear, engine, ordnance, and all facets of the airframe with heavy emphasis on open panels and maintenance photos for the model builders. US Navy, USAF, and Greek jets are covered, including A-7C, A-7D, A-7E, A-7H, TA-7C, and A-7K.
