Warbird Tech Series, Volume 24 has been written by Dennis R Jenkins and
covers the Convair B-36 'Peacemaker'. It is a revised edition and has more pages
and more colour photographs than the first release.
histories can be bland. Fortunately though, the author of this book has the
ability to combine the plain facts with anecdotes about the B-36 in a
conversational manner that makes for an interesting read.
The book pretty well covers all aspects of the big bomber from the reasons that
it was manufactured, through all of the different production versions, and the
modifications it underwent including the nuclear powered experiments. The
coverage is quite comprehensive and even includes annexes on serial numbers and
the restoration of a B-36J at Forth Worth, Texas.
The text is liberally illustrated with sharp, clear black and white photos and
includes a chapter covering the colours and markings worn by the B-36 that has
eight pages of colour photographs.
The book itself comprises 104 pages printed on glossy paper with cardboard
If you are a modeller who is looking for good clear, sharp reference photos to
help with your build-up of the Monogram or Academy kits, or an enthusiast who is
just looking to find out about the 'Aluminium Overcast', then Warbird Tech's
B-36 'Peacemaker' certainly fits the bill.
