FirstRead

 

This new publication from Vanwell Publishing is in a format similar to Osprey Publishing. The quality of paper, photographs and printing is excellent.

The story starts with the Boeing Model 367-80, the transition to the B707 and its derivatives of the C-135. The first chapter in this publication is dedicated to the development by Boeing, for Model 367-80 and finishes with the definitive B707 and C-135. The designation for the Canadian B707 was the CC137.

This publication contains approximately 73 photographs with quite a few being printed in colour. Many detailed line drawings are included and many of these look like they have come from the original manufacturers maintenance manuals. 6 colour side profiles displaying different schemes worn by various aircraft of the CAF is also included. A very eye catching scheme is that of the aircraft in its 2 tone variegated, and the anniversary schemes.

At the back of the publication is a section on models available in 1/72, 1/100, 1/125 and 1/144. This chapter describes the accuracy of the kits and decals available at the time of publishing. A short list of aftermarket parts is also included for the modeler who wants to add the extra parts and decals.

In summary, this is a very concise and complete reference for any modeler wanting to build a Canadian CC137.

Highly Recommended

Thanks to Vanwell Publishing for the review sample
