publication from Vanwell Publishing is in a format similar to Osprey
Publishing. The quality of paper, photographs and printing is excellent.
starts with the Northrop YF-5A and the transition to the CF-5A. The
first chapter in this publication is dedicated to the development by
Northrop, for YF-5A and finishes with the definitive F-5E.
publication contains 89 photographs with the majority being printed in
colour, which is very handy when viewing the aggressor aircraft in their
multi colour schemes.
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
aggressor aircraft in its 3 tone grey lizard, grey and ghost camouflage
schemes. A detailed breakdown lists the history and final fate of all of
the aircraft delivered to the CAF.
At the back
of the publication is a section on models available in 1/72, 1/48, and
1/32 scales. 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.
this is a very concise and complete reference for any modeler wanting to
build a Canadian CF-5A or D.
