Evening all,

While I was out and about doing some last minute Christmas shopping I came across a present for myself :D it has 177 pages containing coloured and black and white pictures of vehicle art from ww11, it's retail price is £19.99 but I had it for a bargain at £5.25, I'm not sure what book shops you can find it in as i found it at a Trago shopping centre, you can see the isbn number on the back sleeve so if you are interested I'm sure you can find it somewhere :thumbup:

Cheers, Lee. ImageImageImageImageImage

That would be a great reference book for modeling! Is there very much German art in the book. Seems like the Americans were allowed more freedom to paint stuff on their vehicles. Maybe I’m wrong.

There are a few pictures of German vehicles Jimster but they are a little more subtle with just a name appearing on the bodywork, as you said the Americans were a lot more elaborate with their art work, painting cartoon characters and pin up girls on their vehicles :thumbup:

Love those pinup girls but the girl in the Tiger 1 manuals was pretty hot as well. ;)
