By the way - I just finished up an Academy 1/32 F/A-18C - and your book on that was really helpful. They're great additions to the modeling library.

Well, I'm actually in a bind of indecision. I have the Modern SLUF Guide 99% complete, and I have the Modern Viper Guide, 2nd Edition, with all of the export models, dorsal spines, extra lumps & bumps, etc, about 50% done. I've been working on the Viper Guide mostly of late, but I don't know which I'll put out first.

My vote is for the SLUF. Would be good timing with the late October 2014 retirement overseas.

It's also possible that some of the kit manufactures will catch on and release some kits and decals depicting some of their flights.

I'd go with SLUF. I'd be more inclined to get something I don't have enough reference on rather than an update to something that's already pretty well covered.

Jake, Question.........

All your books have been US Aircraft, but have you ever considered to do aircraft outside of the US?

I don't see anyone who has tackled the Eurofighter Typhoon in great detail. Kangero Topshots did a book, but not in the detail and depththat you could do it in.

considered it? yes.

I don't see a Typhoon Guide coming any time soon, though. Understand that there is always a restriction (or several) on what I can and what I cannot shoot when doing a Modern Guide. With something as new as the Typhoon, F-22, etc, they aren't going to let me shoot much in the way of details. And rightly so.

I just had a laugh as the Eurofighter took so long in development/testing that it was well out of date by the time it hit front line service.

I remember seeing the EAP and Rafale A at Farnborough in 1986 - almost 30 years ago.......

And not to be a dick - but, we haven't done so well with the F-22, F-35, V-22, new tanker... It's amazing how long (and political) all these things get.
