Compared to the old series, these new Aeroguides have been completely re-vamped; while retaining the close up detail photos of old, these are now in full color and are of top-notch quality with excellent reproduction. These photos are supplemented by a host of additional features that were given somewhat perfunctory treatment in the old Aeroguides. The text is much expanded while remaining concise, and features chapters on development, history, exports and squadron colors and markings. In addition, a new feature is a series of full color profiles in the centre of the books that are to a large scale. These are set on two gatefolds; I like this idea. At the back of each book are a set of 1/72 plans, with lots of scrap views – unfortunately, those for the Canberra are bound across the middle of the views – it is a shame that the plans were not gatefold too. In spite of this, the overall package is of great use to the modeler.
