OK just read the blurb : 100 pages, 25 subjects. Works out at 4 pages each on average, including historical background, action and detail photos. There's not much left for the actual building and painting process and accompanying photos isn't it? Just wondering... Cheers, Christophe

I have actually been curious as to just what to expect from these publications as I have no way of actually previewing an example. I am still interested in them.

He guys, Don't know if any of you still remember this IDF Armour book that was supposed to be released. Well I had a word with some people over at SAM publications to see why it wasn't released yet. The book is sadly not going to be released before 2013. They are however thinking of releasing it as an e-book this year if there is enough demand for that. So if any of you are still interested in this book and would like to get it as an e-book version please say it here so I can let the publisher know and hopefully convince them to release it. Cheers, JW
