Just published, a review of a recent publication from Ian Allen Publishing - Panzerkampwagen 38(t). This book covers both the original vehicle and the later variants such as the Hetzer, Grille and Marder III. The review can be seen:

Thanks for a good review Jim of a book that will probably be of help to those who build the Tristar 38. I must admit you tend to forget just what a versatile vehicle it was and how many important vehicles that were spawned from it.

I think I shall treat myself to this one as I await the future Dragon kit.

Good review, Jim (welcome back, by the way! )
I trust your judgement and always take your thoughts in mind when deciding on whether a book belongs in my library (or not!), and I believe that this title will fit nicely in my Pz. section, and as John has just said, will help us plan and research for the future DML kit!
Cheers!

I have a few books from Ian Allen Publishing, basically the "tank in detail" series, and I really like them. Mr. Gander has written a few of them (sherman & Tiger), and if this book is anything like those, it will be a worthwhile purchase.
I like how the chapters are layed out and more importantly, they are all written in a fashion thats light to read, loads of info and holds your interest. Its actually quite easy to sit down with one of these books and read it from cover to cover. This cannot be said about all speciality subject books. The photographs are well chosen and definately a plus for modellers.
When reading through your review, Jim, I felt like this was similar to the tank in detail books?
Good review ... I´d pick this one up based on the review plus what Ive seenin previous books.
