The second title is 'The Encyclopedia of Modern Warplanes' ans was published in 1995 with the well known aviation expert Bill Gunston as the editor. Basically the book has the specifications of around 250 aircraft in service with the world's air forces at that time. It makes a good companion to the title above and the pair of them came to the mind-boggling sum of £1.50!
All in all then it was not a bad day out but it has given me much to think about. Do I really need to start yet another project? I tend to think of air games in the same terms as naval - you don't need a lot of stuff for a good game so they are fairly cheap to set up in 1/300th or 1/600th...................oh dear, I think I need to lie down, my wallet is groaning under the potential impact!
