Présentation de l'éditeur

For more than thirty-five years, the Detail & Scale Series of aviation publications was considered one of the best references on military aircraft available. Focusing on the physical details of the aircraft, such as cockpits, engines, avionics and electronics, armament, landing gear, and more, each of the sixty-nine titles in the series provided the most detailed look at a wide variety of aircraft dating from World War II to the present.

The “F3H Demon in Detail & Scale” continues the well-established and respected Detail & Scale format as the first digital title in this series. It covers McDonnell’s Demon, a jet fighter flown by the U. S. Navy in the 1950s and 1960s, in extensive detail. There are more than 340 photographs, and of these, more than 140 are photographs of details covering the Demon inside and out. All of the detail photos are in color, and almost all were taken specifically for this publication.

The 340+ photographs are supplemented with more than 50 art profiles and illustrations, all of which were created just for this new title in the Detail & Scale Series. Every squadron to fly the Demon is covered along with information about their deployments aboard aircraft carriers of the Atlantic and Pacific Fleets.

As with all books in the Detail & Scale Series, a special section is provided for scale modelers that reviews the model kits available of the Demon.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Detail and Scale is back and better than ever! 11 janvier 2014
Par Michael C. Benolkin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Detail and Scale is back and high-tech as well. Those of us who've been modeling for a few years (decades) will have one or more of these essential titles in our libraries to help understand the differences between aircraft variants of a given subject and how to make our own models more accurate. The problem with the 'analog' references were many: the author invariably left tons of material out of the book due to limitations of page count; great reference photos were mere postage stamps in final copy; and, once a title was released, it was finished.

Here is the first title in this new electronic series, the F3H Demon. The title is published in iBook (iPad/iPhone) and Kindle formats using the latest in ebook authoring tools. What does that mean to you?

You can use menu hyperlinks to jump straight to a section of interest

You can expand photos and drawings to full-screen

You can zoom in on details in photos and drawings for a closer look

You can search for specific text within the title

You can bookmark items of interest

You can highlight and annotate the book with your own notes

In this title, the author starts off with the history of radar and its employment with night fighters and interceptors from World War II into the 1950s. This is an essential strand of history as the F3H Demon was developed as one of the first radar-equipped fighters that could employ the first radar-guided missile - the Sparrow. Given the success of the Sparrow (eventually) and radar, the Demon's story should be rather uneventful, but such was not the case.

Coverage of the subject starts with the F3H-1N - while the aircraft and avionics were promising, the Westinghouse J40 engine was very unreliable leading to all F3H-1s to be grounded wherever in the world they were and never to be flown again. The Navy recognized the potential of the Demon and the story gets more interesting as a replacement engine is sought, so for all of you who wondered why the Demon didn't receive the J57 like most other aircraft of the day, the author provides some interesting insight.

Because this title is in electronic form, you receive all of that good information that might have been lost in hardcopy format. This title is 297 pages with over 340 photos and over 50 illustrations. Coverage includes:

Developmental History
Demon Variants
F3H Demon Pilot's Report 'Demon Daze'
A Demon Restoration
Demon Details
Squadrons, Deployments, and Markings
Modeler's Section

One aspect of these electronic titles that I really appreciate is that my iPad is the same size and weight no matter how many are loaded at any given time. This allows me the flexibility to access the information more interactively on the work bench and still allow me to read while on travel (waiting on flights, etc.). With all of the great information packed into this new interactive title, you're still able to purchase this at a very low price!

Definitely recommended!

I gave this book five stars because it continues the tradition of the Detail & Scale series print books for giving modelers and aviation fans the information they're looking for regarding specific aircraft. Specifically, for modelers, as the title indicates, "detail" - close-up photos of almost every area is shown in clear photos, with drawings and text explaining differences between variants, cockpits, external stores carried, etc. A nice historical section is also included with narratives by former pilots of what the Demon was like to fly.
With the changeover to the digital format, much more info and photos could be included. With an Ipad or Kindle Reader, it is portable and can be used on the workbench with normal care. Apps are available so it can be downloaded to your PC, as well.
Recommended to modelers and others with an interest in the U.S. Navy's F3H Demon series of carrier-based fighters of the 1950 -60 era.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent reference 18 avril 2014
Par Aleksandor51 - Publié sur Amazon.com

As a long time fan of the Detail and Scale series, I was delighted to see not only its return, but in digital format. This allows much more extensive coverage than the printed versions, though for a modeler that does present some challenges. It's no longer possible to keep the book open to a specific page for reference while building a model. However, with the digital version, desired pages can be printed and used in this manner.

The format is clear, with excellent historical summaries and superb photos. There are further releases planned, and anyone who is either interested in building a model of these subjects, or is just interested in the plane itself, should be very pleased with these books.

Bert Kinzey is justifiably famous for producing some of the landmark "detail" books on aircraft. With this foray into e-publishing he has taken that high standard up several notches in detail completeness, and magnificent color. The addition of extensive & highly detailed color diagrams by his colleague Rock Roszak is a real plus for this e-publishing genre. If you ever wanted to know anything about the Demon, don't miss this work...and look for his follow-on publications, starting with Grumman's "Cougar"!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 F3H Demon in Detail & Scale 2 février 2014
Par Mike Still - Publié sur Amazon.com

Before I bought this book, I'd already known that the F3H Demon had a less-than-happy career in U.S. Navy service. As good as the Detail & Scale line of books has been, this one was a real eye-opener. Even if you're not building a model of the Demon, the technical information, history and 'sea stories' in this book make it a fun read. For the modeler, it's a trove of info on airframe, armament, production and service details. One of the best among a great series of books
