Geoff Coughlin, author of our recent title Building the British Phantoms Volume One, has been beavering away its follow-up, entitled Building the British Phantoms Volume Two, oddly enough! Geoff has been in touch with some news about his progress, which I thought I’d share as something of a teaser:
I just wanted to give you a heads up on this next volume as I’m really excited – it is better by some way than Volume One.
I really just wanted to say that Volume Two stats so far are:
• 306 photos – excluding all the model builds
• 11 model builds covering all three scales: 1:72, 1:48 and a great conversion of the Tamiya F-4J into an FGR.2 – no mean feat by the contributor!
• 11 model gallery entries
• 26 profiles from Simon Hill
So a bit of an epic coming for Volume two. I hope you’ll like V2 as much as I do – a great Foreword too by Dave Gledhill former RAF navigator.
So there you have it, straight from the horse’s mouth: Volume Two is going to be epic! (And no, Geoff, I’m not calling you a horse!)
Volume One has been one of our most popular and successful titles, so if you haven’t checked it out already, I can only encourage you to do so.
