SKU: BSS02 Category:


Written by master modeller Eric Galliers, this 132-page digital book shows you how he built his award-winning 1/32 scale model of Macaulay “Mac the FAC” Cottrell’s Cessna O-1 Birddog. Using the Roden 1/32 scale kit as a basis, Eric modifies it to represent Mac’s Birddog as he flew it in Vietnam in 1968.

The book also includes Mac’s recollections of his 47 years in the RAAF, along with his citations for the Silver Star and DFC for an action in Vietnam. We’ve also included an exclusive 53-page walkaround, featuring a whopping 95 photos by Rob Fox of Rob Fox Photography.

    Right then second time around for this brand which at this point can do nothing wrong in the aproach, layout and evacuation not to mention being a very user friendly E-book as well. Again just like the first offering as a modeller this works on every level, like my mind was read. To sum things up Kevin and Eric have produced another winner and I look forward to future offerings from KLP Publishing, well done.
