This bundle brings together our first two books by Eric Galliers, with a common theme of celebrating the contributions of two fine RAAF airmen—K.J. “Brick” Bricknell, and Macaulay “Mac the FAC” Cottrell.
Building Brick’s Sabre in 1/32 Scale
In Building Brick’s Sabre, Eric modifies the Italeri 1/32 F-86F kit to the Avon-powered configuration employed by CAC-built RAAF Sabres, to produce an exquisite replica of Brick’s Sabre as he flew it in 1963.
The book also includes anecdotes from Brick himself, from his time flying the CAC Sabre with the RAAF, along with 37 walkaround photos of the real thing, taken by Mark Jessop and Peter Chrismas, of Aviation Spotters Online.
This book is a 104-page downloadable PDF. All quoted prices are in Australian dollars.
Building Mac’s Birddog in 1/32 Scale
Building Mac’s Birddog sees Eric take the Roden 1/32 scale O-1 Birddog kit and modify 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.
