First published in September of 2017, we’ve now added Iain Ogilvie‘s review of the Roden kit, and some appendices at the rear of the book detailing available aftermarket items and reference books.
Being a digital publication means this kind of update is very easy to do, and we will continue to update all our books in this fashion any time an applicable new product is released, or we find an error somewhere.
This new update is free to download for anyone who has already purchased this book. If you have an account with us, simply log in and download a new copy of the book from your purchase history. Otherwise, the download link contained in your original purchase notification email should still be valid.
If neither of these scenarios applies to you, and you’d still like to download your updated copy, create a customer account here on the website, and then contact me so that I can associate your purchase with your new account. Once that is done, you can log in and download it from your purchase history.
It has come to my attention that the Birddog book contained a duplicate page, with page 96 being the same as page 95 with a different layout. My humble apologies for this error!
I’ve removed the duplicate page and updated the book on the website, so if you’ve already purchased and downloaded the book, the download link you have in your email inbox should be valid to re-download it. If this doesn’t work, please contact me directly and I’ll organise to get an updated copy to you.
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.
The book is available to purchase in PDF format for $15 (Australian) at the “Buy now” button below:
