saw a pic of the B-36 in a 1990's Combat Aviation book by Popular
Mechanics. with the outer wings removed and all engine panels up with
mechanics working on it. nice pic. Looking for more.
Looking for something that has pics and not too deep of text for
starters for the B-36 and F4. Would the Squadron series be the way to
start? don't want to break the bank on this little venture...
thx - Craig
Some of the best B-36 video from that movie is on You Tube. Just do a search
for B-36 on You Tube to find it. There are several other good B-36 videos
there that I'd never seen before too.
As far as F-4 stuff what are you (the OP) looking for exactly? There are a
ton of F-4 Phantom books out there, each with its own features to
recommend it. Are you looking for photos? A history? A walk-around? War
stories? Modeling guide? USAF? Navy? Foreign?
For walkarounds, I definitely recommend the Lock-On series. They did one on
the F-4E and one on the British Phantoms which include the FG.1, FGR.2 and
F-4J(UK). Squadron just did a Walkaround on the F-4E but I don't have it yet
so I don't know how good or accurate it is. The older Detail & Scale books
were okay, but suffered from too many black and white photos (not
particularly good for modelers trying to use the right colors in their
models) and quite a few errors in the text and photo captions.
For photo books, there are a number of good ones. The Detail & Scale
Colors & Markings series has several good F-4 books wit plenty of good
photos. You could also join our F-4Discussion group on Google, we have
several people (myself included) who frequently post some darned nice
