Model Art pubs. April 2004H/B
Comments: An unbelievable new book by Model Art. A fantastic publication by a veteran Navy pilot that covers extensively most (if not all) the equipment and the details of the uniforms of the Imperial Japanese Navy pilots. Hundrends of never seen before b/w vintage photos, color photos of original relics and hundreds of highly detailed color illustrations. It is really difficult to describe with words the amount of information in this book. Every tiny detail is thoroughly researched and covered. We only wish and hope to see more publications like this from veteran pilots. Sato Shigeo san was first assigned to Tainan Ku where he flew Zero fighter, then to Omura Ku with the Shiden-Tai, then to Tsukuba-ku with the 403 Fighter unit. Finished the war with the Himeji-ku. Sato Kunihiko san is his son and a modeler. An ABSOLUTE MUST!!!
