Book Title F-22 Raptor in Action

The latest 'In Action' covers the F-22 Raptor with a brief overview of the aircraft's development, it's systems, power plants and weapons followed by lots of pages (72 in total) of Raptors in action. Some great aerial shots and some very useful walk round/pre-flight activity shots too. And all in colour ! This is a great book for anyone wanting to pick a Raptor to build - the huge variations in appearance of this fighters paint scheme (or is it an aura ?) are well illustrated and the modeller should be happy to think 'mine is going to look like that one'.  Recommended for Raptor fans.

Not wanting to give away my age but it was Lou Drendels F-15 in Action book that made me a committed USAF model builder and this latest book helps keep that flame alive !
