Classic Propliners Part 2 Photo CD Review
|Date of Review||October 2009||Title||Classic Propliners Part 2|

Aero Research has released their next photo reference CD, this covering a variety of commercial turboprop aircraft. This title wasn't originally on their release list, but they've clearly acquired quite an impressive collection to publish.
Once again I used my image browser to scan through the aircraft on the disc and I was quite impressed with the selection of aircraft. In this release, there are a nice variety of (mostly) piston-powered airliners that were still in service in the late 1960s and into the early 1970s. A few of these photos are newer than that, but the vast majority are from a time that is getting more difficult to find materials for.
The line-up of aircraft on this disk cover the following aircraft types:
- ATL-98 Carvair
- Boeing 247
- Boeing 377 Stratocruiser
- Boeing 377 Mini-Guppy
- Br.763 Provence
- Bristol 170
- Convair 340
- Convair 440
- Convair 580
- L-049 Constellation
- L-749 Constellation
- L-1049 Constellation
- L-1649 Constellation
- Martin 404
- Viscount 700
- Viscount 800
For the modeler, you'll see lots of good details and color information for a trip down memory lane or perhaps to tackle a scale airliner kit for a change of pace. For the enthusiast and modeler alike, you can browse through a nice variety of high-resolution images of some very nice aircraft!
This is a nice selection of imagery that you won't find available in such clarity and size. This title is recommended!
My sincere thanks to Aero Research for this review sample!
