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. For the modeler, you'll see lots of good details and color information for replicating these great examples. 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!

You can purchase this reference or any of their other photo CDs directly from their website or via email

My sincere thanks to Aero Research for this review sample!
