B-29 Superfortress Walk Around

B-29 Superfortress Walk Around Book Review

By David L. Veres

Date of Review June 2012 Title B-29 Superfortress Walk Around
Author Dennis M. Savage Publisher Squadron/Signal Publications
Published 2012 ISBN 978-0897476539
Format 80 pages, softbound MSRP (USD) $18.95


Latest in Squadron/Signal’s growing series, B-29 Superfortress Walk Around provides a vast amount of vital modeling minutiae on Boeing’s legendary bomber.

Color coverage chiefly details the impeccably restored 44-61975 “Jack's Mack” – centerpiece of the 58BW Memorial at the New England Air Museum near Hartford, CT.  Author Savage masterfully and methodically maps key aircraft features – including crew stations, gun positions, props, power plants, and landing gear.

Looking for prop logos?  Ordinance essentials?  Paint particulars?  Internal or external, they’re likely here!

Over 210 informative images – including period photos – supplement text.   Add 12 color profiles, line drawings, and Superfortress survivor list.  And this handy, helpful tome excellently augments any B-29 model project.


My sincere thanks to Squadron/Signal Publications for this review sample!
