ISBN: 978-83-66549-68-5 (Softbound)
While cockpit/interior books (in general) are not a new concept, this volume takes (to me) a bit of a new approach here. Using a combination of actual photos, along with several instrument panel drawings, in color, provides a pretty neat batch of material to the enthusiast/modeler, giving a lot of eye candy to the aviation enthusiast or modeler alike.
The inclusion of illustrated tables of the specific instruments in each location, is a real nice touch, and something not necessarily so frequently seen.

Typical Photo/Illustration Excerpts
This publication is printed on good quality glossy paper, which I also consider to be a big plus in its favor, adding a great additional dimension to the overall appeal of the volume.
Containing 44 pages, I see this volume as a definite keeper, rated well for the approach and execution of the concept.
My review copy compliments of Casemate Publishers. Thanks a ton to Casemate, it's truly a unique volume, rated highly for subject content and novel approach, and one that I'll most certainly be proud to add to my own personal library.
