I still have a few copies of my "fantastic book" (thank you, thank you).
If you're interested, you may email me for details at bradh@kumr.lns.com
and I will get back to you.
Sorry, no Update 13; Windsock more than compensates for my pathetic
updates, but edition three is not out of the question. It's just these
pesky manufacturers keep putting out so much new stuff, I can't keep up!

As a reference book, it is a bit out-dated,going up to only 1986, so it
doesn't have any of the umpteen new companies; but it's still pretty
accurate for most of the old stuff like Aurora and Airfix and Revell.
Thanks for the kind words. This may be the incentive I need to get back
into the thick of WWI kit research.
