This new 114 page
softcover book written by Ra'anan Weiss & Shlomo Aloni and available from IsraDecal
covers the F-4E Phantom Kurnass in IAF Service.
This volume is Part 1. This is Publication #4 of their popular series
'Aircraft in Detail' and it is a book that is heavily devoted to pictures of
Israeli F-4 operations.
You get over 650
photos including 215 color photos.

These photos include day to day
operations including ground photos as well as in-flight photos plus many man y
photos of the IAF Phantoms in their shelters being serviced. The
walkaround section includes color close-up photos of the aircraft including
B&W cockpit photos Plus weapons photos...and there are allot of
weapons photos...pages and pages of weapons photos with descriptions on each
photo. From a modellers point of view, this is the type of book I'd like
to have handy if I was building a Phantom in Israeli markings. You also
get 1/72 line drawings of the aircraft as well as line drawings of various items
including the ejection seat, landing gear, weapons pylons, airbrakes and even
the instrument panels and side consoles.
All the photos are
identified by text (which is a strong point in my opinion) and there is also
text telling the story of the F-4 in Israeli service from it's original purchase
in the mid '60's up to operations in 1982. This book tells the story very
well but it is the hundreds of photos that are the focal point of this book.
This is a great book
to add to your IAF library or for any modeller with a passion or interest
in the Israeli F-4. You can buy this book directly from IsraDecal.
I would like to
