Comments by the people who have our
book already in possession:
We are very proud of the received pictures below:
Harry Hillaker, father of the F-16, is enjoying our F-16 book
"Here are some pics I thought you might enjoy,
they are of
Harry Hillaker perusing your F-16 book! He autographed it
under his name on the credits page. The older gentleman
sitting next to Harry is Bob Widmer, Bob was Harry's boss
during the YF-16 days. The 3rd person in the blue shirt is
Buzz Chamblee, ex-USAF B-58 flight test pilot. Harry and
Bob also worked on the B-58 program."

Picked this up at the IPMS UK Nats today, and all
I can say is WOW! This has set a new standard for reference works
in my opinion. If you like Vipers, this is an essential addition
to your library. . . the old Verlinden Lock on can bow out honourably
First time I've ever come back from the IPMS nationals
without a single kit. . . but this book more than compensate!
Drewe Manton @ Great Britain
I have to concure with Drewe's comments and say go
and buy this book superlatives are not good enough for this volume
Amazing just what we modellers need!!!
John Wilkes@ Great Britain
I have now had the chance to look through the book,
and I must say I am most impressed. It is without doubt now the
benchmark of quality on how aircraft detail books should be published.
All colour pictures is a world first I believe, and totally appreciated.
The in depth study of each area of the aircraft makes this the
definitive publication for anyone wishing to build and detail
a scale model of any variant of the F-16.
Mark Salter @ Great Britain
It is just a great book that I have ever seen until
now concerning any info about an aircraft. The pictures are very
well taken; including every detail, just a book for a modeller.
Besides the price of the book is worth for it, I mean
the book deserves that price. The type that it has been printed
and the format of the book makes it last for a long time which
is another point of the good sides of the book.
For a comparison in my opinion it is better than most
of the Verlinden Lock On's and some Squadron Publications books.
I am looking forward for your other books concerning
about the other types, especially about F-15 Eagle or other modern
jets like Tornado, F-18 etc.
It is just a great service!
Thank you very very much !
Arkut Yuksel @ Turkey
Many thanks for the book which arrived yesterday.
It is superb and a
fantastic reference for modelers
David Morphew@ Great Britain
I received your book yesterday in excellent condition.
This is a GREAT book.
Daniel Soulaine @ Canada
Got the book today and it came in perfect condition.
I'm speechless about it !!!! It is hands down the best in-depth
book on any aircraft, tank, warship etc. I have ever seen! Besides
the pictures (almost TOO many in some places, but what the heck!),
Nico's clear and witty commentary really makes the book shine.
I'm sure you've thought of it already, but get a copy over to
Fine Scale Modeler ASAP.
Bruce Wilson @ USA
Your book is really very, very nice! IN fact I think
it is more or less
"the" definite pictorial work on the Fighting Falcon.
Marcus Hanke @ Austria
The book inside the parcel arrived in an
excellent condition because of your careful packing. I'm
stunned by the images and captions on every page of the book and
feel like getting rid of other F-16 references form my shelf.
Your hard work was revealed thoroughly form every single page
in this book. I have to say "You're the man, Danny",
keep on doing other books for us modelers. Following is my wish
list. Maybe you can consider one of them to be your next
subject. Mirage-2000, Mirage F-1, Mirage III/5, Tornado IDS/ADV/ECR.
Lin Bo Shiun (Stephen) @ Taiwan
Just like to tell you that the F-16 book I ordered
has arrived today
and it is in prestine condition!!! Thanks a lot. Looking forward
at the book, I have not even open the plastic bag yet......
Victor Kam @ Malaysia
The book arrived today in undamaged packaging. I have
only managed a brief
look at the contents and boy am I impressed!
It makes the Verlinden Lock-On book worthless!
The photographs are superb (almost as good as my own!)
Scale plans and
weapons diagrams very useful.
Gavin Mills @ Great Britain
This book is realy fantastic. Absolutly better than
Walk Around or Lock-On. I hope you will edit some more
Ales Sinkovec @ Slovenija
I just got it and all I can say is WOW!
I opened the package and spent next hour or so just
staring @ the pictures. Everything in this book is first class.
I enjoyed plethora of little details that show thinking
behind it (like, for example, little diagrams of F-16 in the top
corners of the pages with colored panels, marking the section
of the aircraft being illustrated). But these are details, the
book is printed on great paper, photos are simply phenomenal and
information you get is fantastic. Plus @ the end you have quick
(color) reference of missiles, external pods, bombs, and 1/48
and 1/72 drawings.
All I can say is: this is the best 1300 Belgium Francs
I spent. Thanks Danny and Nico.
Just another (very) happy customer, that knows for
sure what his next model is going to be :-),
Szczesny Brzozowski @ USA
G'day Danny received your book yesterday- you weren't
kiding about it being the penultimate f-16 reference book
IT'S FANTASTIC!!!!!!!, now if only the BAF flew F-15E's
Glenn Zoontjens @ Western Australia
The book arrived today in perfect condition.All I
can say is WOW, what a great book!!! The others dont even come
Jim Lemons @ USA
I just got my copy of the F-16 book......... Absolutely
A must for any modeler who likes the F-16.
OK then,what's next? A very nice job that should continue.
Emad F.Tabsh @ Beirut - Lebanon
The book is in perfect condition (I do mean PERFECT!), and even I haven't
read it closely yet, but it's .............amazing ! Superb !
Thumps up for
you ! I can't wait to bring the book to our fellow modellers.
Well done Danny ! You're THE MAN !
Alexander Sidharta @ Indonesia
Thanks, the F-16 book has arrived and is in A-1 condition.
It's a really top class book- loads of great photos in there.
It's a welcome addition to my F-16 library. By the way- I love
the little "map" figures in the corner of each page.
It really is a great book.
Rob Woodbury @ Australia
The book arrived in excellent condition. There was
one puncture spot on the outer box, but the inner two liners (and
the book) were undamaged. A very thorough and thoughtful job of
packing I must say, right down to that little piece of paper under
the tape on the plastic bag. Bravo!
I also have the old Verlinden Lock On book and, while
it is an invaluable resource, your new book has surpassed it by
a very wide margin!!!! My congratulations on your accomplishment
- your work is very much appreciated. The small F-16 icons on
the upper outer corner of each page showing which part of the
airplane is featured (on that page) is a clever and very helpful
detail. I like it. :)
Thanks again for the book.
Greg D Fieser @ USA
My F-16 book arrived today. It's the best walk-around
type of book I have ever seen. Congratulations. Do you have any
other plans about doing a book like this for other aircraft?
Kaan Gok @ Turkey
The book itself is everything I expected it to be,
the numerous close up pics are just awesome.
Ping Su @ USA
I have to say that it is the BEST photo reference
on the F-16 that I have seen to date! The coverage of the differences
in the cockpit between the A\A-MLU\C\D is very helpful, as are
the shots of the various parachute housings fitted to the F-16.
The walk-around detail photos are very helpful, since there are
usually multiple shots from varying angles that give a sense of
perspective to the area being shown. Throw in the photos of the
various pods,missiles and other ordanance, and this reference
is well worth asking price (which is very reasonable,I might add!)
Keep up the good work,
Jack Lewis @ USA
Got my book, and I can tell, it's the best detail
book on the Viper ever. Congratulations. Do one on the F-14 and
I'll have a smile the size of Texas.You can even charge my credit
card right now.
Jose Herculano @ Portugal
The book is outstanding. I like the full coverage
given to all aspects of the airframe, not just a couple of general
shots like some books. The idea of hilighting the airframe area
covered on the top corner of the page is a great idea - it makes
it so much easier to find the exact page I need. I only wish the
section at the end with the underwing pylons had some captions,
and that the weapons profiles had some sort of scale given.
But I'm just being picky - this is the best reference
book for a single airplane type I have ever bought. I think it
does set the standard for new books. I'm looking forward to your
next release - some ideas that sprung to mind were the Tornado,
F-15 and F-18 but I'm sure you have many ideas of your own. I
won't hesitat to buy your next book - as long as it's a jet! Congrats
on the fabulous book - your hard work certainly shows.
Sean Bratton @ Canada
I've only been able to spend a few minutes looking
the book over, but I must say I'm impressed with the selection
and quality of the photos. And the extra data, such as the various
weapons carried by the F-16, should be most useful to anyone modeling
Although I don't normally super detail my models,
this book should be a great help to those modelers that do.
Keep up the great work. I'll be looking forward to
your next publication.
Morris Duet @ USA
Just today afternoon, I saw it on my desk after came
back from a long meeting. And it suddenly glued me on my chair
for almost an hour to a very detailed viper book that I have never
seen before. You have achieved the highest level of detail where
those who interest in military aircraft, who are plastic modelers,
who want to build a home cockpit need to have one (or even 2 to
make sure that one will be kept in the safe place for a life time)
as their reference!!! Picture speaks louder than words, but this
book shouts louder than any F-16 reference I have ever knew.
