The unit badges are included and are a wealth of information for a decal company. All of your reference material is in one place, ready to use. On page iv of the Front Matter section is an excellent description of how to use the iBook format on an iPad. I no longer buy hardcopy references if a digital version is available. Of course, you'll want the F-102 in Detail and Scale title to assist with the colors and details in the cockpit, weapons bays, etc.
Discussion of the markings, as well as, the colors of the aircraft are included in this section. I was curious to see if this identified the unit that one Lt George W Bush flew the F-102, and that's in here as well. This Page Created on 22 November, 2017 Last updated 22 November, 2017 Back to Back to. My sincere thanks to for this review copy. An odd contrast of camouflage and high-visibility orange can be seen on some of the now-drones. There are many digital versions of print publications available, ranging from simple scanned images of typed pages to true multimedia blends.
Thirty-two interceptor squadrons make up the subsection topics, each subsection with a brief history, unit insignia, and images of Delta Daggers in unit livery. With the advent of digital publications, this acclaimed series has returned, and this second volume in the series shows the benefits of digital publishing at its best. The inclusion of the air to air refueling probe under Projects Thirsty Camel and Hot Spice are interesting. Another benefit of the digital format is the ability to blow up pictures with the touch and to print the photos on your computer should you choose to. The book covers the three primary color schemes used on the F-102 Delta Dagger in detail, and provides coverage of every operational squadron that flew the famed Deuce. I was able to guess what Deuce squadrons might have been flying at those airshows long ago when I was much younger.
Head over to Amazon or the iTunes Store and order a copy. All the photos are captioned and capable of being enlarged. I found both of these to be very helpful. Followers of this series will recognize Rock's name as he had co-authored and illustrated the previous titles in the digital series, but he is also the one who transformed the once-hardcopy titles into fully interactive digital references that have the same look and feel in Apple's iBook format and Amazon's Kindle format. Content coverage summary: I found the volume's organization to be excellent.
The new format builds on the excellence of the traditional format and includes many extra features. With the advent of digital publications, this acclaimed series has returned, and this second volume in the series shows the benefits of digital publishing at its best. Thank you again to the stalwart Reviewer Corps for your hard work in making these review opportunities happen! If my tablet or computer gets damaged or lost, I can simply download the digital volumes to the replacement devices. The digital format takes some getting used to but there is an instructional portion of the iPad version on how best to use it. Whatever device you want to download it onto it will be there whenever and wherever you need to see it. There are so many to choose from and Rock has provided first class highly detailed colour illustrations of them all! To the best of my knowledge, this publication is not available in any formats other than the iBook or Kindle versions at this time. The list of contributors and sources fills half a page, a testament to the thoroughness of the volume.
This exceptional eBook is for all who appreciate the F-102 Delta Dagger. Navy Pacific Fleet Squadrons: Fifteen Tomcat squadrons have thorough histories in this section, accompanied by photos showing key markings and changes through time and between aircraft. A wide variety of color schemes and markings may be found here, reflecting the pride of each state. Here is where the inclusion of the color photographs comes to be highlighted. The overall quality of the photos is excellent. They also provide a direct link to that unit in the chapter. This monumental work by Rock Roszak is a true pace setter.
This is the Colors and Markings of the F-102 Delta Dagger and is designed as a companion for the F-102 Delta Dagger in Detail and Scale released earlier this year. I entered the code into the iTunes Store download area, and the volume was ready to read and resident on my iPad in less than 2 minutes. The third chapter covers the F-102 as part of the Alaskan Air Command, where it guarded the northern approaches against Russian bomber aircraft. With the advent of the digital books this is even more true than before. There are many free drawing apps that can import an image and let you enlarge, mark up, or otherwise edit. Make sure you have a bit of time on your hands when you visit the website; there is just as much research and sightseeing to be done there as anywhere else.
Thank you to Bert Kinzey and Rock Roszak for continuing to bring back a tremendous resource for the modeler, in a digital format. I appreciate the ability to look for a particular aircraft at a particular time. If you need to put some ideas together for detailing, you can digitally scribble on the photo! Colors and Markings of the F-102 Delta Dagger Placing your coursor over the slideshow image will pause the slideshow. Overview This review of an exciting new format of a familiar product will be in two parts; 1 content coverage, and 2 how effective and useful the digital e-book format is from a modeler's perspective. Included in this section is the use of the Deuce at the end of its career as a target drone. As in the previous chapter, squadron histories are detailed, the various other duties described, and many pictures are included. I am sure I echo the thoughts of the modeling community in saying I hope to see many more of the Digital Series published.
Review Detail and Scale Publications is back with another digital title, and the second in their Colors and Markings Series since going digital-only in their publications. In terms of content, this is another exceptional publication. The Air National Guard were the last units, besides drone targets to use the F-102 on operations. The new artwork is spectacular, the photograph resolution is superb, and the depth and variety of markings and color information make Digital Volume 2 invaluable. The download time was a little bit longer than typical, but there are a lot of large images! I love the format, and the learning curve is worth it.
