Kagero | Eurofighter Typhoon

This volume from Kagero (typical of the entire Monograph series), is predominantly color photos of the unusual (to me) Eurofighter Typhoon, showing various aspects of day to day operations, weaponry and maintenance scenes. While certainly not a walk around type reference, there are some detail type photos of the air-frame, weapons and whatnot, so an excellent choice for those that may be interested in adding some nice Typhoon reference to the ol' book collection, as I most certainly will be doing.
The Typhoon has already established itself as a worthy aircraft. The huge delta wing, flight affecting forward canards and twin jet engines, makes this a highly maneuverable aircraft indeed.
The artwork that is provided, is confined to mostly a couple of B&W plan/elevation views, as well as a couple of color profiles (on the back cover).
Obviously, kits are available in our scale, of the Typhoon, so building a representative one, as seen in this book, should prove very doable. I can't speak to the quality/accuracy of these kits, as I don't own one...yet.
As is clearly evident, the photos are quite superb.
For any and all fans of the Eurofighter, this book is just bound to please. One thing that caught me off guard, was the large size of this aircraft, which I had never noticed before.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d rate this book as a solid 10, no question about it. Topping out at 156 pages of Typhoon coverage, most all of which is in great color imagery, it is highly recommended. (Lots of "eye candy" here.)
My review copy compliments of Casemate Publishers. Thanks a ton to Casemate, it's an excellent piece of reference work, and one that will surely fill the bill for any aviation enthusiast/modeler that has a passion for the Eurofighter.
