In the Cockpit 2: Inside History-Making Aircraft of World War II Book


I recently purchased this book, In the Cockpit 2: Inside History-Making Aircraft of World War II, and want to pass along that this is a very good book for aircraft modelers, especially of course when it comes to the cockpits.

The publication is a real deal price wise, as it is a hardback, but the covers have a look and feel like an old leatherbound log book. The book is in color (fantastic color!) and only a few images are black and white, (a traditional documented WWII photo for instance). A bit of history is given with each aircraft photographed, and many of these planes are ONE OF A KIND. Meaning they are the only surviving plane in existance. Aircraft you will likely never see in real life.

If aircraft cockpits are your thing when it comes to building aircraft models, you will be looking at this book over and over. Many are common model projects, a few have probably not been in model form ever. But the popular aircraft model choices are well represented here.

The aircraft in this Volume II are: M6A1 Serian, Arado AR234 B2, P39Q Airacobra, P63A Kingcobra, B17G, B29 Enola Gay, Stearman N2S5 Kaydet, SB2C5 Helldiver, XP55 Ascender, SBD6 Dauntless, FM1 / F4F4 Wildcat, Focke FA 330A1 Bachstelze, FW190D9, FW190 F8, IL2 Shturmovik, N1K2JA Shinden Kai, Kellett XO60, KUGisho MXY7 Ohka, J7W1 Shinden, PBM5A Marina, ME262 A1A, A6M5 Zeke, F1 156 Storch, Nakajima J1N1 Irving, Nakajima KI115A Tsurugi, North American O47A, YC64 Norseman IV, P51D Mustang, SNJ4 Texan, P61C Black Widow, Sikorsky XR5, Spitfire HF MKVII, Sikorsky OS2U Kingfisher, Sikorsky XR4C.

Some of the cockpits are from restorations, but some are very well worn, the way I prefer the subjects. But the author points out in the book any objects not "official" or if a modern change has been made, and that accuracy is much appreciated to this reader

I recommend this book for modelers and aircraft fans alike.
