Description
"This is the first book to take a comprehensive look at the North American Harvard and its variants in Canada - the only country to produce, import and export large numbers of the type. Fifty thousand words of authoritative but readable text correct many myths and reveal a myriad of little-known facts. While "war stories" and reminisces abound, the four years of careful research by the authors ensure that the historian will not be disappointed. Profusely illustrated with over four hundred photographs, the majority never before published, this book will please aviation buffs of all varieties. Five-view sets of what are almost certainly the most accurate plans ever drawn of the seven major variants used in Canada are produced in the popular 1/72nd scale. These are complemented by professionally air-brushed profiles depicting paint schemes far beyond the expected "trainer yellow" and will certainly appeal to model builders." - inside book jacket
