Description of the book "Douglas F3D Skyknight":The F3D was designed as a carrier-based all-weather fighter aircraft. It saw service with the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps. While it never achieved the fame of the F-86 Sabre or other contemporary aircraft, it downed several MiG-15s as a night fighter over Korea with only one air-to-air loss. It also served as an electronic warfare platform in the Vietnam War.
The design, development and operations of these aircraft are described in detail, illustrated with many previously unpublished photos. Color schemes and markings are described and illustrated with full color profiles.
Scale PDF plans in 1/72nd and 1/48th.
Like most "Yellow Series" efforts, text ably traces aircraft design, development, deployment and disposition. But eye candy really makes this effort shine. Dozens of color and B&-W photos superbly supplement the study. Color plates beautifully illustrate Skyknight plumage. Tech-manual illustrations adeptly augment authenticity. And 1:72-scale drawings nicely capture Douglas' corpulent combatant. I utterly enjoyed MMP's colorful little compendium. Building a scale Skyknight? Make this little book your modeler's guide.
If you ever thought of doing a model of the Skyknight then this is the book for you PDF. It follows the development of the aircraft through each modification with an explanation of what was changed and why, a lot of pictures of the aircraft parked, in action, and color plates showing the markings for different versions of each...It is nice to know that there is a publisher like Mushroom Model Publications that is putting out detailed books that are obviously geared to the model builder.
