With the plethora of new 1/35th (and 1/72nd) vehicle kits coming out for modern USMC vehicles, much of the information is rather dispersed... Therefore, it's good to see more photo-documentation on the ròle of the USMC and in particular their vehicles in Operation Iraqi Freedom...

As there are stories all over the forums of the various releases announced at Nuremeberg, the idea of this story is to summarize (with the help of the lists produced by (I.P.M.S.

The key to a succesful book on modelling is primarily accessibility. Far too many books are 'pitched' at 'expert/master' level, to be of much use to the 'average' modeller.

The coming months will see a significant expansion of these useful books...
