Two new publications were just released in Japan.
The first is a book entitled "KaigunSuijoki-tai" (Navy seaplane unit) and is a collection of articles written by veterans who flew seaplanes and flying boats, originally featured in old MARU magazine issues. All in Japanese and most interesting to those who can speak the language.
Size: 13X19cm, 344p, 52 b/w well-known photos, published by Ushioshobo Kojinsha, Sept. 2013, p/b.
The second is a reprint in paperback of the excellent photo album "TatakauZeroSen" by one of the most prolific Japanese authors WatanabeYoji.
The new "TatakauZeroSen - TaiintachinoShashin-shu" (Fighting Zero Fighter - Members' Photo Album), below, is published by Bungei Shunju, size: 18X25cm, 192p. 360 b/w photos, a lot of them not featured in any other publication.
The book is sold alone or accompanied by a brilliant Tamiya A6M2 in 1/72 and either version is highly recommended and should not be missed.
Both publications are available through our on-line store. Simply send us an email if interested for prices including postage etc.
