Let me begin by saying that this latest "In Action" series publication is (in my humble opinion) the finest to have gone to press to date. Further, I have had the pleasure of knowing Larry Davis for more than 40 years and I will not hesitate to tell him that this is his best effort yet.

A full 72 pages of black and white, color photos and profiles as well as line detail drawings make this one of the most desirable I've seen on the subject. Artwork for the cover is by Dan Greer and line drawings are by Matheu Spragains and are exceptionally well done.

The coverage in this publication extends to the "Thunderstreak" and "Thunderflash" as well as the "Thunderjet". Sample scans have been included with this review, but it's only a small portion of the outstanding information contained within. The timing, at least for me, was excellent in that I am finishing up a full build review of the 1/32nd Hobby Boss F-84 to be published in the IPMS/USA journal and this book is a Godsend when it comes to reference for a review. Again, many thanks to Squadron/Signal for the review sample.
