Paper Planes: No. 2
Paper Planes: No. 2
by Michael Johnson
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars How not to build paper aeroplanes, 23 Jan. 2017
This review is from: Paper Planes: No. 2 (Paperback)
A good idea but quite frankly these are not easy planes to build. Base matter is paper thin, there are no tabs to help in construction, and the author recommends Cyanoacrylate glue. Not easy to use. If anyone wants to build real paper aircraft, go to Maly Modelartz, Polish 'Answer', even Schreiber. The Marcle Models website is a good start.


The First Home-Built Aeroplanes
The First Home-Built Aeroplanes
by Arthur W. J. G. Ord-Hume
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Passion for small planes, 9 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had not realised how much the author was intrinsically involved in the design / development of these aircraft. Tribute to him. I checked my spotter's references . Luton Minor FIR is recorded as first seen Luton August 1960. One that is missing is Jim Coates's G-AMAW. Obviously a book for the enthusiast, But the author transmits this in all his books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spain - recent history as tragi-comic cartoon, 2 Aug. 2015
This review is from: El arte de volar (Paperback)
Only lately published in English, this classic (and graphic) comic book parallels the author's father's life with that of modern Spain. A tale of hope (dashed) and passion (confounded). The background is tragic, but the hero retains a comic vein in the narrative. A gem.


The Hunters (Penguin Modern Classics)
The Hunters (Penguin Modern Classics)
by James Salter
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.83

4.0 out of 5 stars Airwar classic, 27 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A surprisingly low-key deft account of war from a personal viewpoint written in 1956 just after the events. Classy Fifties literary style a worthy Penguin Modern Classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great idea and it does make you think, 10 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I give this book a "worth reading" review. Great idea and it does make you think. Obviously the author has an agenda BUT it got me thinking about the meaning of "belief". An interesting and after all worthwhile approach to differing philosophies.


Trials of "Oz"
Trials of "Oz"

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars And Topolski's drawings are just so good., 10 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trials of "Oz" (Paperback)
I bought this book when it came out and foolishly let it disappear. Not the most interesting of reads but an icon of the age and worthy of a place on the bookshelf. And Topolski's drawings are just so good.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1948) as a child in the local library and it is difficult to find one better on the subject of ballooning, 10 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A gem. I discovered this book (ed.1948) as a child in the local library and it is difficult to find one better on the subject of ballooning. And CH Gibbs-Smith went on to research and produce definitive books on early aviation. Get this book if you are interested in the subject.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good book, better than other cigcard opuses. Commercialwise World of Books Ltd informed me immediately of a transit problem with the original purchase, Replaced rapidly by a another copy - magnificent. Highly recommended supplier who evidently have finger on pulse. Thank you so much.
