Hey all,
I'm interested in getting this book and wanted to know if anyone has it?


If so what afv's are covered and what's your general thoughts of the book?

While I have not yet bought a copy, I have seen lots of George Bradfords work in the old AFV-G2 magazine. Absolutely excellent! I only have had one chance to buy that book (at a Barnes & Nobel) but didn't have the cash at the time. Well worth the investment if you need accuate scale drawings.

if you want to scratchbuild modern vehicles it is great, if you do not want to build any it may be a bit boring for you.

My Dad has a bunch of books in this series. They are nice 3 way drawings with scales depicted so you could use them for scratchbuilding.

I have the Allied WW2 book and it is quite good. Minimal text but many line drawings of tanks in front, rear top and side views with scale (generally 1/72) shown.

It covers a mix of vehicles each from each decade, starting with the post WWII 1940s and going through the 1990s. Many primary types from NATO and the WARPAc are covered along with a smattering of interesting types from other nations, and a few prototypes. It doesn't include every Soviet or NATO MBT, or APC, but a lot of them. Some interesting types like the Rooikat, Mamba, Type 87 RCV, IKV91, T34/122, XM808, AMX-50, etc are covered.

A great book for the scratch-builder/converter. Not much to read as it is all drawings, no real text.

Thanks all. To those who have it,do you happen to know if it has plans for T-72,80,90 and Israeli Magach 6 with reactive armor?

if you google him George Bradford still sells his plans individually . I am Pretty sure he didn't do those Russian tanks .

It has the T-72,Magach 6B, but not the T-80 or T-90.
