looks really good,and going by the fact it's vol 1 can we expect more Abrams books in the future? the examples chosen for this volume are great but as with most modelling reference I'm sure somebody's favourites have been missed!

(I especially liked Jim's ghostly visage reflected in the glossy cover )

Hey Jim, thanks for the review!

Yes friends, more Abrams are coming: XM1, M1A1HC, TUSK, etc.
Models reviews, profiles, drawings, and more info in Vol.2 (due to the end of the year).

I ordered six for the store I manage a couple of weeks ago and we have one left on the rack.

A really good and in depth book, worth the money, and of course our AMPS and IPMS club members received a 10% discount off the retail price.
