    And Telford IPMS (https://ipmsuk.org/calendar/scale-modelworld-2018/) too ... YES, that was the plan ;)

    But as it seems we won't take many of them with us to Zhuhai.

    For anyone interested: Closely following and complementing the two recent books on the Chinese Naval Aviation (April 2018) and the regular Air Force (due out in October 2018), with this third volume on the Army Aviation all three major PLA branches are covered.

    I must admit; I need to a bit nasty on a certain “unique” issue ;):p

    A more or less well known member at several forums from India asked me for a review copy of my “Modern Chinese Warplane” book, with the offer, it would surely be of interest in India as well and that he would publish a review – maybe even several – in return ....

    So, said, done ... in the meantime, several weeks have passed and now – after I asked him once again, what will become of his promise in return to the not quite cheap delivery to India – he answered not me, but secretly my publisher: In India, nobody wants a review on a book in which wrong maps showing India in the wrong borders were used or shown.

    Again, he gave neither me nor the publisher an explanation but now I found this - forgive me - funny scheme: :confused::eek:

    Although it is explicitly stated in the text that these territories are "controversial" and that the book "explicitly" shows the Chinese view of things, it seems to be irrelevant.


    What a kindergarten :cool:o_O

    One billion rupees? Yikes! He probably burnt the copy or put it in a shredder. Similarly, there are very strict laws in India when it comes to the India national flag - Link. Here in Sri Lanka also you get laws against disrespecting "this and that".

    This is in stark contrast to the USA where even burning the US national flag was deemed within the 1st amendment.

    Just saying it here Deino (I think I @ed you in my new member intro post) that I've successfully persuaded my library to order two of your newest works. Huge fan.

    The naval aviation one, since it's already published, has arrived and I've probably been the first one in the community to have read it. The PLAAF one should arrive soon too (early 2019 if I'm not mistaken).
