It's 25,000w compared to my Fw 190 issue of Aviation Classics, which was circa 85,000w. As such, there wasn't room to give that much detail. It does include drawings of the low-wing monoplane version of the Fw 159 though, new profile artwork and a development history based on original documentation.Will you cover pilot test reports? Spinning characteristics?
This is where the difference in format becomes apparent. AC26 Fw 190 is the contents of a 200-page fully illustrated book in a 132-page magazine format. The new Fw 190 book will be 90 to 100 pages with less content but the format - thicker cover and pages - and different distribution network means a higher price.Dan, you wrote that the new one will have approx. 25,000 words while the Aviation Classics had 85,000. The old one had 132 pages, so how many will this new one have since the price is also higher?
It is a softcover, but not as soft as a magazine cover.Besides, Morton's ad claims that the Fw book is softcover.
