I wonder how it will compare with "Air Force Legends: Northrop YF-23 ATF "by Paul Metz?

The book is exactly what it says it is;many pictures of the YF-23. Some I haven't seen before. It's isn't about the design and development of the YF-23 like the Metz book. There was only one "ATF" image I hadn't seen before and it was from Vought.

If you like pictures of the YF-23, I highly recommend it. It does have the same engineering drawings in it we've seen before, which is nice for reference in this book.

I have the Paul Metz book and am building both PAV 1 and 2 with the Collect-Aire and Hobbyboss kits and so I have been in need of reference photos, particularly details to help me rebuild cockpits etc.

When you suggest it is a great compliment to the the Metz book does that mean it has lots of different photos or are they essentially the same photos? As it's quite expensive I'm asking because I'm not sure if it would be any more use than the photos in the Metz book.

Thanks in advance.
