by Bert Kinzey

First published in 1979, this new edition is almost a completely new publication with many new features. Most noticeable is an account of the F-14's first use in combat in the downing of two Libyan Su-22s over the Gulf of Sidra. Detail and Scale was fortunate in getting Lt. Larry Muczynski, one of the pilots who downed the Su-22s, to write, in his own words, his account of he Libyan incident. Other new features include coverage of the TARPS reconnaissance pod, more coverage of F-14 weapons, color photos of the open cannon bay, more cockpit photos, and an update of the new models. General details are shown in a walk around, while specific coverage is given to the landing gear, intakes, external fuel tanks, engines, glove vanes, tail hook, ejection seat, cockpits, cannon, and armament, Five new 1/72nd scale drawings are also included.

I just really like Squadron books. Recommend for any scale modeler.
Great book. Wonderful source of information for the F-14. Would definitely recommend.
Great book, nice photos, great model reviews, good technical data, very useful reference book in a small package. Highly recommended.
Really nothing special about this older reference book. What I truly despise about the Detail & Scale books that Kinsey authored is he never hesitates to interject his political views into the narrative. Other D&S books written by different authors are much better. The model kit review section contais more Kinsey crying and whining. Most of his reviews are in-box reviews, not build reviews. In-box reviews are useless at best. And he obviously doesn't like the Tamiya company, at least not back in the 80's.
For the amount of pages,an excellent reference for scale modlers.only thing missing was revised reviews including the Hasegawa and hobby boss kits.
