So what is the story with the Modern SLUF?

Recommended Posts

I've been patiently waiting...for a couple of years now. I've got a Hasegawa kit with '81 Gunsmoke markings that I've held off starting until I've got that book in my hands.

Now we've got updated reprints of the F-15 and A-10 books...but not a peep about the SLUF. When/if can we expect to see the SLUF book on sale?

We don't have a reprint of the A-10 book, but it is coming.

I finished the SLUF Guide page layouts yesterday. I'll spend the next week or so proofreading and cleaning it up, and then it'll be off to print.

I offer my services as proof reader. Cheap and will sign any non-disclosure you want. I'm reading your Early Viper Guide and have come across a few typos. (There's an Edwards AFB in Florida???) Believe me, I know how difficult proof-reading ones own work can be.

I feel bad for Jake honestly, everytime I open up this forum for his company it just seems like everyone adds more pressure on him than is honestly needed. As hungry as I am for this book as well, cut the guy some slack already.

Whiskey,

Ed,

Hey, Ed. The Modern SLUF Guide is officially at the printers!! I just sent it so I haven't yet gotten a schedule from the printing company. I'll update as I get news.

Nah, it's all good. I've been promising this book now, for what, 3 years? I totally understand where the impatience is coming from, so long as everyone understands that nobody is more impatient than me. It's just been a lot more difficult getting quality images of a jet that has been out of the US inventory for 25 years than I expected.

Great to hear! I'm not good at math, but I don't know where you're getting 25 years. They just retired them like yesterday. I was there.

Yes HAF A-7s were only recently retired but USN and USAF (ANG) Corsairs were retired in '91 and '93 respectively, and early A/B USN models have been gone much longer than that. Since the US was by far the largest operator of the A-7 it is understandable that finding quality images of these jets in service is difficult.

He was kidding, Greg. He used to work A-7s with the Ohio ANG. I think he meant that it doesn't seem like 25 years ago.

Any updates on a printing schedule for the SLUF guide?

Rob

Sorry, I've been out of town and missed. The SLUF Guide is due mid October.

With that in mind, I guess we can't expect a "Modern A-6 Intruder Guide" any time soon?

It is at the printers.  ETA of late November.

 

I posted details on the Reid Air Publications Facebook page last month while the ARC forums were down.
