The Modern Hog Guide, 2nd Edition

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

***edit**

I was hoping to have The Modern Hog Guide in my hands by the end of this week, but it seems it is still stuck in US Customs being x-rayed. This delay is irritating, but happens about one out of every three times I have a shipment enter the US from the printing company. It looks like it will be another week, fellas.

sorry about that.

Back by popular demand, the Modern Hog Guide is now at the printers.  Like The Modern Eagle Guide's 2nd Edition, the 2nd Edition of the Hog Guide offers more/better coverage of all A-10s, but especially the older, pre-LASTE jets.  It also covers the recent upgrades to the jet since the original edition was published 10(!) years ago, such as the SATCOM, Scorpion HMIT, and AAR-47 system.

 

The 2nd Edition has 172 pages (compared to only 120 pages for the original release), and 1,013 full color images.  Nearly all of those images are new for this edition, with only a handful of repeats that are found in the original.

 

It's now at the printers.  Depending on their schedule, I expect it to be available by early May.

 

It's hard to believe it's been 10 years since the first Hog Guide came out!!

If/when I take preorders, I'll make sure I announce it on all the forums, the Facebook page, etc.

 

Thanks for the interest!

Nice to see a second edition.

I don't buy the first, not easy to find in France, no distributor.

I hope some SPang A-10 inside.

That's awesome Jake.....I'm not going to miss this one!  I have an extra copy of the first edition Modern Eagle guide and I thought I had a trade working for a copy of the first Modern Hog Guide but it fell through!  So really looking forward to this one!

Don't waste your time on the first edition.  It is far inferior to the 2nd Edition in every imaginable way.

Jake - why does it show free shipping and then when you proceed through the order process it bills you for shipping?

It's free shipping on orders over $100 for Domestic customers.

I'm waiting for an update from the shipping company to hear when the Hog Guides will return.  It should be any day now.
