About the Book:

Between 1984 and 1994, Detail & Scale produced 24 titles in our Colors & Markings Series of books, but the series was discontinued because of limitations then existing in the printing business. With the advent of digital publications, this acclaimed series returns. Colors & Markings of U. S. Navy F-14 Tomcats, Part 1: Atlantic Coast Squadrons is the first in the new Colors & Markings Digital Series. The book covers the three primary color schemes used on the F-14 in detail, and provides enhanced coverage of every active and Reserve unit associated flying the Tomcat with the Atlantic Fleet, the Grumman Aircraft Company, and the various east coast Navy flight test units. Colors & Markings of U. S. Navy F-14 Tomcats, Part 1: Atlantic Coast Squadrons comprehensively covers this iconic combat aircraft with over 31,000 words of text, 725 color photos, 26 color profiles and 7 paint scheme diagrams.

Detail & Scale Colors and Markings Series

Digital Volume 1

Reviewed by: Rob Benson, IPMS# 44038

Thank you to Bert Kinzey and Rock Roszak for bringing back a tremendous resource for the modeler, this time in digital format.  Thank you to the IPMS Reviewer Corps for allowing me to test out this new and exciting method of researching colors and markings of my favorite jet of all time, the F-14 Tomcat.  A very significant plus of this updated version is that the entire history of the Atlantic F-14 squadrons through Tomcat Sunset is now available in a single publication.

Overview

This review of an exciting new format of a familiar product will be in two parts; 1) content coverage, and 2) how effective and useful the digital e-book format is from a modeler’s perspective.   I certainly would expect the first question a reader would ask is, "Why do I want an e-book format?"  I like reading through traditional books as much as anyone else, with the page-by-page discovery of storyline or new information.  I also have tons of books in my library, mostly residing on stoic-looking bookshelves.  This new publication format provides many advantages for the modeler.  I cannot imagine that this publication will not be a stunning addition to any aviation enthusiast’s digital library.

My initial reaction to the third Detail & Scale ebook is even more positive than my reaction to the two previous releases, Digital Volume 1, F3H Demon and Digital Volume 2, F9F Cougar.  There are many digital versions of print publications available, ranging from simple scanned images of typed pages to true multimedia blends.  This third digital volume from Detail & Scale is unquestionably positioned at the higher end of digital formats, with new material and excellent functionality.  I ran numerous what-if research test runs developing information about squadron markings and found those test-runs to be fast, effective, and efficient.

In direct contrast to the previous two digital releases from Detail & Scale, this third volume focuses on colors and markings of a specific aircraft and area of deployment.  Such an approach requires a large number of photographs, making a traditional reference book both large and expensive.  The digital reference book equivalent allows greater amounts of high-resolution images to be used at a much lower publication price and a more manageable size.  In other words, bench space doesn’t get filled by a coffee table book.   Furthermore, quicker searching and data collection are major bonuses.

The volume contains 481 digital pages and more than 720 high-quality photographs and images.  The authors drew on a pool of 40-plus contributors, many of whom are established USN veterans with direct F-14 experience.  The quality of the digital publication suggests that the digital delivery concept is the primary design parameter, retaining the cherished look and feel of the original Detail & Scale series and incorporating unparalleled search abilities.  

Reading a novel in e-book format, e.g., iBook, Kindle, Nook and so on, is generally a nice experience, with the advantages of portability, downloadable purchases, and reading in low light. In a reference book, these advantages are surpassed by the ability to search, add notes, screen capture photos from the text for annotation, and fingertip rapid access to information on your workbench without compromising space.

Best of all, the stellar quality of the traditional Detail & Scale series is uncompromised in the new Digital Series.  The new format builds on the excellence of the traditional format and includes many extra features.  I evaluated this copy in the iBook/iPad format, but I would expect the Kindle version to be similar.  At about $10.00, you can’t beat the price!

Content Coverage

The cover screen features the familiar and colorful Detail & Scale practice of showcasing the subject in color.  The cover plane is the CAG aircraft from VF-31 hooking the wire aboard the USS Forrestal in 1989.   On page v of the Front Matter section is an excellent description of how to use the iBook format on an iPad.  Also in this section, the revival and rebirth of the Detail & Scale series is chronicled, a storyline modelers seldom hear.  A brief introduction describing the research, development and scoping of the book gives the reader a great sense of what it take to produce a top-notch publication.  Additional and supplemental reference materials related to this publication are available on the Detail & Scale website listed above.

  • Chapter 1, Tomcat Paint Scheme:  The major paint schemes used by the Atlantic squadrons are well illustrated in this chapter.  Many excellent example photographs are included, and several color profiles with FS paint numbers effectively illustrate the differences.
  • Chapter 2, U. S. Navy Atlantic Fleet Squadrons:  Fifteen Tomcat squadrons have thorough histories, accompanied by photos showing key markings and changes through time and between aircraft.  The colorful variations in CAG aircraft are very interesting.
  • Chapter 3, U. S. Navy Atlantic Reserve Squadrons:  The multi-role reserve squadrons are described in this chapter.  As in the previous chapter, squadron histories are detailed, the various other duties described, and many pictures are included.
  • Chapter 4, Grumman Prototypes and Test Aircraft and Chapter 5, Atlantic Coast Test & Evaluation Tomcats:  Each of these chapters has the same operational histories and photograph abundance as the previous chapter.  If you interested in modeling unusual load-outs and other configurations, there is much information here.
  • Chapter 6, More from Detail & Scale:  As in Digital Volume Series 1 and 2, these pages may be characterized as trailers for upcoming digital volumes and promote a valuable resource website hosted by Detail & Scale.  If the F2H Banshee is on your project list, hold on for the next two digital releases, a 2-volume set is on the way!  I expect that these upcoming volumes will be just as good a resource as the first digital ones.  Make sure you have a bit of time on your hands when you visit the website; there is just as much research and sightseeing to be done there as anywhere else.
  • Content coverage summary:  In terms of content, this is an exceptional publication.  In addition to the tremendous wealth of information about the color and markings of Atlantic F-14 squadrons, this volume is well written with an engaging style.  The artwork is spectacular and the photograph resolution is superb.

Digital Format for the Modeler

My review arrived in the form of an emailed purchase code which was then entered into the iTunes Store download area.  The volume was ready to read and resident on my iPad in a little bit longer download time than typical, but there are a lot of large images! 

An excellent guide to iPad operations with this publication starts on page v.  The Apple iOS signature taps, finger swipes, and finger pinch motions are easy to learn and are much the same as many touch tablet systems.  The learning curve is a short bump to become proficient.  You will soon learn to move quickly throughout the text.

Once you learn the finger motions, you will discover that the double-tap that pulls down the Table of Contents title bar is very helpful.  On the left-hand side of the title bar are icons enabling you to return to the library (quit), find the table of contents (a chapter screen with sections), and locate a nice help screen for adding highlights and notes.  On the right-hand side of the title bar is a screen brightness icon, but best of all, there is a search icon and a bookmark icon.  I found both of these to be very helpful.  These features really aren’t conceptually different from marking up a traditional book but have significant advantages.

  • Highlighting can be done with different colors, perhaps for different topics of your interest.
  • Highlights can be easily changed or removed (ever try to erase those bright yellow stripes?).
  • Bookmarks may be added, removed or edited.

Taking screen shots or grabs can be very useful for specific planning.  Pressing the sleep/wake button at the same time as the home button will capture the visible screen.  This function is great for annotating and planning details.  There are many free drawing apps that can import an image and let you enlarge, mark up, or otherwise edit.  If you need to put some ideas together for detailing, you can digitally scribble on the photo!

An iPad has a very small footprint so it will take up minimal space on the bench.  All of your reference material is in one place, ready to use.  Several images of screen operations are included to supplement the many online tutorials that others have posted for iPad operations. 

I am overwhelming positive about this publication.  I found the Detail & Scale Colors & Markings Series Digital Volume 1 to be an exceptionally effective and efficient research tool.  But as mentioned in previous reviews of digital materials, a problem I do have is that digital publications force me to abandon an old tradition of having authors and illustrators sign their books!

Overall Recommendation

Colors & Markings Series Digital Volume 1 has my highest recommendation.  I can’t see how anyone can justify not having this publication if he or she has any interest in the F-14, whether for model building or for historical purposes.  I am certain that the same functionality of the iPad exists for the Kindle platform.  To my knowledge, this publication is not available in any formats other than the iBook or Kindle versions.  The ability to examine the colors and marking of the F-14 within and beyond the printed page, the abundance of color images, links to external resources, search functions, ability to quickly bookmark, highlight and add notes, combined with the inexpensive cost, make the Detail & Scale Colors & Markings  Series Digital Volume 1 an exceptional value.  This exceptional eBook is for all who appreciate the F-14 Tomcat.

Thanks again to the wonderful folks at Detail & Scale!  I am delight to see the Colors & Marking Series in digital form, and I’m sure I echo the thoughts of the modeling community in saying I hope to see many more of the Digital Series published.  Thank you again to the stalwart Reviewer Corps for your hard work in making these review opportunities happen!

U.S. Navy F-14 Tomcats Part 1 Book Review

By Michael Benolkin

Review

Detail and Scale is back with their first electronic title in their Color and Markings series: U.S. Navy F-14 Tomcats Part 1. This title follows their previous releases including: F3H Demon in Detail and Scale and F9F Cougar in Detail and Scale which are not only one of the best references for the these aircraft, but are also the best book titles I've seen using the various interactive features of the iPad and Kindle. What does that mean to you?

  • You can use menu hyperlinks to jump straight to a section of interest
  • You can expand photos and drawings to full-screen
  • You can zoom in on details in photos and drawings for a closer look
  • You can search for specific text within the title
  • You can bookmark items of interest
  • You can highlight and annotate the book with your own notes

As before, the authors throw off the shackles of conventional publishing including page counts and the limitations of printing color photos. If you can remember the original Colors and Markings of the F-14 Tomcats, all of the colorful examples of the F-14s that were assigned to east coast squadrons were condensed into 64 pages and most of those photos were black and white. In this new title, Bert Kinzey and Rock Roszak have made good use of the electronic publication as this title is over 500 pages and crammed full of great color photos and color profiles. Take a look at the summary differences between old and new:

F-14 Tomcat

You can see in the sample pages below that this is still the thorough Detail and Scale format, but there's lots more of it at your fingertips. What's more, my iPad is no heavier with 500 more pages of reference inside...

F-14 Tomcat F-14 Tomcat

Coverage includes:

  • Tomcat Paint Schemes
  • U.S. Navy Atlantic Fleet Squadrons
  • U.S. Navy Atlantic Reserve Squadrons
  • Grumman Prototype and Test Aircraft
  • Atlantic Coast Test and Evaluation Tomcats

Here is a good example of the power of electronic publications when the publisher knows what they're doing. Below is a photo of an F-14A from VF-14 wearing Bicentennial colors that was embedded in one of the pages. As the images above illustrate, the title is oriented to portrait mode and rotating the tablet won't change that BUT when you select a photo, it opens up into a larger view that can be rotated into a larger landscape view (below left). How many times have we wanted to get a closer look at a given photo to see a name or bureau number? I used the two-finger spread and enlarged the photo to its maximum size (below right) and I can read the bureau number. Nice!

F-14 Tomcat F-14 Tomcat

In all, seventeen squadrons are given full-color coverage showing their early high-visibility color schemes and how these evolved into the final low-visibility tactical schemes before these squadrons deactivated or transitioned into Hornets/Super Hornets.

Head over to Amazon or the iTunes Store and order a copy. This technology is also truly instant gratification as the title will download to your tablet on completion of your purchase.

Definitely recommended!

Colors and Markings of US Navy F-14 Tomcats...

By Robin Buckland

...a new E-book from Detail and Scale

Title: Colors and Markings of US Navy F-14 Tomcats...
Author: Bert Kinzey
Publisher: Detail and Scale Aviation Publications...

...Part 1: Atlantic Coast Squadrons - Digital Edition

This is something of a first for Detail and Scale Aviation Publications and also for me in this case.  The Detail and Scale series of books have been around for a good few years but now they have turned their hands to using the new publishing formats of E-books and picked one of my all-time favourite aircraft, the F-14 Tomcat for their first.  In printed books the cost of printing, especially in colour, has always been an obstacle in keeping production and therefore selling prices down to a reasonable level.  The original publications from Detail and Scale, though always excellent and especially handy for modellers, this always put limitations on what they could do.  Their early publications limited colour content to just 50 colour images, and in later title that rose to 100.  One of the advents of E-Books has been to remove these shackles and allow for full colour images and more of them.  This is evident in their first E-Book in their Colours and Markings series (they already have 2 in their other Detail and Scale series) which includes over 700 superb colour images as well as artwork showing the various camouflage schemes for the Fleet and Reserve squadrons based on the East coast of the USA, along with the Naval Air Test Centre and the prototype and test aircraft used by the manufacturer, Grumman.  The plan is that the next book in the series will cover those Tomcats used over on the Pacific coast.

The book starts by going over the 3 official variations in colour schemes that were used over the 30+ year career of the F-14.  From the colourful days of Light Gull Grey over a gloss white, which were a carry-on from the schemes worn on US Navy aircraft since the 1950's, after only 4 or 5 years the colours toned down to an overall Light Gull Grey.  Some of these aircraft retained a bit of colour, particularly on the tail markings, but even this was not enough and they moved on the the Tactical scheme with 3 shades of flat grey colour and marking in similar shades.  Each of these three official schemes are explained and illustrated with photos of examples to illustrate each one, along with colour artwork of each basic scheme.

Then the book moves through each of the Fleet Squadrons, giving the background and operational history of each unit, along with plenty of well captioned photos illustrating the different colours and markings worn by their aircraft while in service, and which are arranged pretty much in chronological order each time.  In VF-41 we get to the first combat use of the Tomcat, when aircraft based on the carriers Nimitz and Forrestal came up against Libyan operated SU-22 Fitters and the story of that encounter is included.  Then there is VF-84, whose black and white skull and crossbones tails became famous in 1980 when they featured in the film 'The Final Countdown' with Kirk Douglas and Martin Sheen.  Each of the Fleet Squadrons receives it's own section, and then the same for the Reserve units as well.  This is followed by details of the Grumman Prototypes and Test aircraft and then the Atlantic Coast Test and Evaluation aircraft based out of NAS Patuxent River in Maryland.  This include VX-23, the Strike Test unit.

The whole thing is not only attractive to aircraft enthusiasts, and Tomcat fans in particular, but for the modeller this is simply a gold-mine of reference and inspiration.  There the detailed photos of the colours and markings worn by the aircraft themselves over the years, including the weapons they carried, but with pictures on land based flight lines and particularly on carrier decks there is so much more colour that can add interest to a model and diorama.  There are the colours of the decks with the catapults, jet blast deflectors and tie down points, but equally the colourful deck tractors, fire tractors and the multi-colour jackets and helmets of the deck crew that surround the aircraft while they are on deck or being prepared for launch.  The addition of these accessory figures can really bring life to a model.

With all this super content filling over 450 pages  the E-Book also has the great benefit of the ability to see the quality of the colour images and to see them large and clear on a laptop screen or on a full size PC monitor.  Add the ability to zoom in on each image you can really get to see very clearly even more detail in the images than you could possibly do in a conventional paper printed book.  While this is the first reference book of this nature I have taken a close look at in electronic format, I find myself quickly getting converted into liking this modern format, and the extra scope it has provided for the publishers in being able to offer some thing of this quantity and quality at a reasonable cost.  Recommended and I am looking forward to seeing what they do for part 2 on the Pacific Coast squadrons when it is ready.

This is available in both iBook and Kindle formats. These are set up for easy use on Tablets but, as I did, you can also get a Kindle app for PC (and it is free) and run it on a laptop or desktop.  I have used this on my desktop and have to say it works a real treat.

U.S. Navy F-14 Tomcats : Detail & Scale Series –
Digital Volume 1

Review by Geoff Coughlin (July 2015)

In Detail & Scale book for iPad, iBook, Kindle and Mac
Authors: Bert Kinzey and Rock Roszak
iPad download reviewed here – price $9.99
Review by Geoff Coughlin (July 2015)

Our sincere thanks to Bert Kinzey and Rock Roszak at Detail & Scale for supplying our download – you can see a lot more at their website and buy the downloads at the Detrail & Scale websire.

Introduction

If you have read my first two reviews of these amazing digital volumes for the F-3H Demon and F-9F Cougar in the Detail & Scale Series you’ll know how good these new digital books are and now we have the first in a new series covering colours and markings – quite stunning and I do not say that lightly at all.

At last, what we have is a major publisher specialising in modelling reference books (and others like MMP) that has seen the huge value and potential of the Internet – the ability to offer you the modeller so much more for far less money than if you buy a paper book or magazine. This is exactly what SMN is all about and continues to be since we launched nearly 6 years ago (at the time of writing this review)!

This addition to a growing series of fantastic resources

The renowned Detail & Scale Series is now complimented with a wholly new series, kicking off with this title,Colors & Markings of U. S. Navy F-14 Tomcats, Part 1: Atlantic Coast Squadrons. The book covers the three primary colour schemes used on the F-14 in detail, and provides enhanced coverage of every active and Reserve unit associated flying the Tomcat with the Atlantic Fleet, the Grumman Aircraft Company, and the various east coast Navy flight test units. Colors & Markings of U. S. Navy F-14 Tomcats, Part 1: Atlantic Coast Squadrons comprehensively covers this iconic combat aircraft – this is what you get:

  • Over 31,000 words of text
  • 725 color photos
  • 26 color profiles and 7 paint scheme diagrams.

TheDigital Detail & Scale Series now continues with this new title focusing on the famous F-14 Tomcat, the most comprehensive and detailed book ever published on this iconic aircraft from the Grumman Ironworks.

Colors & Markings of U. S. Navy F-14 Tomcats, Part 1: Atlantic Coast Squadrons is the first in a completely new series with a focus on paint schemes, colours and markings for the Atlantic Coast Squadrons.

It features:

What do we think?

Let me put some more meat on the bones…

You can see by the stats above that what you are getting is a book that’s special – highly professional in content and production that ‘works’ exactly as it should and is simplicity itself to download. As soon as I downloaded the book to my iPad, there it was sitting on my shelf in iBooks – great and a double-tap and I was into it.

The F-14 Tomcat is covered in excellent depth with many useful captions and notes highlighting the differences between the different colour paint schemes that will need to be considered when you making your chosen model. There are always details that cause the kit manufacturers to get confused and produce kits that will need correcting and modifying to generate an accurate model and all of these revisions are clearly illustrated in the book – excellent!

Photographs and profiles

The quality of both is extremely high and this add greatly to the title and the addition of supporting photographs always helps to illustrate what is being discussed.

In summary…

I thought that the Detail & Scale title was very good but this new e-book on Colors & Markings of U. S. Navy F-14Tomcats, Part 1: Atlantic Coast Squadrons far exceeds that – incredible, especially given the price. This is the best book I have seen in a long time, by any standards a stunning reference for the type and a genuine one-stop-shop for anyone interested in the Tomcat and the Atlantic Coast Squadrons that flew it. You can just have your iPad or Kindle propped up in front of you when working at you bench and merrily dip into and out of all the different sections depending on what you are working on.

The price is spot on in my view and you just have to think about the $9.99 it will cost you versus the outstanding quality and quantity of content. Simply stunning and highly recommended.

If I were you, I would also go and visit the Detail & Scale website at www.detailandscale.com. There are numerous photograph sets of a variety of aircraft on display from the Detail & Scale collection. Geoff Coughlin, Editor
