Nice review Randy.

Definitely a reference book I could use. It has 475 b&w photos so it'll come in handy for the 3 kits I have yet to build.

As you said, really a very useful book for the historian and the modeller.
By the way I would like to know your opinion about the following,
in the pages 72, 73 and 77 (upper photo) there is pictured the same kübel but, in the first photo (p.72) the caption reads that it´s painted only in Dunkelgrau; in the next (p.73) it reads that is painted in Khaki gelb (it means RAL 8000 maybe?).
In the third photo you can see clearly that the interior color remains dunkelgrau, but in about the sand colour I don´t know if it is RAL 8000 or another paint used before the Heer introduced the RAL 8000 in march 1941. What do you think?
