The Publication

This publication is a follow up from the author’s Guide #6, Building the Williams Bros. Curtiss C-46A Commando in 1/72 Scale. To get the complete information, it will be necessary to obtain a copy of both publications.

This publication gives a brief statement on the development of the C-46A, and the fact that the Williams Bros. kit is the only one available in 1/72 scale, that is, if you can find one. The author has collected a large selection of period photos of the C-46A in production and in service with the U.S.A.A.A.F. Although the photos are all in black and white, and there is no color information presented, the photos provide enough information for you to build any number of models of the C-46A. These are only in USAAF markings. There is no information on the C-46A in foreign or civilian service. There is no coverage of later models.

After the introduction, there are several pages of small photos, larger examples of which are published afterwards on single seats along with extended explanations. There are a lot of detail photos showing the aircraft’s interior, and quite a few shots of C-46A’s in the factory under construction. The photos are of very high quality, and can be easily reproduced and printed on your computer.

If you are interested in the C-46A, this e-book is worth having. Highly recommended.
