New Schneider Trophy book

Postby schneiderman » Mon Oct 29, 2012 6:26 pm

All,

Currently at the printers and scheduled to be published around mid November by Fonthill Media is this new book describing around 100 Schneider racers and projects in detail with each illustrated by a 3-view drawing at 1:72 scale. I wonder who wrote it ;). Available directly from the publishers and all the usual book dealers.

I'm on Santa's "Do not call" list until we get out of the bankruptcy we're in, so no joy there either. :(

Hi everyone,

My book is now available in the UK and Europe, I think it will be a little longer before it reaches the US.

Enjoy!

Well now, how to answer that? Publisher's list price is £35 :D . But shop around, you'd be surprised what discounts are on offer. A well known highstreet book and magazine seller starting with WH will do £22.4 , that's less than 6p a page!
