This debut 64-page Eagle Eye title marks the start of a brand-new series that will maintain an unerring focus on lesser known Japanese types or those that have thus far received scant coverage. In this case, the subjects largely decided themselves, having been briefly covered in On Closer Inspection articles in issues of Arawasi International that are now out of print; articles that had left us with a mass of unused material.
In true Arawasi fashion, the resulting monograph magazine ("monozine") includes:|
* Exhaustive coverage, as ever primarily researched from Japanese sources
* A feast of photographs, combined with astounding artwork from names like Mark Rolfe, Zygmunt Szeremeta and Watanabe Rikyu
* Unit histories and markings
* Two fold-out sections, with detailed aircraft plans in 1/48 and illustrations
More Eagle Eye projects, covering trainer, bomber and experimental types, are in the works.
