    I've seen those advertised and have been curious about them and their content. Let us know your feelings on these.

    I guess no one is working on their own vehicles any longer so Haynes figured they would branch out into more specialized territories.

    I've only had a cursory glance but it looks quite informative and has some nice pictures and illustrations. I see it more as an entertaining casual read than anything too scholarly and academic.

    Yeah, my thoughts exactly.

    As one who does his own DIY auto work and who uses the Hayne's DIY manuals, I find it amusing.
    Orion XT12 Dob, Orion XT6 Dob, Meade 4 inch Newtonian with a broken mount, Celestron 15x50 binoc's
    pictures are almost always taken afocally using my XT6 with a 25 mm eyepiece, 0.5x focal reducer, and a Fuji point and shoot camera.

    They're well known in the UK obviously. The first manual was for the Austin-Healey (Frog Eyed) Sprite in 1965. My dad always had Haynes manuals for his cars, including the last car he owned, which was a Vauxhall Vectra.

    I thought that 'this is interesting' when I saw that Haynes were publishing manuals for WWII fighter (and other) aircraft. What next for them I wonder??
