The Curtiss SOC Seagull was an American single-engined scout observation aircraft, designed by Alexander Solla of the Curtiss-Wright Corporation for the United States Navy.

The Curtiss SOC Seagull was an American single-engined scout observation aircraft, designed by Alexander Solla of the Curtiss-Wright Corporation for the United States Navy. The aircraft served on battleships and cruisers in a seaplane configuration, being launched by catapult and recovered from a sea landing. The wings folded back against the fuselage for storage aboard ship. When based ashore or on carriers the single float was replaced by fixed wheeled landing gear.

The Curtiss SOC Seagull was one of the classic biplanes of World War I.

The Curtiss SOC Seagull was one of the classic biplanes of World War II. The early models entered service as the Navy's ship- and shore-based airplane in 1935, replacing the Vought O3U Corsair biplanes during the late thirties. The book outlines the history of the type's design and service, even to the point of identifying its competitors and why they failed to make the grade. Another significant fact is that the author explains some of the aerodynamic qualities of the wing which had slots and flaps, improving slow flying characteristics. Sample page 1. Sample page 2.

Another great well put together book. A friend of mine is using the resource of this book to scratch build a 1/24th Scale production of this A/C.

The usual Ginter quality. Helpful photos and data for modelers.

This book arrived with quite a bit of shelf wear. I've bought used books in better condition, so I was disappointed in the condition of the book.

The contents are typical for a Ginter work, and worth the price!

...although it served throughout the war.

This is a typical Naval Fighters volume, and a typical Steve Ginter authored Naval Fighters volume. It's a square bound, 128 page, 8-1/2" x 11" card cover with color restricted to the front and rear covers. I strongly suspect digital coloring has been employed in this case to achieve this.

As with most Ginter authored books his primary concern is to show the aircraft in the markings of all the units that ever operated the type. This he accomplishes as always. In addition to this he also gives a very interesting overview of squadron designations and markings and how they changed in the years leading up to the war. Modellers will especially appreciate this.

But the general enthusiast is well catered for also. There are numerous closeup photos which detail the features of the aircraft minutely. These are supplemented by contemporary technical documentation. The development history covers not only the aircraft and its variants but also its competitors and replacements. There is also an interesting explanation of the benefits of slots and flaps with four graphs.

In short, the only drawbacks are are the lack of color and the lack of commissioned drawings. Ginter does his best by calling out colors in captions and using contemporary drawings but these days standards are higher.

Still, I recommend this book highly. There are not many books dealing with this type.

The depth of detail is hard to beat, all the books I've purchased from this publisher have been great.
