Features of Detail & Scale’s first digital publication on the McDonnell F3H Demon include:
- A complete Developmental History of the aircraft including how it was designed to meet specific needs of the Navy and where it fit in to the development of carrier based jet fighters in the 1950s.
- A chapter on Demon Variants that covers the prototypes and each production version of the Demon, explaining in considerable detail the differences and the weapons each could employ.
- A chapter called Demon Daze written by several pilots who flew the Demon. This chapter is filled with informative and interesting observations from pilots who actually strapped into the aircraft and took it into the skies!
- A chapter covering Squadrons & Deployments takes a look at every squadron that flew the Demon with paint schemes and markings illustrated by photographs and color artwork developed specifically for this publication. Every deployment made by these squadrons is covered with a brief unit history of each. Many rare and never-before-published color photographs of Demons are also included in this section and throughout the book.
- Demon Details is the most extensive detail chapter ever included in a Detail & Scale publication illustrating the Demon with scores of detail photographs. All of the photos are in color, and almost all were taken specifically for this publication to provide the best and most complete coverage possible in this detailed look at the aircraft.
Detail & Scale’s usual Modeler’s Section that discusses, reviews, and illustrates the currently available scale models of the Demon.
- Other features of the book include four-view scale drawings in color and original and highly detailed artwork illustrating the cockpit details and the two types of ejection seats, all of which were created specifically for this publication. There is also a look at the restoration process for the Demon on display at the National Museum of Naval Aviation.
