I have just received another must-have Joe Honda book. 80 pages, mainly color. Japanese text translated into English. Main focus is Brabham Bt46 and BT46B (Swedish GP). Superb pictures. But only few technical pictures of the BT46B. I was at that race in the paddock and I still remember how secret the Brabham team was regarding the BT46B. So to obtain pictures was very hard also for Joe Honda. But there are 10 color pages with a BT46B technical work-around. This car belongs to Bernie and the superbly restored car was at Goodwood FoS some years ago. Except for a few mistakes the car is VERY close to the original car. The famous Danish dynamic duo was on-site and you can see the result in the book.
If you are a Brabham BT 46 fan the book is mandatory. Now there no excuses for not doing the BT46 and BT46B.

Next book is the late Ferrari 312 T2 + T3. I am already looking forward to this book.

I've been thinking about getting the books. Pictures are great but how accurate is the English translation?

I have yet to recieve my copy of this issue but I have all the rest and the english translation can be somewhat comedic. MFH could do a better job then simply running the Japanese text through a translation software like it appears they do especially for the price.:):)
