4th in Series: Airframe Detail No.4
The Supermarine Swift
- A Technical Guide
We start 2016 with the fourth title in our expanding Airframe Detail series of books for the avid aviation modeller and enthusiast. Scale modellers have never had it so good. Right now all manner of historic aircraft types can be built in the popular scales. However, for the serious modeller and enthusiast, references can be scarce or hard to find for many of these interesting types. Valiant Wings’ new Airframe Detail is addressing this; providing a one-stop reference guide for anyone wishing to model certain aircraft.
     A wealth of historical photographs; period walkaround pictures; period diagrams from original flight manuals; a detailed study of structure, equipment and armament; colour profiles and camouflage and marking detail by Richard J Caruana; lists of all kits, accessories and decals produced in all scales.
Airframe & Miniature No.2:
The Hawker Typhoon
Second Edition
- Updated & Expanded
Our next title in the ever-popular Airframe & Miniature series will be an updated, revised and expanded edition of The Hawker Typhoon – A Complete Guide To The RAF’s Classic Ground-Attack Fighter by Richard A. Franks.
     This second book in our much acclaimed series has been out of print for over a year. With new Typhoon kits now available in 1/72nd and 1/24th scales and with a 1/24th scale ‘Car Door’ version coming from Airfix in 2016, it seemed right to make this book available once again.
     In addition to the original contents it will contain:
  • Extra pages of walk-around images and technical diagrams
  • Extra 1/72nd full kit builds by Steve A. Evans of the Brengun and new-tool Airfix kits. These have been specially commissioned for the book.
