Airframe Extra No 5 - The Spanish Civil War
Information supplied by Mark Peacock
Valiant Wings Publishing is about to produce the fifth title in the much-acclaimed Airframe Extra series: The Spanish Civil War-Prelude To World War II.
Many active scale modellers like to build subjects based on a theme or historical event. This series looks at specific areas and events in the history of aerial warfare. Each title covers the history and timelines, detail of the protagonists, period photographs and superb colour artwork from Richard J Caruana. Specific kit builds in all three major scales (1/72nd, 1/48th and 1/32nd) from Dani Zamarbide, Steve A. Evans and Libor Jekl commemorate each event that we cover.
Each title is A4 in size, 64-80 pages with laminated covers. Available direct from Valiant Wings Publishing (www.valiant-wings.co.uk) or from all good specialist bookshops.
