Valiant Wings Publishing are adding more value for the avid aviation enthusiast and scale modeller with this next title in the Airframe Extra series. 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 detail of the protagonists, containing 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.
