Valiant Wings  Supermarine Swift

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’ Airframe Detail series is addressing this, providing a one-stop reference guide for anyone wishing to model certain aircraft.
The Supermarine Swift – A Technical Guide by Richard A. Franks will be our first title covering a post-WW2 RAF jet. This Airframe Detail title covers a very important, but much neglected post-war RAF type. Whether you are tackling the brand new Airfix kit, or grappling with the old Hawk offering in 1/72nd scale this title will be essential reading for you.
Publication is scheduled for early February, cover price £12.95.
