  1. A thread to keep you all updated on the latest modelling books from Casemate and our distributed publishers. Click on the jacket images of the books to link through to the website with more info. - Casemate UK
  2. This might interest folk who have some Christmas money burning a hole in their pocket. https://www.burntash.eu/product-page/boac-and-the-golden-age-of-flying-hardback Tommo.
  3. Have any of you purchased or read any of the output from said publisher? I've seen some positive reviews (e.g. the Scale War Machines channel on Youtube) but I'm not too sure about spending quite a lot on so little in terms of page count. Do they provide enough insight? Are they constructive for someone who would like to hit a good standard in figure painting and wants to know how the best painters do it? If you like them, which one or two titles would you say are standouts? Alternative recommendations are, of course, equally welcome.
  4. There appear to be two books out right now on the Spitfire dive-bombing offensive against V-2 rockets. I'm trying to figure out which one is right for me (as the kids say) and I was hoping that anyone who's read either or both of them would be willing to weigh in on what they thought of 'em. Spitfire Dive Bombers versus the V-2, by Bill Simpson, which is 258 pages or Operation Big Ben, by Craig Cabell, which is rather shorter at 176 pages. If anyone has any input, I'd be ever so grateful. Thanks!
  5. Avro MANCHESTER Warpaint Series No.103 The Manchester's origins go back to Specification P.13/36 of 1936, which the Air Ministry tendered out to eight different companies, requiring proposals for a new medium bomber. Of those proposals tendered Avro's design for the Type 679 was placed first, with the Handley Page H.P.56 second, both twin-engined machines which were to be engined by the underdeveloped and controversial Rolls Royce Vulture X-inline engine. Eventually a contract for two prototypes were awarded to Avro who produced the airframes L7246 and L7247. The Air Ministry s
  6. Hello everyone, I'm a complete newbie with Britmodeller and at modelling, making a return to modelling after a gap of nearly 60 years! I thought I might try and bridge at least my knowledge shortfall (the skills will hopefully come with practice) by having for reference a book or two on such subjects as Aircraft modelling tips and techniques and even those on airbrushing and finishing. Among the myriad of books out there, with your help I'm hoping to find one or two good ones! Has anyone any recommendations, please? With many thanks and kind regards, Patrick.
  7. We are Casemate UK - a major publisher and distributor of history titles. We distribute many varied titles, hopefully many of which you know and love (many modelling titles from Kagero), and we are also going to sponsor some of your group build competitions and *hopefully* attempt a build of our very own in the coming months! We look forward to hearing from many of you and finding out how fun model building can be! We will keep you all updated on any discounts and special offers that we have going in store or online too, so you can make sure to get the most for your money! - Casemate UK
  8. USS Lexington Squadron At Sea book This book, another in the series of Squadron at Sea, this time concentrating on the life, and death of the carrier USS Lexington. Originally designed, and in fact construction had started, as a battlecruiser armed with eight sixteen inch guns and fitted with engines that produced 180,000hp giving her a speed of 35 knots. Her keel was laid down in 1921at the Fore River shipyard, Quincy, Massachusetts. Unfortunately due the signing of the Washington Naval Treaty of 1922 the plans for the four battlecruisers of the class were cancelled. As the Treaty stat
  9. Hi guys, Just taken delivery of the great loooking Hobby Boss 1/48 Me262A-1A/U2 'VO56'. I'm going to build this as a Me262A-1A day fighter and I've decided I need a good reference book. While the Eddie Creek books would be great, no chance I've got a zillion £'s to get all four of them! So, can someone recommend a single point of reference book that has good detail shots, some colour pics etc for around the £20 mark please. Thanks, Ruari
  10. IJN Battleship Haruna Kagero Super Drawings in 3D The IJN Haruna and her sisterships Kongo, Hiei and Kirishima were the last battleships designed by British naval engineer George Thurston. They were more like heavily armed and armoured battlecruisers than standard battleships. Armed with eight fourteen inch guns Haruna fought in almost every major naval action of the Pacific Theater during World War II. She covered landings of Japanese forces in Malaya (in present-day Malaysia) and the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia) in 1942 before engaging American forces at the Battle of Midway and du
