  1. Hallo If anybody wants to build one of theses a/c, so I suggest the book: Sukhoi to my opinion, the detailed background history and much details are just wow! Happy modelling
  2. Has anyone ever come across the above hardback book? It was advertised back around 2002/2003 in the same series from Sutton Publishing as the Last of the Phantoms / The Last of The Lightnings / Buccaneers / Hunters. I duly bought all of the others but cannot recall ever seeing the 'Heavy Lifters' available for sale and it came to mind yesterday when I was clearing out some old magazines and saw an advert for the series , checked all the usual places and although they have an image of the cover all have it marked as unavailable with no second-hand copies on offer which s
  3. Hi all, I could not find any section here regarding books so I post it here. I am looking for a good book that covers the events from DDay until the end of the Normandy battle. A general overview, so to speak. Not too brief, not specializing in tank warfare, but providing detailed accounts of the major events. Best with photographs. Can anyone recommend something like this? Ingo ps: written in English would be no problem

  6. Mrs Loft-full tells me her friend, Helen Doe, has a biography of her father coming out on 15th May 2015. http://helendoe.co.uk/fighter-pilot-new-book/ Helen Doe is a professional historian and generally writes about maritime matters. On this occasion however she has applied her skills to write about her father W/Cdr Bob Doe. I'm very much looking forward to reading this book.
  7. I'm looking for a book on the subject more directed to the modeller, that is, highlighting clearly the differences between versions with drawings, dimensions, and so on... I am interested also in the newer "Super Hercules" versions, both the "normal" and the stretched ones. What did exactly changed in the later versions? Wing profile? Once more I am interested from a modeller's view, not in wiring systems. Good scale drawings would be a must. Does this book exist? Opinions, please! Carlos
  8. HAWKER HUNTER in RAF Service by AIRfile Hot on the heels of AIRfile's first 'single type' aircraft publication, the Fairey Swordfish, comes this book on the Hawker Hunter. This sleek and beautiful single engined jet has to be one of my all time favourite aircraft, ever since I first saw them in Borneo whilst on operations out there in the 1960's. The book is produced by Neil Robinson to his practical and visually impressive style of layout; starting with the a full colour photo on the A4 card cover, depicting a Hunter FGA.9 of 54 Sqn RAF. Within the book's 88 pages are chap
  9. Airframe & Miniature No 7 Owing to the mass of material that has got to be included Airframe & Miniature No 7 - The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Radial-engine Versions (including Fw 190A, B, C, F, G & S) – A Complete Guide To The Luftwaffe’s Butcher Bird by Richard A. Franks is going up in size to a massive 224 pages - their biggest book to date. Just to give you an idea of the scope of material, the picture art count alone exceeds 190 illustrations of all variants. However the even better news is that there will be no change to the cover price of £18.95 per copy, and all pre-order
  10. Pearl Harbor to Coral Sea Book by AIRfile The surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, on the island of O’ahu, Hawaii, by Japanese naval aircraft on the morning of December 7 1941 brought the United States into the war which, until then mainly involved the forces of Britain against Germany and Italy. Immediately following this attack, Japanese forces attacked Thailand, Malaya, the Philippines, Guam, Wake Island and Midway. These attacks brought Britain and the United States to declare war on Japan and became known as the Pacific War. Over the following weeks Japan extended its operations, i
  11. Camouflage & Markings, Eastern Front 1943 Scale Armour Modelling This is a first for SAM Publications, a book on the armoured fighting vehicles of the Eastern Front in the Spring and Summer of 1943, which is when the Battle of Kursk took place. Starting with the background of 1943, it moves on to explain tank production of both sides, including numbers built, numbers of lend lease etc. Of particular interest is the chapter concerning German regulations over colours and their usage. The photographs are refreshingly new, some are familiar but the majority are not to this reviewer a
  12. RAF Trainers - Volume 2 : 1945 - 2012 Book by AIRfile AIRfile AIRfile produces a very nice range of illustrated guides which are, in their own words "covering camouflage and markings, full of well-researched, clear and unambiguous full colour illustrations, with detailed informative captions, produced by a cooperative of well-known aviation enthusiasts, authors and illustrators, designed to provide comprehensive camouflage scheme and markings coverage culled from a variety of areas including previously published material, official and private documents and photo collect
  13. Hawker Siddeley/British Aerospace First Generation Harrier In Worldwide Service Volume 1: 1960-2000 Book by AIRfile AIRfile AIRfile produces a very nice range of illustrated guides which should be very useful for anyone seeking detailed information and colour references, whether for a model build or for general aviation research, on specific aircraft types or theatres of operation. This book is the eighth in AIRfile's current series of colourful and beautifully illustrated aircraft and is primarily geared for the aircraft model builder. The combination of well r
  14. Diamond T 4 Ton Truck Squadron Publications Walk Around Originally designed for the Quartermasters Corps’ need for a prime mover for the 155mm howitzer, the Diamond T truck featured robust construction and a powerful Hercules engine. The Corps found the truck well suited to their needs, in particular as a dump truck, and strongly favoured the Diamond T over the ubiquitous 2.5ton GMC CCKW cargo dump. Unfortunately the Diamond T cost almost twice as much as the CCKW, a considerable hindrance to mass procurement. In addition to the short wheel base prime movers, dump trucks and general
  15. OPERATION 'TORCH' The Anglo-American Invasion of Vichy French North Africa Book by AIRfile Following the invasion by German forces into France in 1940, the armed forces of that country became split as to their alliances. To the north and west the French capitulated to the Germans under the overwhelming power that the axis forces projected. The case was different in the Vichy area of south-east France, along with other French controlled areas bounding the Mediterranean; namely Morocco, Algiers and Tunisia. These areas became known as the Vichy French controlled areas The Vichy Fre
  16. USS Arizona Kagero Super Drawings in 3D The USS Arizona must rank as one of the most famous battleships of all time, not because of any heroic actions, but remembered due to the manner of her demise on that fateful day, 7th December 1941. This new publication from Kagero is in the same format as the previous titles in the series, some of which have been reviewed here on Britmodeller. The first few pages include the introduction and quite a comprehensive history of the ship plus an interesting analysis of what happened to her at Pearl Harbour, including a couple of theories on how the
  17. The Heinkel He 219 Uhu Valiant Wings Publishing Written by Richard A Franks, this book is sub-titled "A detailed guide to the Luftwaffe's ultimate nightfighter", and that's about the best description for both the book and the aircraft itself. The He.219 was an advanced design that took time to find favour enough to get it to production, and even then it was too late to do much to change the outcome of the air battles that raged over Germany during the late war, thanks to the delays due to personal conflicts and in-fighting high in the RLM. Was it ever thus? The book is a perfect-bound le
  18. Ferdinand/Elefant Detail in Action Squadron Signal The Ferdinand was a development of the unsuccessful entry in the contest for a new heavy tank which led to the Tiger. Nicknamed the Porsche Tiger, Porsche were left with 100 chassis that now had nothing to do. Instead of resting on their laurels, Porsche began developing a large tank hunter that would use the chassis, with a new fixed superstructure to house the gun, which was to be the long barrelled Pak 43/2 L/71 gun, which had a limited travel and elevation. It wasn't a huge success, and in 1943, the lot were recalled and improved
  19. The Hawker Tempest Valiant Wings Publishing The Tempest started life as an improved Typhoon, and was referred to as the Typhoon II, but in the process of squeezing more performance out of her, a new specification was created, and the Tempest was born. Five prototypes were ordered with different engines including various marks of the Griffon, Sabre and Centaurus, with varying degrees of success. This book covers both the gestation of the prototypes through to success or failure, various side-projects that weren't taken up, the eventual entry into service, various colour profiles, with l
  20. Oshkosh M-ATV Photo Walkaround AK Interactive (ISBN 8 436535 570978) This new walkaround book from Mig Jimenez' Ak Interactive is a very high quality reference manual for anyone with the new 1:35 Kinetic M-ATV reviewed here, or the Panda kit that is also available. It is perfect bound, and runs to 71 pages, all of which are devoted to photographs of this aggressive looking all-terrain vehicle. The book is divided into chapter, which deal with one side of the vehicle at a time, and a section on its deployment to Afghanistan brings up the rear to show the vehicle in-theatre. Chapter
