  1. Grumman F-14 Tomcat – Warpaint #126 Guideline Publications What do I say about the Tomcat that hasn't already been said? A swing-wing Fleet Defence fighter with more than enough presence to be a movie star, which it can include on its resumé with one notable film called Top Gun with little Tommy Cruise at the controls in a rare break from him running round a lot. With twin GE F110 engines, variable geometry wings for low speed handling as well as at swept for high speed intercepts, two-seat cockpit and a huge capability for weapons carriage and delivery, it was
  2. Bristol Britannia/Canadair CP-107/Argus & CC-106 Yukon – Warpaint #125 Guideline Publications The Britannia began development during the final days of WWII in an attempt by the British aero-industry to regain some of the lost experience in building civilian and cargo aircraft, having specialised in fighting aircraft for over 5 years. It was to use Turboprop engine that were in their early days, leading to some delays, but it was also affected by the problems occurring with the De Havilland Comet, that led to the requirement for thorough and lengthy testing of
  3. MiG-17 Warpaint No.124 Guideline Publications The MiG-17 "Fresco" began life as an improved version of the MiG-15 to address its problems that arose as the mach number approached 0.92, when things got hairy for the pilot. The resulting airframe was different enough that it was given the new designation, with variably swept thinner wings with three wing-fences, a small ventral fin for stability and other improvements that gave a higher top speed with the same thrust as its earlier relative. It entered service after some initial faults were fixed in 1951, still us
  4. Douglas A-4 Skyhawk Warpaint No.121 Guideline Publications The Douglas A-4 Skyhawk was a carrier capable ground attack aircraft developed for the US Navy and US Marine Corps. It is a delta winged single engine aircraft. It was developed by the Douglas Aircraft Company originally under the A4D designation, latter changed to A-4. The A-4 was designed by Ed Heinemann to a 1952 US Navy specification for a carrier based attack aircraft capable of carrying heavy loads. For this an aircraft was to have a maximum weight of 30,000Lbs, and be capable of speeds up to 495 mph
  5. This topic began in the thread on the latest book from Guideline Publications that you can see here, but drifted off topic, so has been stripped out to continue on its own merits I bought this a couple of months ago, and if the plans in the book are accurate, then the new tool/boxing of the Airfix Mig 15 has a fuselage that is way too big and the fairly old KP Mig 15 is about right. The book itself is very good, an interesting read in its own right.
  6. Mikoyan-Gurevich Mig-15 Warpaint No.120 Guideline Publications The Mig-15 was the Soviet Union’s first accomplished jet fighter following WWII, the better design of a number of candidates and more capable of achieving transonic speeds because of its swept wings than the other straight winged competitors. Using reverse-engineered, locally built Rolls Royce Nene copies for power they became one of the most produced fighter jets and were upgraded as time went by until they reached the limits of the airframe and were replaced by the upgraded Mig-17 that served in Vie
  7. Albatros D.I – D.III Warpaint No.122 Guideline Publications The Albatros was one of the better WWI fighters, entering service in 1916 and utilising advanced (for the time) construction techniques to lessen weight while gaining structural strength. It initially suffered from lack of manoeuvrability due to the high wing load, which was partially addressed by the D.II with a narrower gap between the two wings. Engine cooling was via the centre section of the upper wing to avoid draining the system I the event of a bullet strike, but scalded pilots might disagree wi
  8. Grumman F9F Panther Warpaint No.119 Guideline Publications The Panther was one of the US Navy's first successful Jet powered carrier fighters, it was also Grumman's first foray into jet aircraft. Development for the aircraft began during WWII and so was not able to benefit from the swept wing technology. As such it was a conventional straight winged aircraft. Grumman had been working on a jet fighter the G-75 which lost out to the Douglas Skyknight, however they had been working on the G-79 as well and through some bureaucratic manoeuvring the wording of the G-75
  9. Hawker Fury and Nimrod Warpaint No.116 Guideline Publications Developed from the Hawker F.20/27 prototype the Fighter Fury would use the same Rolls-Royce Kestrel as fitted to the light Bomber the Hart. It was initially called the Hornet and was purchased by the Air Ministry in 1930, the later production aircraft would be called the Fury as the Air Ministry wanted aircraft names which reflected ferocity! Due to the depression only small numbers were ordered at first. The Fury was to be the first RAF Fighter to exceed 200mph in level flight. The aircraft was very ag
  10. Douglas F4D/F-6 Skyray & F5D Skylancer Warpaint No.117 Guideline Publications Using some of the captured aerodynamics data from Alexander Lippisch's research into delta wings, Douglas worked up this design for a lightweight interceptor/fighter that was capable of transonic speeds, which resulted in a tailless design with a highly blended fuselage and thin delta wing. Due to this being totally new territory and the intended engine not being available until later in the programme, progress from the 1945 start was slow, with the second prototype flying in
  11. F-4 Phantom II Warpaint Series No.114 The McDonnell F-4 Phantom II has become both an icon and a legend, with many publications already in print of this famous jet aircraft of the Cold War era. This latest book, in Guideline Publication’s “Warpaint Series”, covers the McDonnell F-4B and F-4J variants, including their upgrades to F-4N and F-4S respectively, with the RF-4B also being covered. These variants were used mainly by the United States Navy (USN) and United States Marine Corp (USMC); plus a small number of refurbished F-4J’s, that were sold to Britain and re-desi
  12. Panavia Tornado ADV Warpaint No.113 Guideline Publications Developed alongside the Interdictor Strike (ADS) from the Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MRCA), the Air Defence Variant (ADV) had a longer radome that covered a more powerful radar, a fuselage extension to facilitate a higher fuel load, and role-specific differences in the avionics systems, which gave it a distinctive look when seen next to the shorter, stubbier IDS airframe. It wasn't intended to be a traditional dogfighter, which was just as well, but it was instead designed as a weapons platform, initially
  13. Westland Scout and Wasp Warpaint Series No.110 The helicopter twins produced by Westland, as the Scout and Wasp, originated as far back as 1956 when Saunders-Roe Ltd. Began its design of a private ventur for a replacement for the Skeeter light helicopter in service with the Army Air Corps but with developed improvements. The Skeeter had a piston engine but the advent of suitable gas turbine engines in France resulted in the development of the highly successful Alouette, by Sud-Aviation, raised the possibility of similar development in Britain. Due to their

  15. Douglas C-54/R5D Skymaster & DC-4 Warpaint Series No.109 Guideline Publications The Douglas C-54/DC-4 was a four engined transport aircraft and airliner developed by Douglas in the 1940s. A robust simple aircraft it proved to be popular with many airlines and military organisations. Over 1200 aircraft were built, including the Canadair North Star. The book is the latest in the Warpaint series, and is supplied in a soft card binding with 92 pages in between, all of which is printed on glossy stock with colour on almost every page. In between the informative text regarding the devel
  16. Sikorsky S-55/H-19 Chicksaw/Westland Whirlwind Warpaint Series No.106 Guideline Publications Sikorsky were the pioneers of helicopters or rotary-winged aircraft in the Western world, and licensed their products extensively to British company Westland, where they became well-loved and almost household names. The Chicksaw was the first practical helicopter from Sikorsky, capable of carrying a substantial load due to the Pratt & Whitney Wasp engine that was initially fitted. Later replaced by a turbojet engine by Westland, this gave the aircraft a longer nose, better serviceability, and
  17. Republic F-84F Thunderstreak & RF-84F Thunderflash Warpaint Series No.100 The F-84F Thunderstreak was originally planned to augment the USAF's front-line fighter requirements in the early 1950's; however, engine and aerodynamic teething problems delayed production until 1954. Although the Thunderstreak was not classed as a superior or outstanding aircraft, its performance being overshadowed by the F-86 Sabre, the aircaft was produced in large numbers and served with the USAF and many other nations air forces for many years. The underpowered Wright J65 engine did not give
  18. Ilyushin Il-2 Sturmovik Warpaint by Guideline Publications The Il-2 Sturmovik was possibly one of the best ground-attack aircraft of WWII, and even if you don't subscribe to that idea, it still put the wind up a LOT of German ground troops and tankers and gained a fearsome reputation. This book is the latest in the Warpaint series, and is numbered 107 with no sign of any end. It is bound in a card jacket "magazine-style", and has the by now familiar blue top to the cover, which is also printed on the inner side. Inside are 52 pages on glossy white stock, with a set of plans in 1:72 in the
  19. Convair B-36 Peacemaker Warpaint Series No.102 In 1941 the United States had to consider that Britain might lose the war with Germany; most of western Europe had already fallen to the German onslaught and the U.S. viewed the situation that they may have to take up the fight with Germany if Britain fell. The major problem was that America did not have a long-range bomber with sufficient range and load carrying capacity to fly missions to Germany all the way from the USA. Early in 1941 President Roosevelt and his senior military officers looked at the increasing likelihood of fighti
  20. de Havilland D.H.82 Tiger Moth Warpaint Series No.101 The de Havilland D.H.82 Tiger Moth is possibly one of the most recognised and well-known aircraft ever built; mainly as it was used extensively in both military and civilian versions, and many pilots probably started their adventurous flying careers at the controls of one. The Tiger Moth had a world-wide reputation for being simple but tough, so much so that over 200 are still flying today; with quite a few to be seen at air shows etc. The author, Adrian Balch, has obv
  21. Avro York Warpaint Series No.98 The latest in the Warpaint Series from Guideline Publications is No.98 the Avro York and I am sure this should be a welcome addition. This quote, from Wikipedia, basically says it all: "The Avro York was a British transport aircraft that was derived from the Second World War Lancaster heavy bomber, and used in both military and civilian roles between 1943 and 1964" The concept of the Avro York came from Avro's design team, headed up by Roy Chadwick, as early as 1941 who recognised a future requirement for large bodied t
  22. McDonnell F3H Demon Warpaint Series No.99 Hot on the heels of my last review from Guideline Publications comes No.99, the McDonnell F3H Demon. The Demon was large, ugly, underpowered and soon superceded as front-line interceptor; however it comes from an era when US military jets, especially naval ones, were adorned with bright hi-vis liveries and markings. As such, models of these would look good in any display case or collection. The F3H was McDonnell's offering of a single seat, short range, carrier-based fighter with the abilit
  23. Westland Sea King Warpaint series Number 95 The Aircraft In 1961 Sikorsky produced a new twin-engine helicopter for two major requirements; the first was anti-submarine warfare (ASW), in order to counter the new threat from the Soviet Union's growing submarine fleet; and the second being Search and Rescue (SAR) work. The designation allocated for this multi-role helicopter was the S.61. The design was the latest in helicopter advanced technologies and proved to be ideal for a multitude of ship-borne operational requirements. Driven
