Valiant Wings Airframe Extra
No.2 The Korean War


Many modellers these days seem to like building subjects based on a theme, which can often be historical events. This series of books from Valiant Wings will look at specific areas, and events in the history of aerial warfare with this in mind. Each title will cover the history and details details of these event. Each will contain period photographs, and colour artwork from Richard J Caruana. More importantly to the modeller each will contain kit builds in all three major scales (1/72nd, 1/48th and 1/32nd) from modellers; Dani Zamarbide, Steve A. Evans and Libor Jekl. The books are A4 soft cover format very well printed with clear text, good artwork and clear build photographs.

The Second book in this series covers The Air Battle Over Korea, billed as the first Jet vs Jet combat.


The colour artwork features many aircraft taking part including the propeller aircraft as well as the jets.


The five models features in this volume are;
  • Eduard 1/72 MiG-15bis
  • Special Hobby 1/72 Supermarine Seafire FR.47
  • Italeri 1/48 Grumman F7F-3N Tigercat
  • Special Hobby 1/48 Fairey Firefly FR.4/5
  • Italeri 1/32 North American F-86F


Also of interest to the modeller is a list of commonly used colours of this period with reference to commonly used Enamel and Acrylic paints.

This is a good looking second book in the series from Valiant Wings. Highly Recommended.
