Valiant Wings Airframe Extra
No.3 The Battle of Britain.


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 Third book in this series covers probably one of the most famous aerial battles of all time; The Battle of Britain.


The colour artwork features many aircraft taking part from both sides.



The six models features in this volume are;
  • Airfix 1/72 Boulton Paul Defiant Mk.I
  • Airfix 1/72 Hawker Hurricane Mk.I
  • Eduard 1/48 Messerschmitt Bf 110c
  • Revell 1/32 Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IIa
  • Trumpeter 1/32 Messerschmitt Bf 109E-3
  • Special Hobby1/32 Fiat G.50-II Freccia


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 great third book in the series from Valiant Wings. Highly Recommended.
