Mark Peacock has sent us details of the next volume in the popular Airframe Extra series. This time the focus turns to Italy and the fighting from the point at which the Allies invaded the Italian mainland through to the end of WW2, offering the classic mix of historical overview and photos, colour profiles and top class model builds.
Airframe Extra No 8-The Air War Over Italy
Valiant Wings Publishing is about to produce the eighth title in the much-acclaimed Airframe Extra series: The Air War Over Italy.

Many active scale modellers like to build subjects based on a theme or historical event. This series looks at specific areas and events in the history of aerial warfare. Each title covers the history and timelines, detail of the protagonists, period photographs and superb colour artwork from Richard J Caruana. Specific kit builds in all three major scales (1/72nd, 1/48th and 1/32nd) from Steve A. Evans and Libor Jekl commemorate each event that we cover.

Each title is A4 in size, 64-80 pages with laminated covers . Available direct from Valiant Wings Publishing (www.valiant-wings.co.uk) or from all good specialist bookshops.
