ISBN: 9788086637259
4+ Publishing  2010 
4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall Soft Cover New book, With its roots in the successful P-80 Shooting Star jet fighter, the Lockheed T-33, popularly known as the T-Bird, became the USAF's standard advanced trainer of the 1950s. Almost 5,700 T-33As were built for the USAF and USN, of which more than 1,000 were transferred to NATO Allies and others to a number of smaller air forces worldwide, and the aircraft were also licence-built in Canada and Japan. The type's operational service spanned well over 40 years, thus reaching an amazing record in longevity. The "Dozen Set" line of handbooks is aimed especially at scale modellers. Each title describes twelve particular aeroplanes, documented by period photos, and also brings useful detailed shots which can be utilised in finishing the models. The publication has 28 pages, including a total of 49 overall and detailed photographs, 12 pages with colour camouflage schemes and their description. Text in English. A comprehensive decal sheet is added for modellers' convenience. Three variants of this title are available, one including 1/32 scale decal sheet (MKD32008; 2x 250x200 mm sheets), one 1/48 scale decals (MKD48008; 1x 250x200 mm sheet) and this one with 1/72 transfers (MKD72008; 1x 200x150 mm sheet).

Israeli A-4 Skyhawk Units in Combat
Aloni, Shlomo
ISBN: 9781846034305
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, COM81. The light and agile A-4 Skyhawk was the first modern American jet to be offered to the Israeli Air Force, marking the point where the US took over from France as Israel’s chief military supplier. Deliveries began too late for the A-4 to fight in the Six-Day War, but it soon formed the backbone of the IAF’s ground-attack force. From 1969 to 1970 it flew endless sorties against Egyptian forces in the War of Attrition. Then, during the Yom Kippur War, five squadrons of A-4s saw combat and 50 planes were lost as they battled against the Arab armored onslaught. Using previously unpublished first-hand accounts and rare photography from the IAF archives and pilots’ private collections, Shlomo Aloni tells the definitive history of the IAF’s A-4 squadrons, including the story of Ezra 'BABAN' Dotan who became an ace with an unique double-kill of MiG17s.  As New

Fw 190 Sturmbocke vs B-17 Flying Fortress: Europe 1944-45
Forsyth, Robert
ISBN: 9781846039416
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 80 pages, DUE24. The Fw 190 was one of the best air superiority aircraft of World War II, and when it first appeared over the Channel in 1941 it sent shockwaves through the Allied air commands. By 1944, these fighters had been up-gunned to serve as the front line of defence against the Allied bombing campaign. Although the Fw 190s were responsible for shooting down hundreds of Allied bombers, they met their match against the USAAF B-17 ‘Flying Fortress’. Capable of carrying 4,000 lbs of bombs and bristling with .50cal machine guns, the B-17 could sow death in every direction. Using brand-new artwork and first-hand accounts, this book recreates the deadly drama in the skies above Germany in the closing stages of the war. Contents: Introduction, Chronology, Design and development, The Strategic Situation, Technical Specifications, The Combatants, Combat, Statistics and Analysis, Conclusion, Further Reading.  As New

Well over 4000 Albatros scouts were built between 1916 and 1918, and they were also extensively used by the Austro-Hungarians against Russian, Italian and British aircraft until war's end.

F-105 Thunderchief Units of the Vietnam War

ISBN: 9781846034923
Osprey Pub Co  2010 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, COM84. Facing the most formidably concentrated air defences in history, pilots of the F-105D flew against North Vietnamese targets day after day during the 43 months of Operation Rolling Thunder. Despite its limited maneuverability and the lack of self-sealing fuel tanks, which made it susceptible to combat damage, the 'bombers' shot down 27 MiG fighters in 1966 - 67. This book illustrates the importance of the Thunderchief in the Rolling Thunder campaign, including the pioneering suppression of enemy air defences (SEAD) methods developed by the F-105 'Wild Weasel' crews. Discussing the aircraft’s strengths and weaknesses and using first-hand narratives, Peter Davies captures the essence of flying the ‘Thud’ against heavy defences, and describes the development of wartime tactics and the heroic accomplishments of a selection of its aircrew. Contents: Chapter 1 - 1953-65. A brief account of the design philosophy, early service and first deployments to Vietnam from August 1964 for attacks on Laos; Chapter 2 - Thai Home.Takhli and Korat Royal Thai air bases become the home of the 355th and 388th Tactical Fighter Wings and the launch pads for most of the attacks during Rolling Thunder from 2 March 1965; Chapter 3 - 1966-67. The height of Rolling Thunder. Vietnamese defences are much improved and F-105 losses mount; Chapter 4 - MiG killers. Despite its designated bomber role the F-105 downs 27 MiG fighters, mainly with its internal gun, including two for one pilot in a single mission; Chapter 5 - Wild Weasels. ‘Iron Hand’ missions against North Vietnam’s defences begin in July 1965. The hunter-killer F-100; F-105 team concept is developed for attacking SAM sites.  As New

Mainly from the camera of one dedicated Lightning enthusiast and accomplished photographer. With the exception of a few illustrations included to set Fred Martins unique pictures in context, none of these photographs have been published in book form before. We have deliberately chosen a fairly large format for this publication to allow us to do full justice to the high quality photographs and to enable the reader to study in detail many of the aircrafts various features and paint schemes. Accurate illustrations of the squadron badges have also been included along with the badges of the training and target facilities flights. The introductions and captions to each squadron are a detailed account of its history whilst operating the Lightning. ‘Lightning Force’ sums up the shear exhilaration of the power, speed and noise that is the Lightning. Even today some seventeen years after the type was retired from frontline RAF service it still engenders great affection with aviation enthusiasts around the world. We are sure that all of those who admire the Lightning will enjoy studying these remarkable pictures and take themselves back to a time when they can remember seeing and hearing this type in the air. For those too young to recall this great aircraft these pages will provide superb visual reference and inspiration.  As New
