This latest volume in the "Polish Wings" series covers three fighter designs, which equipped the Polish Air Force from the late 1920s up to the outbreak of war.

The same company then designed the PWS 10, which was the first indigenous Polish fighter to enter service. Finally the PZL P.7a was the first of the classic Pulawski gull-wing monoplane fighters to see service, soldiering on right up until 1939 although it was obsolete by that time. The service use of all three aircraft is described, illustrated with many photos and full colour profiles. The PWS 10 also saw service in Spain, and this chapter in the type’s history is also described and illustrated. An invaluable guide to three classic inter-war fighters, with complete details of the colours and markings applied during their service.  As New

Henschel Hs 126
Peczkowski, Robert
ISBN: 9788389450401
Mushroom Model Publications  2008 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 208 pages. The Henschel Hs126 was the Luftwaffe equivalent of the Lysander, a classic high-wing STOL army cooperation aircraft.

It had a renaissance later in the war as a night attack bomber on the Eastern Front. The Hs126 also saw service in Spain, Latvia, Soviet Union and Greece. This book describes the development and operations of the Hs126, and is illustrated with many photos and colour profiles, plus scale plans. Over 350 previously unpublished wartime photos are included.  As New
