This is a large volume with good basic historical and use information about each design covered with multiple color profiles. Some of the profiles are rendered in 3-view. Also, the readers are provided by the author with 4-view scaled drawings with cross sections. Some drawings are in 1/72 and some are in 1/48. Fifteen different aircraft are covered in the book. These being: Gloster Gladiator, Bristol Blenheim, Hawker Hurricane, Merlin powered Spitfires, griffon powered Spitfires, BP Defiant, Bell Airacobra, Westland Whirlwind, Curtiss Tomahawk and Kittyhawk, Bristol Beaufighter, Hawker Typhoon, NA Mustang, De Havilland Mosquito and Hawker Tempest.

With “Profile” in the name it is readily apparent what the focus of the book will be, and the author does not disappoint! There are so many various paint schemes and markings covered by these beautiful profiles on each aircraft the modeler will have inspiration for years to come. Anyone with an interest in the RAF in World War Two will love this book. I heartily recommend it and look forward to the succeeding volumes!

Our thanks to Casemate Publishing for the review copy and my thanks to IPMS/USA for the review opportunity
