A-17 : The Complete History of the Northrop Attack Planes and Ites Export Derivatives
Rivas, Santiago; Tincopa, Amaru; Braas, Nico
ISBN: 9789086162710
Lanasta  2019 
 Soft Cover New book, 164 pages. The Northrop A-17, was a development of the Northrop Gamma 2F was a two-seat, single-engine, monoplane, attack bomber built in 1935 by the Northrop Corporation for the U.S. Army Air Corps. A-17s used by air forces of the British Commonwealth designated the aircraft as the "Nomad." Although none of the US operated aircraft were involved in combat, a large number of machines served in a vital role as trainer for commonwealth pilots during World War Two. The export variant Douglas 8A did fire its guns in anger during air combat in the Netherlands and Iraq, and Peruvian aircraft distinguished themselves during a border conflict with Ecuador in 1941 and again in 1948, when rebellion and civil war threatened the country. Last flights were made as late as 1958, thus ending an era of almost 25 years of continuous service with air forces all over the globe. This book offers an overview of an iconic aeroplane. The authors, all specialists in their field, have compiled a comprehensive story and gathered more than 350 photographs, colour profiles and maps, thus offering a fascinating view at an aircraft type linking the ‘Golden Age of aviation’ days with the dark years of World War Two.   As New

Osprey Pub Co  2011 
 Soft Cover New book, 112 pages, ACE099. By the outbreak of World War 2, the Luftwaffe had acquired effective tactical battlefield experience from its involvement in the Spanish Civil War in 1936-1939, centered around the operations conducted by the Legion Condor, a force of some 19,000 'volunteer' German airmen, staff, technicians and groundcrew formed into fighter, bomber, reconnaissance, Flak, weather and signals elements.

From the He 51 to the Messerschmitt, from flying in close wing-to-wing formations to the looser, wider formations common to the Luftwaffe during World War 2, this book is a must-have for any German aviation historian or modeler.   As New

Blackburn Shark
Willis, Matthew
ISBN: 9788365958310
Mushroom Model Publications  2020 
 Soft Cover New book, 104 pages, 32 pages of colour profiles. The Blackburn Shark torpedo/spotter/reconnaissance biplane was overshadowed by its competitor the Fairey Swordfish. In reality though, the Shark was more modern than the Swordfish and performed better, and had it not been bedevilled with engine trouble in its early service, might have gone on to great things. As it was, the Shark contributed greatly to the Royal Navy's preparation for war in the late 1930s, and performed valuable service for the Fleet Air Arm and Royal Canadian Air Force during WWII. This is the first book devoted to the Shark to cover all of its service with every operator, and features nearly 100 photographs including many never seen before and detailed manufacturer images from the BAE Systems Heritage archive. Written by naval aviation historian Matthew Willis, featuring scale plans based on manufacturer drawings and artwork by British illustrator Chris Sandham-Bailey, this title offers the most comprehensive historical and technical study of the Shark yet published.  As New

Fiat CR.32 Aces of the Spanish Civil War
Logoluso, Alfredo
ISBN: 9781846039836
Osprey Pub Co  2010 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ACE94. The CR.32 Falco was a handsome and highly manoeuvrable biplane fighter. During General Franco’s fight with the Republicans for the control of Spain from 1936 - 39, no fewer than 477 CR.32s were involved, with an astounding 709 confirmed aerial victories, and an additional 320 kills claimed, for just 62 losses. As these statistics reveal, the CR.32 was the unrivalled master of the skies over Spain. By the war’s end, the five leading aces of the conflict were all Spanish CR.32 pilots. Their exploits, and those of the other leading CR.32 aces, are examined for the first time in English in this exciting volume. Contents: Blue Arena, Fighter Escalation, Forming of the Aviazione Legionaria, Unit Reorganisation, War continues eastward, Last battles, Nationalist Victory, Appendices, Colour plates commentary, Index.  As New

Fokker C.X
Hoogschagen, Edwin
ISBN: 9789086161652
Lanasta  2013 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages. Designed in 1933, the elegant looking Fokker C.X was outdated from the start. The type was intended as strategic reconnaissance plane, but was not suited for this task. More modern, twin engined types had claimed this specialised role. Instead, the biplane served well as short range scout and light bomber. The C.X is a little known member of the Dutch Fokker stable. Just like the D.XXI this biplane served in the airforces of two little neutral countries on the eve of world war two. Both fought gallantly in a war of David versus Goliath proportions, and the complete operational history of the type spans a total of 25 years. In retrospect, the C.X was the last fighting biplane type built by Fokker and the company’s last pre-war military type to survive.  As New

Gloster Grebe and Gamecock
Kershaw, Tim
ISBN: 9788361421177
Mushroom Model Publications  2011 
 Soft Cover New book, 208 pages. The Gloster Grebe and Gamecock served with the RAF in the 1920s, the last in a line of Folland-designed fighters derived from the WW1 SE.5a, and the last wire-braced wooden fighters in RAF service. Wearing the colourful squadron markings of the day, these nimble little aircraft thrilled the crowds at many airshows of the time, flown by pilots such as Douglas Bader. In this book the design, development and history of these aircraft and their derivatives is described and illustrated, drawing on Gloster archives and the resources of the Jet Age Museum, which has nearly completed a fully-detailed reproduction Gamecock incorporating several surviving parts of this classic fighter. All the many experimental derivatives are described and illustrated, plus the export versions which served in Finland and Japan. Profusely illustrated with many rare photos, excerpts from official manuals, scale plans, and a full colour walk-around section on the replica. Features superb colour profiles by the late Krzysztof W. Wolowski, who sadly passed away shortly before the book was completed.   As New

Spanish Republican Aces
Lopez, Rafael
ISBN: 9781849086684
Osprey Pub Co  2012 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ACE106. At the start of the Spanish Civil War, most young fighter pilot officers joined the rebels, while the high ranking officers, grupo or escuadrilla commanders, and the NCOs, sergeants and corporals remained loyal to the government. Mostly flying the obsolete Nieuport Ni.52s these loyalists were soon outpaced by the more modern Fiat CR.32s and Heinkel He 51s. However, at this early stage of the war, there were several Republican airmen who became aces and famous in the process, despite the small numbers of enemy aircraft shot down. Widely speaking, the Republican military aviation did not keep an exhaustive record of individual shooting claims. However, sufficient documentation exists to make a reasonable assumption as to which pilots fall into the ace category. This volume details the exploits of those pilots, complementing previous works in the "Osprey Aircraft of the Aces" series on Nationalist CR.32 Aces and Polikarpov I-15, I-16 and I-152 Aces.  As New
