Hi,
I repaint a lot of planes for Microsoft's Combat Flight Simulator series as a hobby and have found this book an excellent source of reference for specific colours of planes and their squadrons in relation to a specific time period. Though the time period ends over 20 years ago, and some plates are dedicated to planes of lesser known manufactures, and a lot of the color plates can be found in comparible books by David Mondey, overall, it is good value.

Format: Hardcover
This large book is packed with colorful drawings of aircraft from WW2 to 1981. The book features 113 aircraft presented in a variety of color schemes, usually in profile but occationally from the overhead perspective. As a modeler I use this book when painting miniature aircraft. The book is 207 pages long. There is minimal text. The text includes a brief introduction, then continues by briefly explaining each of the illustrations.

Format: Hardcover
This is a really great wish book for military aviation fans and modelers. a short browse and i find versions of "mundane" aircraft that amuse and beguile the instincts of an eccentric modeller. Each aircraft is shown in a number of variations which picque the palette of the most discriminating collector. i have already built a number of them, a Dornier 24T in Swedish markings and plan to do a Fiat BR20 in Japanese markings right out of a 30's comic book. Green and Swanborough have created a golden book of interesting aircraft which appeal to a colorful imagination.
