Airframe Extra No 8-The Air War Over Italy

Valiant Wings Publishing is about to produce the eighth title in the much-acclaimed Airframe Extra series: The Air War Over Italy.

Each title covers the history and timelines, detail of the protagonists, period photographs and superb colour artwork from Richard J Caruana. Specific kit builds in all three major scales (1/72nd, 1/48th and 1/32nd) from Steve A. Evans and Libor Jekl commemorate each event that we cover.

Each title is A4 in size, 64-80 pages with laminated covers . Available direct from Valiant Wings Publishing ( or from all good specialist bookshops.
