NEWS FROM VALIANT WINGS PUBLISHING
Valiant Wings Publishing’s tenth title in the well-established Airframe & Miniature series will be de Havilland Mosquito - Part 2: Fighter, Fighter- Bomber & Night Fighter (inc. Sea Mosquito) by Richard A. Franks.
The modelling map in relation to the Mosquito has changed dramatically over the past eighteen years and much more reference material is now available.

This second volume follows our first covering the bomber and photo-reconnaissance versions released in 2016.
This tenth book in our much-acclaimed series will contain at least 176 pages packed with vital information that no active modeller and Mosquito enthusiast should be without.
It will contain:
40+ pages of technical information
20+ pages of walk-around images and technical diagrams
5+ pages of camouflage and markings
25+ pages of model builds and modelling information
200+ photographs including wartime images
