Book is now available.

A quick update  regarding our forthcoming P-38 Lightning book. We are now in the midst of proofing and it is looking good. We anticipate taking delivery on or around August 18th.


The really good news is that we have expanded the content to 256 pages from our projected 240. The will be no change to the advertised cover price.

The P-38 Lightning is a popular aircraft type with modellers and has recently been the subject of several new toolings in all scales. Our latest book will go some way towards unpicking the different variants and colourful schemes that apply to the type.
