Great War Aircraft in Profile

This series of books looks at the aircraft of the Great War in detail. Lavishly illustrated throughout and containing authoritative text, each volume covers one specific aircraft type or the aircraft produced by a specific Company, from just prior to 1914 through to the end of the First World War.

The books are broken down into three sections - the first looks at the design evolution of the type, the second presents detailed drawings of the aircraft in 1/72 and 1/48 scale, while part three looks at the colours and markings applied to these aircraft. This last chapter includes several pages of side and 3-view colour drawings.
