Valiant Wings have announced a revised edition of their popular study of the Hawker Typhoon. The second edition will include a wealth of new content.
Valiant Wings Publishing’s next title in the ever-popular Airframe & Miniature series will be an updated, revised and expanded edition of The Hawker Typhoon – A Complete Guide To The RAF’s Classic Ground-Attack Fighter by Richard A. Franks.

This second book in our much acclaimed series has been out of print for over a year. With new Typhoon kits now available in 1/72nd and 1/24th scales and with a 1/24th scale ‘Car Door’ version coming from Airfix in 2016, it seemed right to make this book available once again.

In addition to the original contents it will contain:

Extra pages of walk-around images and technical diagrams
Extra 1/72nd full kit builds by Steve A. Evans of the Brengun and new-tool Airfix kits. These have been specially commissioned for the book.
A specially commissioned build of the 1/24th scale Airfix kit by Daniel Zamarbide.
An extra 48 pages of content in total
Specially commissioned new front cover artwork by Jerry Boucher

ISBN 978-0-9930908-8-2.

A real bonus for the modeller will be a set of fold-out 1/48th scale plans

RRP will be only be £18.95 per copy + postage and packing. Pre-orders via the Valiant Wings website, www.valiant-wings.co.uk, by ‘phone on 01234 273434 (+44 1234 273434 if calling from outside the UK) or by writing to:

I'm bummed. My wife will kill me if I ask to buy the same book again.

I might have to get one, even though I have the original, because the build by Daniel Zamarbide uses my paint masks Well I haven't seen another one by him and he posts everything on Face Book.
