Mark Peacock has sent us details of what looks set to be a sure fire hit for Valiant Wings – a detailed reference study of the iconic Gloster Gladiator.
Airframe Album No 12 - The Gloster Gladiator - A Detailed Guide To The RAF’s Last Biplane Fighter - by Richard A. Franks

The Airframe Album series of books is now five years old. Airframe Albums offer everything that modern modellers want when they are tackling a specific subject.
They include:

Period diagrams
Data from flight manuals
Data from spare parts catalogues
Fully detailed 3D isometric views of prototype and production machines
Full colour profiles and concise camouflage and marking notes

For our twelfth aircraft subject we have rung the changes and gone with our first biplane subject
