Airfix Magazine Guide 18: USAAF Camouflage of World War Two

I found this yesterday in the Oxfam bookshop for 99p which rounds off my collection of the Airfix Modellers Guides to WW2 aircraft camouflage and markings. These are pretty old books now but still well worth getting hold of as they contain some really useful advice on camouflage patterns and insignia, which can be invaluable when painting up 1/300 scale planes even though the illustrations are all in black and white.  In fact, I have some Scotia Collectair B26 Marauders that would be a great subject to tackle using this book as a starting point, along with all the others that I have jammed into the bookshelves!

  1. They are great books.

    I am always surprised at the variety of titles and the price asked for these. I have seen them offered for £15.00 a book and then you see one in a charity book store for 99p.

    A great find.
