Armstrong Whitworth AW650/660 Argosy: Warpaint #71 SC +NSI+
Armstrong Whitworth AW650/660 Argosy: Warpaint #71 softcover +NSI+
Though its achievements have remained largely unsung, the Argosy gave loyal service in the United Kingdom as well as in the Near, Middle and Far East, acquitting itself with honour, even when operating in zones that proved inaccessible to other aircraft. This book gives an insight into all this, as well as details of operators and colour schemes relating to this subject which for the most part has remained neglected. 2 colour 5-views. 29 colour profiles. 18 colour and 59 black and white photographs. 1:72 scale foldout plans.
28 pages, black & white and colour photographs, 29 colour profiles, colour multi-views, 1:72 scale line drawing plans, production and unit lists, model kit decal and accessory list, softcover, A4 Format, 21 cm (8 1/4”) x 29.7 cm (11 3/4 “)
Designed with both the aircraft enthusiast and the model maker in mind, the publishers of the Warpaint series try to establish as near as possible a comprehensive and accurate account of a single aircraft type within one set of covers. Each book sets standards in the quality of the history and the accuracy of the drawings both in colour, side and plan view and the 1:72nd scale plans that appear in each one.
Aircraft titles range from World War 2 to the post war period, and include a majority of RAF and Fleet Air Arm aircraft but also feature many USAAF, USAF, US Navy and Luftwaffe machines. Variety is the keyword in the attempt to satisfy as many specialist interest groups as possible during the year. Few contemporary aircraft are featured as an attempt is made to write and illustrate the definitive history of the aircraft involved, although it is appreciated that in some cases there might be a few still flying in non-operational roles.
The publishers employ authors who have established reputations in aircraft historical journalism where their own notes and files can produce facts and data that may, in many cases, not have been published hitherto. Artists used for the illustrations are also well-established in their field and very knowledgeable on camouflage colours and the use of computer generated art work which adds so much to the completeness of the finished book.
