Opis produktu:

Air War Over the Falklands Commemorating the 30th Anniversary of the conflict between the United Kingdom and Argentina over the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands in the spring of 1982. The book covers the color schemes and markings of the British and Argentinean aircraft that were used in combat in what became known as the Falklands War. Featuring such types as the Sea Harrier FRS.1, Harrier GR.3, Avro Vulcan, numerous Ro Full description

This book is a collection of aircraft profiles in colour more than anything else. It still opens with a brief summary of the Falklands War though. Once that's out of the way it's on to the profiles. Just browsing through the book gave me the impression that every single aircraft that flew in the war had it's own drawing included, that's how many there are.
Most of them are sideviews, with a four-view page spread every now and then. But unlike in most similar books the views are not always the same sides. Some views are right hand sides, other left hand sides. This is very helpful for me as a modeler, as it allows me to fill in missing details for a particular aircraft by looking at the other drawings. Also the examples where all four sides are shown are very helpful.
The book is devided into sections, each dealing with a particular aircraft type. There are 11 pages on the Sea Harrier, displaying all three different schemes in detail (Dark Sea Grey over White, Overall Dark Sea Grey and the Overall Medium Sea Grey sheme). The Harrier GR3 gets 3 pages (8 different sideviews and one four side view). The Vulcan also has 3 pages, and the Victor has 1. The Nimrod and Chinook share two pages, showing three Nimrod side views and one of the lonely Chinook. Four Hercules sideviews on two pages complete the British fixed wing aircraft section.
This is followed by the British helicopter section. This has 2 pages of Wasp HAS1's, 3 pages of Wessexes, 2 pages of Sea Kings and one wiht Lynx HAS2's and a half page with 2 Scouts. There are 2 pages with 7 Gazelles to complete the British helicopter part. As a bonus there is a 2-page section on the Phantom (in light grey).
