Picked up these books in chapters and have to say a bargain they are. Some wonderful colour schemes in the aircraft books.

I get one of each of the Warpaints when they come out, Started the Legendery Alan W Hall and in the old Sam format they focus on one type of aircraft, They cover Props and Jets with some great info.

I get the Odd Crowood book and some other books that take my fancy now and then.
Cheers
