Airframe Extra No.7
The seventh title in the much-acclaimed Airframe Extra series: ‘The Suez Crisis – Empire's End’.
Many active scale modellers like to build subjects based on a theme or historical event. This series looks at specific areas and events in the history of aerial warfare.
Covers the historical background prior to the conflict and aerial operations by all sides from 28th October to the ceasefire on 7th November 1956. The historical narrative is by Steve A. Evans with numerous period images. There are colour profiles and top-views by Richard J Caruana.
AE07 features 7 specially commissioned kit builds:
1/48th Meteor NF Mk 13, N.A. P-51D and Republic RF-84F Thunderstreak by Steve A. Evans; 1/72nd Meteor F Mk 8, Sea Hawk FGA Mk 6 and Piper Cub by Libor Jekl; and 1/72nd Il-28 Beagle by Steve A. Evans.
