Book Trailer

This book describes and illustrates all the fighter aircraft used by the Swedish armed forces during from the mid ‘20s to the end of the piston-engine era. Covering both the indigenous designs employed early on through to the American fighters flown for much of the period, the camouflage and markings of these aircraft are described and illustrated in great detail.

Fully illustrated with many rare wartime photos. Color profiles of many representative aircraft. Essential reading for aircraft enthusiasts and model-makers!

Reviews

“…extremely useful title…Wealth of photos combined with superb artwork make it a must for anyone interested in Swedish aviation…”

MODEL AIRPLANE INTERNATIONAL, 2013-03-07


“Let's cut to the chase: I adored this book. I want to marry it. I want to bear its children. Seriously. The matchless Mikael Forslund and inimitable Thierry Vallet illumine Swedish piston-engine warplanes in a visually stunning study from MMP. And text transcends mere "color" coverage”
