103. AMC DH6
THE de Havilland DH6 was designed from the outset as a training aircraft, a task it performed well enough in the last year of WWI. Noted British aero historian Bruce Robertson relates the convoluted wartime history of the type and its extensive post war use with over 90 unique photos providing unrivalled coverage of this boxy biplane. In addition, Ian Stair presents 1:32 structural detail drawings along with 1:48 and 1:72 scale plans of RAF and Curtiss-powered versions: there are extensive colours and markings notes, three rear cover colour profiles by Ray Rimell and detailed appendices including unit usage, a glossary, bibliography and a full list of civil-registered aircraft.
