116. Handley Page O/400
THE first volume of Colin Owers' detailed study of the Handley Page O/100 and O/400 bombers of WWI provides a wealth of data for anyone building various ancient and modern model kits of the famous 'Bloody Paralyser'. Detailed service history and a full log of all operational losses are supported by over 60 rare wartime images showing markings' variations;airframe; ordnance details and more. The inside covers also feature detailed airframe sketches from the official O/100 Technical/Rigging notes that will be an absolute gift to modellers and not forgetting the author's own 1:72 scale drawings spread over five centre pages that offer scrap views of variants and night bombing equipment.-internal fuselage layouts are also shown. With three Bob Pearson colour profiles on the rear cover this is a great reference source for those building the classic Airfix 1:72 scale model, the new Copper State Models 1:48 resin and the forthcoming 1:32 scale Wingnut Wings kit!
