56. Vickers FB5
The Vickers FB .5 two-seat pusher is one of WWI's immortal aircraft and a VC was awarded to an FB.5 pilot. Unmatched historical narrative by J M Bruce with over 77 photos, plus detailed scale plans, official handbook sketches and three rear cover colour profiles make for another DATAFILE classic with less than half a dozen copies left in print!
This is a truly graphic history of the FB.5 with over 77 rare archive photos to support Jack Bruce's stirring narrative. As well as the usual 1:48 and 1:72 scale drawings there are three pages of factory diagrams, airframe close-ups and detailed 1915 schematics for nacelle fixtures and fittings. Full colours and markings notes come with rear cover colour profiles by series editor Ray Rimell..
