SAM Camouflage & Markings No 1
Formed out of an amalgamation of the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service on 1 April 1918, the Royal Air Force is the world's oldest independent Air Arm, and the camouflage and markings carried by its aircraft have proved to be amongst the most fascinating aspects of its subsequent history. This title covers the 'forgotten' immediate post-World War Two period, and deals with the fascinating changes from the wartime colour schemes and markings, into the post-war National markings, painted Aluminium finishes, and re-introduction of underwing serials. Thirty-six pages of full colour, three- and four-views, and profile illustrations, and scores of photographs - many from private collections. An ideal reference for modellers and aviation enthusiasts alike.
