In this fourth issue of Aces High, Daniel deals with the Mediterranean Theatre of Operations (MTO) during WWII. Bearing in mind that it would be impossible to cover the aircraft of all the nations which fought in this area, in just one issue, we have this time decided to focus on just Luftwaffe and Royal Air Force subjects.
Dani has chosen the most iconic machines used by the greatest pilots: a Spitfire Mk.Vb, with its distinctive Vokes tropical filter; a Kittyhawk Mk.I, wearing the famous sharkmouth nose marking; a Bf 109 F-4 trop, finished as the mount of the legendary ace, Hans-Joachim Marseille; a Beaufighter Mk.VIF, with a slightly more unusual desert night-fighter scheme, and a Bf 110 E-2 trop, which served as fighter, bomber and ground attack aircraft. To complement our aircraft builds, we include step-by-step articles which show you how to paint a pilot figure, and a half-tracked truck.
