Valiant Wings Publishing expands one volume into two with Fighter and Sea Mossies

We like the Airframe and Miniatures books from Valiant Wings Publishing. The "all -in-one" approach to covering a subject is what we value the most – well this time it is "all—in-two" as they have split the Mosquito book into two volumes. The fighter and Sea Mossie book has just been released on pre-order – and we have some into about what's inside and how to save a few ducats...

The modelling map in relation to the Mosquito has changed dramatically over the past eighteen years and much more reference material is now available.
