The Real Colors for aircraft models could not be introduced without releasing a special book devoted to this subject. Renowned researchers Maciej Go?ralczyk, Gerald T. Ho?gl, Ju?rgen Kiroff, Nicholas Millman and Mikhail V. Orlov teamed up in order to produce the most up-to-date reference book on the aircraft colors of the main WWII adversaries: Germany, United States, Great Britain and Soviet Union.
The resulting study is a comprehensive guide to the colors and camouflage schemes, presented on over 200 pages and illustrated with several color profiles, document reprints and dozens of b/w and color photos, many of which are very rare. Included is the latest information on the Luftwaffes late war colors, which have been reproduced as scale colors on the basis of the original paint factory recipes by Gerald T. Ho?gl and Ju?rgen Kiroff. For the very first time, the unparalleled research on the Soviet Air Force colors done by Mikhail V. Orlov is introduced to the non-Russian readers. Nicholas Millmans archival research brings us accurate reproduction and description of the colors used by the USAAF, US Navy and RAF/FAA.,p>
This book is a true must-have for anyone with even a slight interest in WWII aircraft colors.
