    Volume 1 - 1st printing. "Modelling the Harrier I and II!" By Glen Ashley, and a Robert Oehler.

It has also seen service for Italy, Spain, and India. Distinctive and widely recognised, the Harrier was the world's first VSTOL aircraft and its appeal for the modeller is clear.

Advice on weathering, superdetailing, conversions and display bases combines with a wealth of recommended reference sources to create this packed and informative guide to modelling the Harrier.

    Volume 2 - 1st printing. "Modelling the Messerschmitt Bf 110!" By Brett Green, and Robert Oehler. The Messerschmitt Bf 110 was undoubtedly one of the most significant aircraft of World War II. Despite suffering setbacks in the summer of 1940 at the hands of the RAF, it continued to be used effectively in other theatres and roles until the last days of the war, particularly as a night fighter against RAF Bomber Command's strategic bombing campaign over the Reich. This title shows you how to correct and convert basic 1/48-scale kits of the Bf 110 into many different variants, using a wide selection of aftermarket detail sets, conversions, accessories and decals for both day and night fighter schemes.

    Volume 3 - 1st printing. "Modelling the F-4 Phantom II!" By Geoff Coughlin, Neil Ashby, and Robert Oehler. The 'Phabulous' Phantom first took to the air on 27 May 1958 and has been in service around the world for many decades. The United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Egypt, Germany, Greece, Iran, Israel, Japan, South Korea, Spain and Turkey have all operated this powerful aircraft. The Phantom starred in both the Vietnam War and Operation Desert Storm, and in its service career has flown every traditional military mission. With many F-4 variants in service (from FG.1s to 'Wild Weasels'), and some 25 scale model kits currently available, the possibilities for modelling this subject are endless. There are few guides currently available to the F-4 modeller: this book seeks to redress the imbalance, providing an in-depth and step-by-step approach to modelling this plane across a variety of scales, types, and national schemes.

    Volume 4 - 1st printing. "Modelling the M3/M5 Stuart Light Tank!" By Steven J. Zaloga and Robert Oehler. The M3 and M5 Stuart were the most significant light tanks of the US Army, as well as many other allied armies, during World War II. They have proved to be popular modelling subjects ever since, largely due to the large number of kits available in many different scales covering a broad selection of the different variants used. The Stuarts were also painted in a wide range of colourful camouflage schemes, reflecting their widespread service, and this adds to their appeal. This title shows a number of different ways to model this popular tank in 1/35 scale, covering construction, painting and weathering the vehicle. Softcover, 7-in. x 10-in., 80 pages, full color.

    Volume 6 - 1st printing. "Modelling the SdKfz 251 Halftrack!" By Robert Oehler. The adoption of blitzkrieg tactics in the German Army prior to the start of World War II meant that Germany needed a new kind of fighting vehicle to transport troops around the battlefield in support of the Panzer spearheads. It was in response to this requirement that the armored halftrack was developed during the mid-1930s. The SdKfz 251 halftrack soon became one of the most numerous vehicles in German service during World War II, with over 15,000 produced. This title provides detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to build some of the most popular SdKfz 251 variants in both 1/72 and 1/35 scale. It also includes camouflage paint schemes and markings. Softcover, 7-in. x 10-in., 80 pages, full color. Cover price $19.95.

    Volume 7 - 1st printing. "Modelling the De Havilland Mosquito!" By Roy Sutherland. First entering service in 1941 the legendary 'all-wooden' Mosquito was one of the best twin-engined aircraft of its size to see action in World War II. The addition of radar turned the Mosquito into the RAF's premier night fighter, and it achieved great success in the defence of Britain, with some 600 raiders and 600 V1 rockets falling to its guns between 1942 and 1945. The design's superb performance, and ability to escape interception by enemy fighters also made the Mosquito the ideal choice for the RAF's photographic reconnaissance force. This wide range of roles across multiple theatres and air forces are all reflected in the variety of kits built and colour schemes shown throughout this book. Softcover, 7-in. x 10-in., 80 pages, full color. Cover price $19.95.

The addition of scale figures helps provide depth, weight and realism to a model - yet working with figures continues to be most armour modellers' worst nightmare. This book provides tips and techniques for building, converting and painting World War II German Army Panzer crew figures, in clear step-by-step instructions. Among the topics covered are how to paint different uniforms using enamels and oils; converting and scratch-building figures; painting heads and flesh tones; and weathering clothing.

This book is packed with easy to follow super-detailing and finishing instructions for building the IS-2, IS-3, and IS-3M variants, as well as for the prototype ISU-152, and features kits from manufacturers such as Dragon, Tamiya, and Fujimi.

In the second half of World War II the German Army faced numerically superior armoured forces on the Eastern and Western Fronts. In order to counter this threat, tank destroyer production was increased. One of these tank destroyers was the Jagdpanzer 38 (t), or 'Hetzer', which proved to be a successful design with over 2,500 being produced in the 14 months before the end of the war. This title provides all the information that AFV modellers will need to build variants of the Jagdpanzer 38 (t) 'Hetzer', including the Bergepanzer 38 (t) recovery vehicle.

    Volume 13 - 1st printing. "Modelling US Army Tank Destroyers of World War II!" By Steven J Zaloga.

These vehicles form an attractive modelling subject; their open turrets provide plenty of opportunity for detail work, as demonstrated here by the author in clear step-by-step instructions.

The Tiger has proved to be one of the most popular modelling subjects of all time, with a vast and ever-increasing range of kits, aftermarket products and references available.

    Volume 39 - 1st printing. "Modelling the F4F Wildcat!" By Mark Glidden. The F4F Wildcat was an aircraft of the type of which legends are made.

This book details projects that encompass four variants of the F4 Wildcat. As they were supplied to a number of air forces during the war, including the RAF, there is a wide range of markings available to modellers which are also dealt with in detail.
