The latest Windsock Datafile presents a fascinating glimpse into the beginnings of British military aviation in the run-up to WW1 and the months that followed the outbreak of fighting:
Into the WWI Centenary year!
"It is fitting that in this opening centenary year of the 'The Great War', our first 1914-published DATAFILE concentrates on the very first Royal Aircraft Factory BE series, one of these being among the first RFC aeroplanes to arrive in France just after hostilities began in August. Our author, Paul R Hare, is a specialist in the WWI RAF Farnborough designs and has produced a fine pictorial record of these pioneering reconnaissance types. Their full history and development is supported by over 70 archive photos with nine pages of scale drawings by Mick Davis that not only graphically illustrated the development cycle of the early BEs, but also provides 1:48/1:72 GAs of the unequal-span BE2a versions as well as the late BE2b: structural drawings form a part of the set - all based on original 1914 factory drawings.

In addition Ronny Bar provides three hyper-detailed colour profiles and on the inner covers are colour close-ups of Hendon's superb reproduction BE2a providing even more valuable documentation for modellers. All topped-off by Paul Monteagle's evocative cover painting - 'The RFC goes to war!"

Price 11.80 plus p&p direct from www.windsockdatafilespecials.co.uk or selected outlets worldwide.
