Mark Peacock has sent details of an updated and extended new edition of Valiant Wings' comprehensive study of the Hawker Typhoon.

Valiant Wings Publishing’s next title in the ever-popular Airframe & Miniature series will be an updated and revised third edition of The Hawker Typhoon – A Complete Guide To The RAF’s Classic Ground-Attack Fighter by Richard A. Franks.

This second book in our much acclaimed series has been out of print for over a year and there has been strong demand to see it back. With new Typhoon kits available in 1/72nd and 1/24th  including the ‘Car Door’ version in the latter scale, it seemed right to make this book available once again.

In addition to the second edition contents it will contain:

• Extra pages of walk-around images and technical diagrams

• An extra 1/24 scale build of the Airfix ‘Car Door’ Typhoon kit by John Wilkes. 

• 176 pages of content

• ISBN 978-1-912932-24-5

A real bonus for the modeller is a set of fold-out 1/48th scale plans

RRP will be only be £22.95 per copy + postage and packing. Pre-orders via the Valiant Wings website,, by ‘phone on 01234 273434 (+44 1234 273434 if calling from outside the UK) or by writing to:
