The Grumman Wildcat is all set to take its place in the line-up of Valiant Wings' Airframe & Miniature detailed reference books.

Valiant Wings Publishing is pleased to announce that our next title in the Airframe & Miniature series is:

Airframe & Miniature No.22 The Grumman F4F Wildcat (including GM FM-1 & FM-2) – A Complete Guide to Grumman’s First ‘Cat’ by Richard A. Franks.

The Wildcat has been a popular aircraft type with modellers and has recently been the subject of several 

new toolings in all scales, especially in 1/72nd and 1/48th. Our latest book will go some way towards 

unpicking the different variants and detail differences that apply to the type.

This twenty-second book in our much-acclaimed series has 208 pages packed with vital information that 

no active modeller and Wildcat enthusiast should be without.

• 55+ pages of technical information

• 45+ pages of walk-around images and technical diagrams

• 25+ pages of camouflage and markings

• 25+ pages of model builds and modelling information

• 200+ photographs including wartime images

• Colour side views by Richard J. Caruana

• 3D isometric views of all variants by Juraj Jankovic

• Specially commissioned extensive full kit builds by 

Steve A. Evans and Libor Jekl

• Specially commissioned front cover artwork by Jerry Boucher
