Special Order—Subject to Availability
World War I was the first war in which aircraft were deployed on a large scale. Observation balloons had already been employed in several wars, and Germany employed airship Zeppelins for reconnaissance over the North Sea and strategic bombing raids over England.

Airplanes were also originally used mostly for reconnaissance. Pilots and engineers learned from their experiences leading to the development of new designs such as fighters, bombers, and ground-attack airplanes. Ace fighter pilots became popular heroes and the designs have remained close to aviation enthusiasts' hearts ever since.

The huge impact the recent release of World War I aircraft modeling kits has had on aircraft modeling is showcased here with projects presented by world renowned modelers. The focus is on how to get the best from these fantastic kits whether you're a World War I aircraft novice or well experienced, with guides on painting techniques and finishes, and subjects such as rigging, all backed by advice on available after-market details and decals.

A feature on painting the large range of figures available will guide even the novice figure painter to achieve good results with information and reference on the air crew's uniforms.
