WE turn back the clock to the very earliest of British WWI aircraft with Colin Owers' unique profile of the very first Avro 504 designs that presaged the famous 504K. As well as the detailed narrative that includes a full history,colour notes,tabular data and rigging sketches from original handbooks,there are 100 rare photos,plus seven pages of 1:72 and 1:48 scale Marty Digmayer drawings covering the A,B,C and J variants.Ronny Bar contributes nine superb colour profiles for the cover set which marks the return of Paul Monteagle who produced the unique painting of Flt.Lt. Stanley Vincent Sippe over the Rhine Valley en route to attack the Friedrichshafen Zeppelin sheds at Lake Constance.
This fascinating DATAFILE provides fresh and authentic coverage of these pioneering types,with some surprises along the way. These placid Avros were not reserved solely for pure training service,but some enjoyed really active lives- all of which is carefully related here in 32 packed pages.
