T-33A/RT-33A Shooting Star Book Review

The West’s most important post-WWII jet trainer gets full-on “Italian Aviation Series” treatment in this installment of the colorful range.
Available North America from Casemate, T-33A/RT-33A Shooting Star totals 68 pages – including covers. And sandwiched therein, author Federico Anselmino recaps Italy’s use of the landmark F-80 derivative in both Italian and English.
The compact, picture-packed chronicle also sports color and B&W photos, detail shots, color artwork, tech-manual excerpts, and even period advertising. The profiles alone provide plenty of potent project potential.

Extended, explanatory captions accompany images. And technical data, acknowledgements, and references conclude contents. But the model build of Heller’s classic 1:72-scale kit is a bit dated.
