Supermarine Attacker

Supermarine Attacker Book Review

By David L. Veres

Date of Review December 2013 Title Supermarine Attacker
Author Tony Buttler Publisher Guideline Publications
Published 2013 ISBN n/a
Format 44 pages, softbound MSRP (GBP) £13.00


Considering Trumpeter's 1:48 Supermarine Attacker?  Tackling Classic Airframes' rarity?  Or even Frog's ancient offering?

You need Supermarine Attacker by Tony Buttler – No.94 in the Warpaint Series.

Format follows the publisher's proven prescription.  After illuminating notes on Attacker design, development and testing, text traverses deployment and service to export and the single research derivative.  Beside the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm, Pakistan remains the only military to field this sleek, but conventional jet.

Dozens of outstanding Richard Caruana color profiles provide plenty of project inspiration.  Manufacturer's drawings, 1:72 plans, tables, and at least 100 B&W and color photos – including detail shots – season this Supermarine story.  And a list of available model kits and accessories neatly wraps things up.

Warpaint's handy handbook has it all!
