Osprey Modelling Manual 18 examines Reginald Mitchell's classic Spitfine - the only RAF type in continuous production throughout WWII (over 20,000 were built in some 40 major variations), and an airframe adaptable as a fighter, fighter-bomber and PR aircraft. This book provides all the details needed to model the main Spitfine Marks - the Mks V and IX - and other Spitfire variants. Includes a full roundup of the models available on the market, details of where you can see the real thing, a select bibliography, and survey of websites of interest.

Author Biography - Jerry Scutts
Jerry Scutts has worked in the field of aviation publishing since the late 1960s, writing over 40 books that have covered a broad spectrum of subject matter ranging from US Navy floatplane fighters in World War 2 to the exploits of the USAAF's Phantom lls over Vietnam. His specialist areas are the Luftwaffe and the US Army Air Forces in World War 2, and he originally appeared on the Osprey list as long ago as 1977, when he wrote the second volume in the now much sought after Air Cam Air War series - many of the jacket illustrations in this series were also painted by him. Jerry has been a regular contributor to Osprey's Aircraft of the Aces series since its inception in 1994.
