So Many Aircraft Publications

This quote pretty much summarizes why we are publishing:

"If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it."

We are working on a series of publications for scale modelers and other aircraft enthusiasts. These publications have a heavy emphasis on photographs and technical details. We will mostly concentrate on subjects that are potentially interesting to modelers, but have not necessarily been extensively covered in detail before.

  1. Dauphin book

    AS.365N Dauphin II in Emergency Medical Service

    Coming very soon! A photo reference of contemporary Dauphin 2 medevac users. Scale modelers will find this book invaluable, with detail pictures, scale plans, as well as information on model kits.

  2. KMHT book

    Aircraft at the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport

    Available now! This book is a pictorial tribute to all the aircraft operating at (and visiting) KMHT, the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport in Southern New Hampshire. The 150-page book features 298 large color pictures about recent and current airliners scheduled to KMHT as well as the many different visitors that the airport sees.

  3. DC-3 book


    A photo reference with a mixture of historical and contemporary pictures of DC-3s and variants (C-47, C-53, etc.). We believe that both scale modelers as well as other DC-3 enthusiasts will find the book interesting.

In Planning

We have some ideas for future publications and are planning more books. Focus is on providing material for scale modelers.

  • de Havilland Tiger Moth (together with Mike Hirsch); we have access to some original de Havilland blueprints, as well as an actual Tiger Moth being restored.
  • Aero L-39 Albatros, mostly about aerobatic teams and other civilian operators.
  • Canadair/Bombardier CRJ & Challenger, guide to scale modelers
  • Building Scale Models of Homebuilt Aircraft (Van's RV series, Bowers Fly-Baby, Pietenpol Air Camper, etc.)
  • Single-engined Cessnas (perhaps also Piper Cherokees and Beechcraft Bonanzas).
  • Northeast US air cargo operations (Wiggins Airways, etc.).
  • Boeing 737, especially in Southwest Airlines' service.
  • Stearman PT-17

This blog post discusses the topic selection a bit more.

How Can You Participate?

If you own the rights to interesting photographs that you think other modelers and aviation enthusiasts would enjoy, we would most definitely like to talk to you. Please contact us.
