A series of books written and illustrated by leading military aviation specialists, building into a connected history of the operations of the world's major combat air forces – the men, the missions, the machines, the markings.

 

What modeling madness is writing about the Airwar series : 

In 1968, Osprey started its publishing with the Arco-Aircam Aviation series. This ran into the early 1970's. Incorporating a basic text, many photos, and many color profiles, this series was readily accepted by modelers ; copies can still be found at used book shops, swap meets, and the like. Three years later, Osprey branched out into uniforms with its “Men-At-Arms” series which continues today and has recently reached Volume #375.

 

Osprey’s publications are familiar to most modelers and include the Vanguard, Elite Warrior, Aircraft of the Aces, Elite Units, Combat Units, and Essential Histories, to name a few. But one series is near and dear to many modelers’ hearts : the Airwar series, issued between 1977 & 1979. By the early 1980s, this series had virtually disappeared from dealers’ shelves. Long out-of-print, Osprey has now reprinted those 24 volumes. The authors list includes many experts in their respective fields.

A color art cover with useful detail (some of which were quite novel. #12, for example, has a color cover of a USAAF P-51 engaging Rumanian IAR 80's! )

Approx. 46 pp. of good text, with many, many good photos intermingled.

A center color section containing :

  1. drawings of flight crew & one ground support person ;
  2. 3 side views of assorted aircraft ;
  3. a color four-view of an aircraft ;
  4. detail drawings of unit insignia, nose art, personal markings, etc. ;
  5. a drawing of a piece of ground support equipment–jeep, staff car, ambulance, AA-mounting, bomb trailer, refueling truck, bulldozer, etc.
