Correlation does NOT imply causation...having written that, all of Tamiya's WWII 1/32 subjects are in "The Great Book of WWII Aircraft" (https://www.amazon.c...s/dp/0517160242) and none are not. The book only covers twelve aircraft.

Cheers, Tom

Quite possibly one of the oldest books that I own, and I still love it.

All of their 1/32 subjects are also in Vintage Wings of Canada, where Tamiya had full access..

The Mosquito was on loan for a few months there too.

Are you messing with my head? Tamiya never did a B-17 in 1/32.

It might be that the book & Tamiya have independently decided that, in an attempt to garner the most sales, they both chose the most popular airframes?

For one coffee-table type book covering all WWII aircraft, this one is pretty good:

It's a great book; i had the big bound volume, and some of the individual titles for many years. Beautiful artwork and line drawings. Not sure how accurate they were but.... those big F6F illustrations had a powerful effect on me.
