Early February 2022, we will launch the new Duke Hawkins Classic Series, focussing on Classic aircraft and warbirds, by introducing 2 books. The first of the series is the result of 2 years work and will be a 116 page book on the Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IX and XVI. Every detail of the aircraft will be show - there are nearly 300 photos - from fuselage, cockpit, wings, landing gear and of course an extensive chapter on the maintenance of the aircraft, including the engine. All the photos were made of airworthy aircraft, focussing on the aircraft that are in original state. Of the 39 airworthy Mk. IX and Mk.XVI Spitfires in the world, over 30 are included in this book. This is the cover:

together with the Spitfire, a second book in this new series will be released as well as at least one other book in the current series. More on those later.

 

For those interested, 2022 will see the release of at least 10 new books. 

 

I hope you'll like the result, we sure have had a lot of fun making it.

I just got the okay to announce the two other new books that we are going to release in February, next to the Spitfire Mk.IX & Mk.XVI already mentioned. 

 

In the current series, the new title is a 140 page book on the Sukhoi Su-22 Fitter. It is in line with our other books, but I'm particularly proud of the extensive maintenance chapter; we had the possibility to visit the maintenance hangar at Swidwin Air Base in Poland several times!

The other novelty is the second book in the Classics Series (the first one being the Spitfire) and this is a 116 page book on the T-6 Harvard / Texan. What a great looking machine! I've been looking for another T-6 in 1/32, so that I can build it in maintenance with all the side fuselage panels removed. I'd love to build that. This is what the cover looks like:

Filled with details, action photography and information that I hope is interesting. 

 

I hope you think these are interesting and remember: you read it first on LSP !!
