The best book I have read Supermarine Spitfire. book the subject of the Spitfire with good illustrations and golden nuggets of information.*****, Also check out the second volume for rarities like those Spitfires in USA and other countries colours.

/5(23). A fantastic reference book about Merlin powered Spitfires. Lots of historical and technical info - very good indeed. However there are minor mistakes and some of the kit references are out of date.

Due to excellent detailed information on different Merlin Spitfire marks, book still offers a good bang for a buck/5(6).

Osprey Modelling Manual 18 examines Reginald Mitchell&#;s classic Spitfire — the only RAF type in continuous production throughout WWII (o 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 Spitfire Marks — the Mks V and IX — and other Spitfire variants.

An endless number of pages are dedicated to listing serial numbers and the printing quality of the b&w photos is poor. The text is interesting and offers so much more than most Spitfire books. If you buy this volume, i strongly suggest you also get a book like Spitfire:Flying Legend/5(16). Which book would forumites say is the best all round book on the Supermarine Spitfire.

That is it covers most of the aspects of design, construction, RAF & foreign service, individual historys, personalities involved, survivors, perhaps a bit on Seafires and FAA etc - the definitive book as it were. Spitfire Books offers a superb selection of books and flying memorabilia signed by some of the most distinguished pilots in aviation history.

Here you will find books and collectables from the early pioneering days of the Wright Brothers, through the two world wars to the incredible exploits of the test pilots of the post war era and the space race.
