270180 - BRISTOL BLENHEIM Mk1 & Mk1F - Modellers Photographic Archive 1
By Alan Price and Mark Postlethwaite
The first in a new series of books aimed directly at modellers and artists.
The Modeller's Photographic Archive series is essentially a 96 page A4 landscape photo book format using the very best original wartime images from various private collections. The landscape format allows the publishers to reproduce images as much as 60cm across (24") when on a double page spread, a huge increase compared to standard A4 portrait publications. Also included are a 'walkaround' section, notes on camouflage and markings, squadron details and then a profile section where 13 different aircraft are profiled with accompanying photos.
Using only wartime photos, this series of books will prove invaluable to historians, modellers and artists alike, providing the clearest window yet on each aircraft type.
Part one of the MPA series covers the Bristol Blenheim MkI and MkIf. There have been many publications on the Blenheim over the years but most concentrate on the MkIV long nosed version. This is the first book devoted to the MkI and the authors have managed to discover some wonderfully crystal clear photos from the archives to illustrate this unsung hero of the RAF.
