Product description

For the very first time all the available information of the early version of the Spad S.XIII fighters will be included in one release. The complete background story of the SPAD company with all the important protagonists as well as the details about the legendary Hispano-Suiza engine itself and the important differences between early and late Spad S.XIII are introduced and explained. Detailed information about the different manufacturers, their production blocks, their different camouflage systems, their lettering, hallmarks, and their types of cockades are pointed out in detail. The importance of the additional wing pockets of the early Spad S.XIII for the French as well as the use of the photographic devices is set forth. A detailed look at all the units in French, Italian, and British air services that flew the type as well as detailed listings of all their Spad aces of WWI and of all pilots that also made ace on a S.XIII are included. More than 40 all new blueprint drawings, more than 70 basic camouflage drawings, and 35 all new 3- or 4-view color profiles of early type S.XIII for France, Italy, and the British Empire complete and round out this extraordinary and meticulously researched work. A benchmark for the hobby historian and modeler as well.
