Next to the Curtiss Jenny, Thomas Morse Scouts remain the best known American aeroplanes of WWI. Virtually "mass produced" as a fighter/trainer, the compact, tractable Tommy was later destined for post-war Hollywood stardom with a raft of roles in classics such as Hell's Angels and The Dawn Patrol. Colin Owers presents a richly-informative study with over 70 archive photos supported by contemporary sketches and rigging notes from the 1918 S4C handbook. Martin Digmayer provides detailed scale drawings in 1:48 and 1:72 complete with structural internals, whilst Ronny Bar contributes six diverse colour profiles. Among those is a rare "Agressor" -style Tommy complete with pseudo-German colours and markings for air-to-air combat training. In addition there are 29 colour photos illustrating virtually all the surviving originals in the USA plus Nick Clarke's sole European-based Tommy. Full appendices include colours and markings data, complete specifications and a current log of all Tommys today!
