Squadron/Signal Publications 1992 089747273X / 9780897472739 1st Edition; 1st Printing Paperback Near Fine with no dust jacket Illustrated by Joe Sewell 
Oblong magazine in archival sleeve for protection. We ship within 24 hours. Scarce in this condition. See scan of actual book being offered. After WWII there was a need for multi-role aircraft thus the Hawker Hunter was designed. The RAF developed several different types of Hunter. Sweden and the Netherlands looked at the Hunter and models were sold to the Swiss Air Force and the Republic of Singapore, the Jordanian Air Force, Sultan of Oman and Nato were also consumers of this versitle plane. This publication is a must for model builders. There is a center section with color illustations of the various Hunters. "Hawker Aircraft is most famous for its WW2 fighter plane, the Hurricane. After WW2, the British needed something to match the MIG-15. The Hunter was first flown in 1949, but production did not start until 1953 after the Korean War. Just under 2,000 of these multi-role jets were built and served with the Royal Air Force" reviewer. ; Photographs, Drawings; 8.30 X 7.90 X 0.20 inches; 50 pages
