The Scimitar File


This is an excellent history of one of the FAA’s most elegant aircraft. This book which is the result of a 15 year research partnership balances the technical detail with first hand accounts from both pilots and ground crew. This comprehensive account is supported by many B/W photographs illustrating the evolution of the Scimitar from the undercarriageless Type 505 and the distinctive V tailed Type 508 through to the trials of the Scimitar prototype and its subsequent front line squadron service. For the model maker there are two pages of colour line drawings depicting various Scimitar colour schemes as part of the 8 page colour section
