Published in 1969, 'Fighting Colours' is a guide to the camouflage and markings of RAF fighter aircraft from 1937-1969, and first appeared as a series of articles in 'Airfix Magazine' as a guide for the aircraft modeller. The book works its way through different periods with a short operational history of each aircraft type accompanied by details of the camouflage and markings used in that period. This allows you to understand the context in which changes were adopted. The text is supported by numerous monochrome photos and black and white line drawings of aircraft types illustrating colour schemes through the use of different types of shading described under a key.
