British Railways Illustrated

Now approaching its 30th year and long known by its cheerful acronym 'BRILL', British Railways Illustrated is known and respected for the depth and quality of its historically-based articles. Focussing on the nationalised and early modernisation era of British Railways from 1948 to the 1970s, any aspect of vintage railway operations is grist to the mill as long as it is well-researched and written. The camera, we are told, never lies, but it can be 'economical with the truth, so BRILL's team of contributors paint a bigger picture, with extended and informed captions bringing to life the classic black and white photography that constitutes the bulk of its content. Featuring a colour cover, 56 pages of text and, typically, 60-70 high quality black and white images, most issues include maps and plans/diagrams where appropriate. 'History with a good helping of nostalgia' is its hallmark with some humour thrown in. .

Railway Bylines now in its 26th year.


Companion magazine to British Railways Illustrated, Railway Bylines, now in its 26th year, focuses on the backwaters of our railway system, bringing to life long-gone industrial systems, country branches, narrow gauge and mineral lines. With a wide-ranging editorial remit the magazine covers the rolling stock, buildings and infrastructure, and its content is largely focussed on pre-1970s subjects, although material is planned and programmed for its interest and rarity and frequently strays outside these parameters. Featuring a colour cover, 56 pages of text and, typically, 60-70 high quality black and white images, most issues include maps and plans/diagrams where appropriate. The research skills and erudition of our team of contributors ensures an informed and enjoyable read with a light touch that matches its often out-of-the-way and off-beat subjects.

Warpaint no 142
Dassault Mirage F1

56 pages * £19.00 * over 12 pages Colour Profiles * 200 Images *detailed plans*

During the 1960s, Dassault commenced development of what would be-come the Mirage F1 as a private venture, alongside the larger Mirage F2. Work on the F1 eventually took precedence over the more costly F2, which was cancelled during the late 1960s. The Armée de l'Air took great interest in the fledgling F1 to meet its requirement for an all-weather interceptor aircraft.

The Mirage F1 was of similar size to the Mirage III and Mirage 5 and was powered by the same SNECMA Atar engine that had been used on the larg-er Dassault Mirage IV, however, unlike its predecessors, it had the layout of a swept wing, but mounted high on the fuselage, and a conventional tail sur-face as used by the F2. Although it had a smaller wingspan than the Mirage III, the Mirage F1 nevertheless proved to be superior to its predecessor, car-rying more fuel while possessing a shorter take-off run and greater manoeu-vrability. This latest addition to the Warpaint series includes all the usual ref-erence and historical material that has made the series the go-to source for modellers and aviation enthusiasts alike. This book is written by Andy Evans and is superbly illustrated by Sam Pearson.

* Complete and detailed history
* Scale plans
* In detail pictures
* Pages of superb colour camouflage drawings and photography
* Complete production list
* Squadrons, units and individual aircraft serials and codes
* Comprehensive specification
