Dambusters and the Lancaster
By Desmond Brennan 64 pages £20.00
Few military exploits have captured the public's imagination as much as the famous 'Dambusters' raid on the night of 16 - 17 May 1943. To mark the 80th anniversary of the escapade Guideline present Dambusters and the Lancaster, a comprehensive study of the raid itself, the background and planning that led up to it, and the men and machinery that took part, as well as a reasoned study of the aftershocks. Author Des Brennan, one of our most respected writers on military aviation history, has gathered together all the threads of this astonishing tale and woven them together to present a book that pays tribute to one of the most remarkable feats of World War 2.

Colour Conundrum - Compendium no 3
  £23.00

Author Paul Lucas
Guideline Publications is pleased to announce the third 'Colour Conundrum Compendium'.

This volume collates two groups of articles, the first dealing with the RAF's 'exotic' Tropical Land and Sea Schemes and colours from 1933-1945, while the second deals with the unusual RAF Photographic Reconnaissance Schemes and colours from 1939-1945. As with Compendium No.2, this volume contains new material that has not been previously published in Scale Aircraft Modelling. These two new Conundrums contain material that dovetails into the Tropical Land and Sea Schemes section in such a way that the result is a volume containing more information on the development and possible use of these schemes than has ever appeared in any one place before.
Rather than reproduce the articles in the order that they originally appeared in Scale Aircraft Modelling, an effort has been made to group related articles loosely together. In this volume, there are two groups of articles, the first dealing with the RAF's 'exotic' Tropical Land and Sea Schemes and colours from 1933-1945, while the second deals with the 'unusual' RAF Photographic Reconnaissance Schemes and colours from 1939-1945.
Because of the way that the reprinted articles were originally written and published, there is some degree of repetition between subject areas where the early phases of the Tropical Schemes development work is concerned. Because the original articles do not go into any great detail about this early phase, the first new Conundrum attempts to fill this gap to some extent by discussing the development of RAF upper surface camouflage from the beginning of the work in 1933 up to and including what might be considered to be a large scale Service Trial of the prevailing camouflage concept by the Emergency Air Garrison in Malta during the Abyssinian Crisis of 1935/6. The brown and grey Scapa Flying Boat must have been quite a sight. . .
The second new Conundrum deals with the intriguing two and three colour schemes adopted by the Wellingtons and Fairchild 91 of the Sea Rescue Flight and No.294 (ASR) Squadron operating over the eastern Mediterranean, North African Coast and Egyptian desert between 1941 and 1943. This topic expands upon the material presented in the Mediterranean Maritime Schemes chapter and as far as we are aware, is a subject that has never been explored before.

Colour Conundrum - Compendium no 2
  £23.00

Colour Art work by Mark Rolfe and Jan Polc
Author Paul Lucas

Guideline Publications is pleased to announce the second 'Colour Conundrum Compendium'.
With this further release the Author focuses on three themes: the RAF in the Second World War, the Post War Fleet Air Arm, and related products of the United States' aviation industry that are intertwined with both the other subject areas. To this has been added a completely new chapter on the B-17Cs of 90 Sqn in 1941, which along with the 4 pages of updates presenting new findings on some of the subjects, makes for an additional 12,000 previously unpublished words.
Quoting extensively from primary sources, the articles also provide valuable insight into the organisation and administration of the air force, and the many thousands of documents and memos that passed from office to office behind the scenes, providing background and understanding that add depth and focus to a model, as well as an opportunity to understand why a specific colour scheme may have been either selected or rejected.
With original research based on surviving records in the National Archive at Kew the aim of these articles is to throw fresh light upon some old questions, to challenge some long held views on aircraft camouflage and markings, and to pose new questions that had arisen as a result of the research to which the answers were not yet known.

Modern Railways Illustrated - Changing Trains -
  £11.99

By Gary Hatcher

The UK railway scene is currently undergoing a dramatic change, as poignant for the many who have engaged with it in recent years as was the transitional period of the 1960s when steam gave way to diesel and electric. With hundreds of new trains finally coming into service we are witnessing the beginning of the end for the second generation of DMUs and EMUs, and faces and numbers that had become familiar friends are once more finding their way to the scrapyards, to the regret of thousands of enthusiasts and spotters who have followed them over the years. But despite this, the railway remains a vital and fascinating refuge, full of interest for new generations of railway children to whom a 'Deltic' or a 'Royal Scot' may be an exciting curiosity, but may not necessarily be as essential as copping a Nova 3, or getting that last Class 150/1 for haulage. The railway didn't end in 1969, any more than it did in 1948 or 1923, or indeed 1993. It's just changed a bit and moved on, and it takes very little effort of will to move with it.
The articles and photographs presented here are snapshots taken over the last few years from a collection I started building to record the transition from second to third generation, and are intended to convey my love of, and enthusiasm for, the subject matter, something I encounter on platform endings and at lineside locations wherever I go.

Colour Art work by Mark Rolfe and Jan Polc
Author Paul Lucas

What to build next? Inspirational and original reference material has been a cornerstone of SAM since its inception, and 'Colour Conundrum' is designed specifically to offer the modeller something different. With original research based on surviving records in the National Archive at Kew the aim of these articles is to throw fresh light upon some old questions, to challenge some long held views on aircraft camouflage and markings, and to pose new questions that had arisen as a result of the research to which the answers were not yet known.
Quoting extensively from primary sources, the articles also provide valuable insight into the organisation and administration of the air force, and the many thousands of documents and memos that passed from office to office behind the scenes, providing background and understanding that add depth and focus to a model, as well as an opportunity to understand why a specific colour scheme may have been either selected or rejected.
Author Paul Lucas' work is rightly regarded as both valuable and unique in current aviation publishing, and we are proud to be able to present this selection, collected together in book form for the first time due to overwhelming demand from readers.

Lineside photography in the North Country
Author Ian Edmondson


This issue is available as a Digital Edition SOON
Please click here to buy the digital version


'Northern Powerhouse' is the first in our railway bookazine series and showcases the lineside photography of Ian Edmondson. Born and raised next to the old Lostock Hall shed, Ian's dedication to getting 'that one shot' has led him to travel the North of England seeking out locations that have enabled him to combine the best of the spectacular scenery of Yorkshire, Cumbria, and his native Lancashire, with the most interesting and unusual of the freight and passenger workings that thread through the area.
Often rising before dawn and driving for hours to stake out a single freight working, Ian's passion both for the trains and the landscape around them finds focus in this remarkable collection of images that showcase not only his commitment and passion, but also reassures us that the railway lines that called out to the likes of Ivo Peters and Eric Treacy are still there, and have plenty to offer if we only know when and where to look.
It is the author's hope that this collection - presenting images of contemporary workings in locations still current - will assist and inspire other enthusiasts to go out and find for themselves the best that Britain's railways still have to offer .

Combat Colours no 1 - The Messerschmitt Bf109
  £15.00

The Messerschmitt Bf 109E on the Western Front
By Peter Scott Series Editor Neil Robinson

The objective of this book is to document the colour schemes carried by the Luftwaffe's Messerschmitt Bf 109E fleet on the 'Western Front' throughout 1940. This period encompassed the 'Phoney War' ('Sitzkrieg'); the assaults on Denmark and Norway; the offensive on France and the Low Countries; and the Battle of Britain.
Many other works have covered Luftwaffe colour schemes in detail, so by way of an introduction, I would like to explain how the colour schemes of the following profiles were established. This preamble therefore takes a slightly different perspective from previous works.
