    Summary:
    During the 1960s and 70s, Profile Publications Ltd produced over 200 A5 format books aircraft; mainly military subjects from WWI and WWII. Generally running to 10pp including covers, they offered a well-detailed overview of the development and use of each aircraft type, often including the assignment of individual serials aircraft to particular sqns, and providing tabulated weights and performance data. However, their greatest contribution to modellers were full colour 3-view and side elevation drawings depicting various sqn markings. While often reproduced in part, sometimes illegally as they remain within copyright although no-one seems to know who owns it now, and overtaken by Windsock Datafiles (for WWI subjects), they remain a reasonable source of information for modellers. I don't know who originally compiled this list of subjects, but they have my sincere thanks!

    Yes I picked up several here and there. Usually tucked away in a hobby shop.
    There were also bound editions of a whole series. I forget how many in each volume.

    I remember the ads that had the whole list you could check off for ordering. I checked off many. Never had the funds to order.

    IF I recall correctly I have:

    110 FIAT BR.20
    193 Bristol M.1
    212 Fairey Swordfish I - IV
    219 Heinkel He219

    I have seen a CD for sale that includes copies of the whole series. Price seems to hover around $10.00 USD.

    I see these quite often on eBay. I have picked up a few there, all for less than ten bucks each.
