Fallen Stars 1: Crashed, Damaged & Captured Aircraft of the USAAF





Publisher: Canfora Graphic Design & Publishing

Price: 22,75€ (EU price)


 At LSM we had the pleasure to read, view and review several past titles from Canfora Publishing, like the Wingspan Vol. I, Vol.II, Rare Wheels, T-60 and others.

 Today we have in hands a new title series: Fallen Stars, which is the vol. I written by Tom Leamlein.

The idea is to compilate the best pictures of fallen aircraft and most of then are totally new to me.

Like others books from Canfora as Wingspan, this one is produced in soft-cover landscape format with 128 glossy pages.




 All the pictures are in black and white with the glorious exception of the one on the back cover.












This volume its only about USAAF airplanes, or after crash landing or in repair, or in move from retirement

Several types are covered in this order:




  • Lockheed P-38 Lightning
  • Bell P-39 Airacobra
  • Curtiss P-40 Warhawk (P-40B/C & E)
  • Republic P-47 Thunderbolt (Bubbletop & Razorback)
  • North American P-51 Mustang (P-51B/C & D)
  • Northrop P-61 Black Widow
  • Douglas A-20 Havoc
  • Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress
  • Consolidated B-24 Liberator
  • North American B-25 Mitchell
  • Martin B-26 Marauder
  • Boeing B-29 Superfortres




 Is the book a good value for the modeler? Yes as it give the modelers, besides inspiration for new projects, very good and useful pictorial information of the airplanes in large and good resolution pictures.

For me, it as works as an inspiration as I just have several new future project in my head... thanks Canfora!

Thanks to Toni and Canfora Publishing for the review sample.
