​“This work is based on almost 40 years of study of Finnish Air Force aircraft external finish and markings. It started from model building and searching references, then widening to more systematic photographing of the aircraft and ending in various archives.”

- AMPS Indianapolis

“Modelers will love it. Hundreds of illustrations season text. Call-outs cite official colors. Close-ups record key aircraft nuances. And detailed comments and reference shots accompany artwork. But detail enthusiasts will go positively gaga over the brilliant book's seven, fact-packed appendices. There you'll conveniently find massive measures of color & markings minutiae – notably official dimensions and accurate FS matches.”
