This famous Italian brand will continue to be known for having introduced many innovations in the world of modeling, starting with the wide dissemination of newly available decals, the first large-scale military motorcycles and the first European armored models in 1/72.

One of the most unusual and remarkable American fighter aircraft, the F-82 Twin Mustang was the last mass production propeller-driven fighter acquired by the U.S. Air Force. Originally intended as a very long-range fighter escort for the Boeing B-29 Superfortress during World War II, it arrived too late to see combat and evolved into a night and all-weather fighter during the post-war years. Combat operations in the Korean War followed, along with a host of other dynamic episodes of deployment. This work traces the developmental, operational, and combat history of this unique American fighter and features 120 photographs and illustrations, many of which have never been published before.
Seven chapters, all extensively illustrated, cover the aircraft's development, descriptions of the variants and subtypes, details of initial entry into service, three chapters covering the F-82's service in the Korean War, and a final chapter detailing the type's removal from the Korean War Theater in February 1952, to see out its operational days in the Alaskan Air Defense Command.
