About the Author

Raised in Port Moresby, Michael Claringbould is a globally recognised expert on the New Guinea air war and Japanese aviation in particular.


This is a detailed and highly researched book with colour profiles for 82 different aircraft [...] This is a colourful book which displays the considerable research and interpretation which must have been put into it. It is highly recommended for the modeller and the air wargamer but would also reward the general reader with an interest in these campaigns. * Miniature Wargames *
Extensive discussions about colors and markings, including special markings, or the absence of markings, explain the camouflage schemes. While the 58 black and white photos and 10 color photos provide the source, the 85 color profiles provide the modeler or miniature painter with the details and inspiration. * Historical Miniatures Gaming Society *
Beyond the appealing artwork Claringbould includes historical background for each unit, plus a few other odds and ends such as a chart showing the timelines of JAAF fighter units deployment in New Guinea. * Stone and Stone *
Valuable photographs including color photographs, and original artwork, enhance the deeply researched text. I consider this an essential title for modelers and students of the JAAF in the South Pacific. Highly recommended. * Aeroscale Kitmaker *
... a book that will definitely be used over and over again for reference. * Modeling Madness *
