Roy Cross' genius in portraying aircraft in a wide range of illustrative styles has been admired by every generation since World War II. He created many of the distinctive paintings which adorned the famous Airfix model kits that every keen aviation enthusiast will remember with affection. He has drawn many highly-detailed technical cut-away illustrations for leading magazines such as Flight, Aviation Week, Aeroplane and the legendary Aeroplane Spotter.

This book is a collection of some of Roy's best sketches, paintings and technical drawings. They are gathered together in a logical chronological sequence that will offer the reader a visual history of aviation from World War II to the latter part of the last century.

This book is long overdue, in that it will establish the man best known for his Airfix kit-box illustrations as a highly skilled aviation artist of unusually broad talent. Excellent colour reproduction and big images set in landscape format make it clear that his work compares with the very best in aviation art, past and present. .... This big, handsome book will open your eyes to a great artistic talent .. General Aviation
