Dot Reference Page

In an effort to compile information helpful to modelers and historians interested in inter-war civil aviation we have created this reference page containing guides to related reference books, priodicals and articales as well as links to online historical photo archives.

As with many sections of our new website, this area is under construction and some sections that we have planned for do not have any information available at this time. Please check our News Page often to see our progress.

Reference Books

Here you will find listings of reference books with inter-war civil content, either by subject or as a full alphabetical listing (this listing includes all cover images and may take some time to load). Some books fit into more than one category, so you may notice some repetition. An effort ahs been made to provide the title, author, ISBN number, and some information as to the content and its quality as a reference as well as cover images. When possible links to online reviews are provided, as well. In some cases only a cover image and title are shown. If you can help complete these listings or contribute new material, please contact us.
