Review

Mushroom Model Publications (MMP) is based in the UK. They have their books printed in Poland by Stratus in the English language. MMP now has a U.S. distributor for their books, located in Pennsylvania by the name of Casemate.

This book is one of 2 sets of 1/48th scale aircraft line drawings. The book is soft cover, spiral bound and in a 8 ½” x 11” cover format. The pages inside each fold out to twice that 8 ½” dimension for a length of 17”.

Aircraft covered are:

  • The Douglas SBD Dauntless, with 2 views of the SBD-1, one view of the SBD-2, five views of the SBD-3, one view of the SBD-4, one view of the A-24 Banshee and one view of the SBD-5
  • The PZL.23A Karas – 3 views, the PZL.23B –7 views
  • The Blackburn Skua, with one view of the first and the second prototypes and 6 views of the production version. Included is a line drawing of the Lewis machine gun
  • The Blackburn Roc-four views (two on floats) and 3 views of the Roc target tow version
  • The Mikoyan Gurevich MiG-3 early – a 6 view & a MiG-3 late – a six view (one view showing underwing rockets mounted)
  • Boulton Paul Defiant F Mk. I Merlin III –6 view & the Defiant target tow Mk. I – 6 views
  • Republic P-47 Thunderbolt “Bubbletop”- 1 view each of the P-47D-30RE, P-47D-26RE, P-47D-40RE, P-47M-1-RE. 6 views of the P-47D-35RE, 2 views of the P-47N-20-RE and 2 views of the P-47N-25-RE

These 1/48th scale line drawings will of great aid to modelers of these aircraft. Aircraft enthusiasts will find these of interest also. Highly recommended.

I want to thank Mushroom Model Publications (MMP) and Casemate for this review sample.
