Shoehorned between "Emils" and "Gustavs", transitional Bf 109Fs sometimes escape the extensive exposure of other "Augsburg Eagles".
Not if you have this book.
MMP's handy, informative Messerschmitt Bf 109F – part of the publisher's popular Yellow Series – traverses the total tale in 128 pithy pages.
After background notes ondesign and development, contents course through variants, production and modifications. Text next turns to research programs and specifications. I especially enjoyed information on the aircraft's link to Me 209 and Me 309 programs.
Coverage then turns meaty for modelers with nearly 50 color plates – including some inspirational schemes in foreign livery. Add dozens more illustrations – photos, detail drawings, technical manual excerpts, and 1:48 & 1:72 plans. And this tidy little tome will admirably augment your "Fritz" references.
With thanks to Casemate for the review copy.
