Stratus is based in Sandomierz Poland. They print books for Mushroom Model Publications based in the UK in the English language as well as their own line of books in both Polish and English. This book was sent to me by Stratus.
This is the latest volume in the popular “Polish Wings” (Polskie Skrzydla” series, this book continues the story of the MiG-29 in Polish service that was stated in Polish Wings No. 11. This new volume covers the ex-East German aircraft obtained from the Luftwaffe in 2002. Both single and two-seat versions, and the two-seat MiG-29UB’s bought from the Czech Republic earlier.
The many and varied color schemes and markings applied to these aircraft in Poland are described and illustrated, with many color photos and superb color artworks.
It is complete with histories of all the airframes, and detail shots of the cockpits and other areas of the airframe. An essential guide to Polish use of these iconic modern fighters, for aviation enthusiasts, historians and modelers.
The book is in paperback and is in 96 pages in 8 ½” x 11” format.
The book contains 98 color photos of MiG-29 variants and 9 photos of the cockpit interiors of these.
Several of these are very spectacular special schemes. The book also has several data listings.
This book is an essential guide to Polish use of these iconic modern fighters and will be of interest to aviation enthusiasts, historians and modelers. Highly recommended.
