With Heinkel He 111s and Junkers Ju 88s, Dornier Do 17Zs comprised Hitler's principal bombing assets during the first year of World War II in Europe. But only Croatian and Finnish forces employed the type through final fighting.
Now it's the subject of Valiant Wings' second, lavishly illustrate/d "Airframe Detail".
Super detailers! Grab your drool cups! Subtitled "A Technical Guide", The Dornier Do 17Z includes dozens of photos and authoritative tech-manual excerpts.
Six pages of color plates by Richard J. Caruana also provide plenty of model project inspiration. Extended, explanatory captions accompany illustrations. A timely, step-by-step model build tackles Airfix's new 1:72-scale kit. And four handy appendices list Do 17Z kits, decals, accessories and references.
Building Airfix's effort? Battling Monogram's model? Awaiting ICM's 1:48-scale release? Grab this superb, succinct study!
My sincere thanks to Valiant Wings Publishing for this review copy.
