Messerschmitt Bf 109F

Messerschmitt Bf 109F Book Review

By David L. Veres

Date of Review November 2013 Title Messerschmitt Bf 109F
Author Robert Michulec Publisher Mushroom Model Publications
Published 2013 ISBN 9788361421757
Format 128 pages, softbound MSRP (USD) $29.00


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.
