Review

Polish airmen were the first to face the fury of Nazi aggression in World War II.

Now MMP admirably augments its new “Single” series of budget monographs with a handy handbook on the PZL P.11c – Poland’s principal fighter during Germany’s September 1939 invasion.

The compact, 24-page compendium includes four pages of 1:72 and 1:48-scale plans by co-author Karnas, 14 pages of period and detail images, two more pages of color cockpit shots, and a page of gorgeous color instrument panel art.

Three final pages of color plates – profile, plan, and inset views – illustrate PZL P.11c serial number 8.70 during the September Campaign.

Again, size is compact and convenient enough to grace the workbench while fact-checking, say, Mirage Hobby’s 1:48-scale kit. And it’s inexpensive enough that spilled or smudged paint won’t prompt buyer’s regret.

But as with MMP’s first “Single” on Bell’s P-39Q, extra color profiles sampling more P.11c schemes would doubtlessly increase consumer appeal!

With thanks to MMP for the review copy.
