Messerschmitt Me 410 A-1/U4

Messerschmitt Me 410 A-1/U4 Book Review

By David L. Veres

Date of Review December 2019 Title Messerschmitt Me 410 A-1/U4
Author Dariusz Karnas, Krzysztof Wolowski Publisher Mushroom Model Publications
Published 2019 ISBN 978-83-65958-65-5
Format 24 pages, softbound MSRP (GBP) £9.00


Sleek and advanced, Messerschmitt’s Me 410 sported heavy offensive armament, remotely controlled defensive weapons, and provision for bombing. Intended as successor to the company’s legendary Bf 110 series, the problem-plagued design ultimately proved unsuccessful in virtually every intended role.

Still, the Me 410 remains a popular modeling subject. And MMP Books’ Messerschmitt Me 410 A-1/U4 – eighth in the publisher’s growing “Single” range – offers hobbyists an affordable handbook on the aircraft.

Spanning just 22 pages, contents include 1:72- and 1:48-scale plans, period and museum shots, detail photos, archival illustrations, color cockpit views, and informative captions.

Size is compact and convenient enough to grace the workbench during your next project session. And it’s economical enough that spilled or smudged paint won’t trigger a tirade of expletives!

Three final pages of color plates – profile and plan views – depict Messerschmitt Me 410 A-1/U4 3U+CC of II/ZG26, summer 1944.

With thanks to MMP for the review copy.
