Kagero’s Top Drawing books offer the modeler a good reference for rivet patterns for those so inclined. Also, they are great references for those trying to accurize a kit.

This book contains six view drawings, top and bottom plan views, left and right side profiles, and front and rear views of all four aircraft types, A-D versions in 1/72nd and 1/48th. The 1/32nd scale drawings are actually on a separate foldout and only include the B-1 and D models. There are also some detail drawings of internal items, such as seats and instrument panels included. Cross section drawings are provided for the scratchbuilder as well. There is also a small drawing that shows the external differences.

If it was just drawings and riveting diagrams, then it wouldn’t be from Kagero. Besides these, there are five color profiles of different models. They are first rate drawings.

Again, if that was all that was included, it wouldn’t be Kagero. There are decals for all five aircraft in all three scales, 72, 48, and 32. The decals are printed by Cartograf. They are in perfect register and opaque. They are suitably thin and are typical of the quality of Cartograf. The best decals in the world. There are some unique aircraft included and I’m sure that the markings have not been available before. I particularly like the Bf-109D-1 with the chevron and lightning bolt.

Beautiful drawings, rivet patterns, detail drawings, colorful profiles, and world class decals makes this a hard book to turn down. I like the whole package. Another great book from Kagero.

Highly recommended

Thanks to Kagero and IPMS/USA for the review copy.
