Mushroom Model Publications has released the latest installment of their Yellow Series titled Messerschmitt Bf 109F. Like all the other books in the series, it is printed in glossy paper and lavishly illustrated with period b&w photographs, color profiles, and color pictures of restored aircraft. Also of note is also the fact they have included 3D computer-generated images of different parts of the airplane (nose, control stick, etc.).

In addition to the above, there are 1/48 scale plans of all the main Bf-109F variants, plus a 620mm fold-out (2-feet) color profile of a Bf-109. I wish I could frame it!

The main sections of the book include: early stages, armament, prototype (Bf-109F-0), main variants (F-1 to F-4), production series, modifications (/Trop, reconnaissance, etc.), final variants (the rare F-5 to F-8 marks), research programs, etc.

The book has 30 full-color profile (some of them are 4-view), plus a full-color walk-around series broken down by fuselage, engine, wing, canopy, cockpit, tail, undercarriage, and armament. The walk-around also include drawings from the airplane technical manuals.

I wholeheartedly recommend this book to modelers and aviation aficionados.

I would like to thank Mushroom Model Publications and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
