This book covers the Polish PZL P.11c and is laid out in seven chapters. The book has text laid out in two columns per page, one on English and one in Polish.

The first chapter covers the development and history of the first Allied aircraft to down a German plane in WWII. Included in this section are several color profiles as well as information about the various fighter squadrons and each of the aircraft depicted in the profiles. Chapter two is forty-seven pages of color walkaround and detail photos of the one surviving PZL P. 11c at the Polish Aviation Museum in Krakow. These photos omit no angle or detail and are worth the price of the book alone. The next five chapters are build reviews of most of the kits of the PZL P.11c available. A chapter each is devoted to the 1/72 Arma kit, 1/72 IBG Models kit, 1/48 Mirage Hobby, 1/48 Arma Hobby, 1/48 Arma Hobby Expert set and 1/32 IBG Models kits. These five chapters take up over half the book. Full assembly, painting and decaling are covered on each in both photos and writing with all shortfalls and improvements needed pointed out. In addition to the 1/72 and 1/48 plans bound into the book, you are also provided with a sheet each of 1/32 and 1/24 scale plans.

This is a book with informative text. The color photos making up chapter two are to me the most outstanding feature of the book and the step-by-step builds are the next. If you have any of these kits in your stash or have an interest in the PZL P.11C, I can recommend this book to you. As well as to anyone with an interest in WWII, WWII aviation, Polish aircraft of WWI. All will find something of interest in these pages. My thanks to Casemate for the review sample and to IPMS for the opportunity!
