REVIEWS

The eye catching artwork on the front cover draws you to this fourth title in Kagero's series of 'Units' books... Coupled with this history though are some excellent archive photos, a number of which provide some great ideas for dioramas and for detailing a model or two... Overall this is of course a good book for fans of the Me 109 and FW 190 in particular, and with such good quality artwork and transfers, it should be popular.
