There’s exciting news for all Luftwaffe enthusiasts as Mark Peacock announces Valiant Wings’ next volume in their Airframe & Miniature series. This time the focus is on the Bf 109 variants from the Friedrich onwards and it looks set to be a sure-fire winner – especially with the news of Tamiya’s forthcoming 1:48 Gustav throwing the spotlight firmly back on Messerschmitt’s perennially popular modelling subject.
”Valiant Wings Publishing’s eleventh title in the well-established Airframe & Miniature series will be The Messerschmitt Bf 109 Late Series (F-K including the Z Series) - A Complete Guide To The Luftwaffe’s Famous Fighter by Richard A. Franks.
The Messerschmitt Bf 109 is one of the most popular aircraft modelling subjects around. Our latest book will go some way towards unpicking the bewildering choices of variants and schemes available. This second volume follows our first volume covering the early versions published in 2013.
This eleventh book in our much-acclaimed series will contain at least 224 pages packed with vital information that no active modeller and Bf 109 enthusiast should be without.
It will contain:
40+ pages of technical information
20+ pages of walk-around images and technical diagrams
5+ pages of camouflage and markings
25+ pages of model builds and modelling information
200+ photographs including wartime images
Colour side views and four-views by Richard J. Caruana
3D isometric views of all variants by Wojciech Sankowski
1/48th scale fold-out plans by Jacek Jackiewicz
