Bf-109E is the most recent addition in Kagero’s Monographs Special series. The Casemate information sheet that accompanied the book states that, “This new book gives not only a thorough insight in the development, variants, technical features and camouflage of the “Emil”, but also an excellent overview of the aircraft’s service with the Luftwaffe.” True words!
Modelers vary in their focus for information regarding a subject being modeled, and this publication addresses most, if not all, of those areas of interest.
The text begins with comprehensive coverage of the Bf-109E variants. Detailed black and white images show the characteristics and design differences which separate one “Emil” variant from the next. In these 34 pages, the modeler will find much useful and detailed information that will significantly impact the authenticity of the “E” variant being modeled.
Pages 35-46 cover the design specification of the “E” variants presented on previous pages. The descriptions of these specifications are accompanied by an excellent set of images, taken during the war when the subject matter was “current”.
