This book contains all a modeler would need to build and super detail a model of the Storch in any scale. The book also includes scale plans in 1/72, 1/48 and 1/35. These plans were first rate.

The first 62 pages cover the basics of each and every variant of the Storch. The next 30 pages cover each of the many non-German operators of the type, also including those captured examples that were operated by both the United Kingdom and the USA. Even Gen. Eisenhower had one for his personal use. The many color profiles of these non-German Storchs help provide many alternate paint schemes to the modeler. The next 10 or so pages cover the technical description and the camouflage and markings.

The final section includes many color photos of both aircraft preserved in museums and flying examples. The photos cover every angle and look into every nook and cranny on the aircraft and provided information on even the smallest details.

This is another fine book from this publisher. I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in this particular aircraft as well as to anyone even thinking about building a model of the Storch. It will be a big help to you and you can't really go wrong with this one. Money well spent.

The book is available from Mushroom Model publications and Casemate Publishing through their websites above. My thanks to Mushroom Model Publications and Casemate Publishing for the review copy and to IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review this book.
