This is the 5th of the MMP Single series. This book is for the modeler who is going to build this aircraft. There's no real text, other than the photo captions but there's a bunch of good information to help build and detail a MiG-17F.

The first 5 pages are line drawings in 1/72 and 1/48 scale. Then 4 pages of detail drawings of canopy, landing gear, instrument panel, and aircraft construction detail.

There follows 8 pages of black/white photos of aircraft details and in service. Finally, 3 pages of color photos, and a large 3-view of a Lim-5 in full color which takes up the last 3 pages.

The photos give a very good idea of what the aircraft looked like when in service, and the color photos are wonderful in that they give good color info on the cockpit interior.

Overall Evaluation: Well recommended. If you're going to build one of these, this is a low-cost option to get the detail and info you need to do a well-detailed model.

Thanks to Mushroom Model Publications, Casemate Publishers, IPMS USA, and Phil Peterson for sending me this interesting review item.
