This is the 33rd book (No. 6133) in MMP's long running "Yellow Series". Uniform with others in the series, the book is a 6-1/2" x 9" (European B5) sized, square bound card cover of 128 pages. Unusually, there are no unbound foldouts but there is a bound foldout, equivalent to 8 additional pages. There is color throughout in addition to a colorized photo on the cover.
The author this time is Robert Michulec who will be familiar to readers of books from AJ Press, but not perhaps to readers of books from MMP. He wrote a 6 volume work on the Bf 109 for AJ Press (in Polish, condensed to 3 volumes in a rather rough English translation). Interestingly, at AJ Press the aircraft was referred to the Me 109 and Michulec defended that usage. Here, it's back to the conventional usage of Bf 109.
The book is divided into three parts. First, there is an excellent design and development history which is excellently supported by black and white photographs. This covers all aspects of the Bf 109F, including the various subtypes and Rustzatz and Rustzustand modifications, tropical and GM 1-boosted versions, research efforts, production details, and more. There are also plenty of line drawings but all in 1/48th scale (the cover blurb about 3 scales shown on the Amazon cover shot does not appear on the actual product). In addition, there are some computer generated CAD drawings of the various cowlings and the tropical modification. There is also a color cockpit drawing on the foldout which appeared in the author's AJ Press books. It is of high quality but lacks the key identifying the various features.
The second part of the book contains the color profiles, some with plan views. This section is about 25 pages long. It is supplemented by a gigantic color profile that stretches across 4 pages on one side of the foldout. All appears to be of excellent quality.
The third part consists of close up photographs of surviving examples. These are supplemented not only by drawings from the contemporary technical literature but by more CAD drawings. There are also some period black and white photographs.
Highly recommended. You can't have too many books about the Bf 109. Indeed, the appetite for books about any German aircraft of this period seems to be insatiable. I hope there are plans for Michulec to produce books about other Bf 109 versions. The E and G models were covered in the earliest books in this series but could use a thorough makeover.
