DESCRIPTION:  The Flight Craft series has proved very popular with model 
makers and model engineers through its review of available kits, enhancement 
products and its first rate A4 treatment with many full colour images.  This new 
work follows the proven format and provides good text covering the introduction 
and development of the Bf 109 -  Most Highly Recommended

The Bf 109 was first employed on behalf of Franco's Spanish Nationalists during 
the Spanish Civil War and continued in production and deployment through WWII 
in all the theatres fought by the Germans. By 1939, the Bf 109 was roughly equal to 
the RAF Hurricane but at a disadvantage against the higher performing Spitfire. As 
the war progressed the Bf 109 was developed but the Spitfire was to develop further 
and faster. The Germans introduced the Fw 190 as the real opponent of the later 
Spitfire marks, but that did not lessen the the numbers of Bf 109s, particularly on 
the Eastern Front. In several respects the continued use of the Bf 109 is an 
indictment of the German ability to replace it.

Like the Spitfire, the Bf 109 is an iconic fighter of WWII and it has encouraged 
many plastic and resin kits over the years. Many are no longer available, or are 
difficult to find. This book provides a very good set of reviews of those kits still 
likely to be available and of enhancement products that turn a good kit from a nice 
model into a competition grade replica.
