FirstRead



Familiar to most modellers of Luftwaffe aircraft, this volume follows the rest of the series with a mix of personal photos, log book entries, maps and stories and the occasional colour profile by Australia’s own Juanita Franzi. Fifty-four pages of quality semi-flat paper are staple-bound in a glossy card cover. All information is in German and English and appears to be well-translated, Americanised spelling is used. As with previous editions , questions are raised by photos and information and the editor appeals for clarification form the broader community. In this one there is a page of additions and corrections from previous editions - what a great way of making sure true facts are found and recorded.
