Krzysztof Janowicz Kagero 3 "He 111" vol 1
Kagero's "Heinkel He 111 vol. I" (number 3) written by Krzysztof Janowicz
and illustrated (beautifully) by Arkadiusz Wrobel. Published in Poland in
2003 ISBN 83-89088-26-6. Written in Polish and English. Includes a decal set
in both 1/48th and 1/72nd scale for several of the aircraft depicted in the
colour artworks. About 106 pages of (what can only be described as)
'sumptuous' content. This book is remarkable as are all of Kagero's output.
This puts the old Squadron/Signal 'In Action' series in the shade. Don
looks positively anaemic in comparison to Wrobel's work. Purchased from EBay
in early 2007. This book is packed full of excellent black and white
photo's, development history, colour artwork and page after page of scale
plans and drawings. There is almost too much to take in. Information
overload! And this is only volume 1!? This volume covers all versions from "B"
through to "H" with the drawings showing what has changed between each type
and sub-type. The "Z" Zwilling is also covered. There are many highly
detailed photo's of specific features giving this an almost 'walkaround'
feel. The photo's are of the highest quality - crisp & clear. There are many
good shots of He 111's rolling through the production line. Several show the
bomb "cells" in quite a detailed fashion. Highly recommended.
Krzysztof Janowicz Kagero 8 "He 111" vol II
Published in 2004. Dual language Polish and English. Another great monograph
from Kagero. A very large publication at 81 pages and that is not including
nearly another 20 or 30 pages just of scale plans. It is peppered with
colour artwork and a couple of pages of colour photographs. As usual it
includes a set of decals in 1/48th and 1/72nd scale. There is even decals
for a P-2 marque for which you will need the Koster Aero Enterprises He-111
set for the new
engines in 1/48th scale. There are full three view colour artworks to go
with the decals so you know exactly how to paint the model. The scale plans
are very comprehensive showing every marque imaginable plus variants and
field modifications. Even weapons are covered. If you only have one
reference then this should be it. Remarkable.
