With top tips and hints from award-winning modellers, this volume includes guides to variant conversion and markings, as well as the best methods of weathering to ensure authenticity. Other topics covered include a description of appropriate tools and equipment required, tint boxes on key aces and pilots, kit availability and a useful summary of after-market products and associated products such as resin and etched brass conversion kits, decal sheets, paints etc.

Along with a short history of each campaign to provide context, the author also includes a list of key reference sources and relevant websites for further information. Perfect for all those interested to learn more about the aircraft of the Luftwaffe during this period, this book will also be an invaluable tool for those modelling these amazing aircraft.
