This fourth release in MMP's Single series concentrates on the P-51D-10 Mustang. This was the aircraft that most of us have seen in museums or air shows. Unlike the -5, it added the fillet in front of the fin that increased the aircraft's stability. It was this version that the USAAF used to escort bombers in the last 9 months or so of the war.

In line with the other releases, this one is in the large A4 size with several distinct sections. There is no history of the type, but there are superbly done plans in both 1/48 and 1/72 scale. This includes fuselage cross sections that are often missing from other plans. The book includes a goodly number of period photos showing both the entire aircraft and someof the plane undergoing maintenance. A real plus to this are a number of illustrations from the airframe manuals. There are also color photos of the restored aircraft's cockpit so you can get an idea of the color as well as detail photos from the same source. The book finishes up with large, full page color four views of an in-service example.

It is another great addition to the MMP family of books that offers all that both the modeler and the enthusiast are seeking in a plans/detail book on a specific aircraft without going into a ton of detail. It is a book that I found to be well done and one that I can highly recommend to you.
