Plans have become a staple amongst modelers and enthusiasts over the last decade or so. Kagero has been one company that has embraced this trend with a now rather extensive catalog of books that focus on this aspect of the hobby.

This particular book is part of their Top Drawings series that has become very popular with modelers. The subject this time around is the Bristol Blenheim. This aircraft was one of the main light bombers with which the RAF entered WWII. The aircraft was also developed into other versions such as a heavy day fighter and a night fighter. The same flight components were used in developing the Beaufort and the Beaufighter. Though it soon became obvious that it was unable to do well in northwest Europe, it proved to be very useful in less intense theaters such as the Mediterranean and North Africa. The type was also used to great effect by Finland and some other nations.

Typical of the series, when it comes to aircraft you get drawings in all the major scales. The 1/72 drawings cover all the variants and are within the pages of the book. Due to the size, the 1/48  plans are on two very large fold-out sheets. You are also provided with several profiles and a four view in full color.

A very nice addition to a popular series.
