This new publication from MPM Publications is the latest in their Yellow book series. It describes the design and development of the P51D/K and CAC Mustang in detail.

The booklet contains 152 pages explaining the difference between the production blocks and this is backed up with very concise and detailed 1/72, 1.48 and 1/32 scale drawings.  The quality of paper, photographs and printing is excellent. 

A brief history of the development of the Mustang is included in the first few pages as well as some very comprehensive walk around photographs detailing all aspects of the airframe, combining wartime photographs and excerpts from various maintenance manuals with colour photographs of many preserved aircraft including Happy Jacks Go Buggy (P-51D-30NA 44-74452, N74190).  These will be of great benefit to the super detailers as there are some very close photographs of the undercarriage, undercarriage bays, engine and cockpit. 

33 colour side profiles displaying different schemes worn by various squadrons. 

Mushroom’s new title is a very concise and complete reference for modelers wanting to build a P-51D Mustang.
