Title:  TopDrawings, Henschel Hs 126 A-0, A-1, B-1

Author: Srecko Bradic

Publisher:  Kagero

ISBN:  978-83-65437-60-0

A new TopDrawings title from Kagero for the Henschel Hs 126.  A fairly thin paperback, the book holds 15 pages of excellent scale plans for the different variants.  The first section carries all the 1/72 scale plans, followed by the 4 centre pages devoted to equally good colour profiles, with examples showing the colours and markings on the Hs 126 in Spanish Nationalist markings,  Estonian, Russian (captured example), Greek and of course German.  There are two more profiles on the back cover, one German and the other in Swedish service.  The final section of the book has the plans in repeated but this time in 1/48.  Tucked into the book, rather than the stapled pages, are three folded A3 size sheets (printed on both sides) which carry all the plans again, this time repeated in the larger 1/32 scale.

One other little bonus for modellers that you will find tucked into the pages is a small sheet of foil masks for the cockpit glazing of both 1/72 (Matchbox) and 1/48 (ICM) models.
