FirstRead

 

MK Editions is a French publisher and model manufacturer that has released a series of books combining reference material and modelling projects. All their book subjects to date have been German, and include the Sturmgeschutz III, Sd.Kfz. 250 and RSO.

The fourth book in the Militar's Kits Hors series is "German and Allied Wheeled Vehicles Part One". This title is a little misleading, as Part One is exclusively devoted to German vehicles.

The book has 122 glossy pages between its soft covers. 8 pages are in full colour. The text is entirely in French, but the package does include a separate 33 page booklet with a full English translation covering vehicle background, photo captions, assessment of modelling subjects and construction articles.

Each page includes between one and four (and sometimes more) photos of wartime vehicles in service, details of museum specimens or models. 

Subjects covered in this volume are:

  • The Mannschaftwagen family

  • Mercedes-Benz typ 170 VK

  • Traction Avant 11 BL

  • Steyr 1500 A/01

  • Tatra 57K

  • Auto-Union Horsch typ 1a Kfz.69

The MK Editions combination of wartime photos, walkaround pictures and modelling articles is a very useful formula for modellers.

This latest book will be hepful to modellers planning to build any of these German vehicles.

Recommended.

Thanks to Squadron for the review sample.
