    Available in the U.S. from "Casemate", in Australia from "Platypus Publications" and in the UK from "Mushroom Models Publications", this book is one of several excellent books in the "Spotlight On" series. All books in this series feature approximately 50 color profiles of the aircraft in question, showing the markings and camouflage patterns seen on the aircraft and in varied national markings.

    In this particular publication, illustrator Zbigniew Kolacha provides 50 color profiles of 44 F4U Corsairs. The introduction to the book, 2 pages, provides a short "biography" of this classic W.W.II aircraft. The remainder of the pages are given over to those 50 superior illustrations mentioned previously. Each profile is labeled with the BuNo, if known, the airframe numbers, Squadron affiliation, and area of service.

    As a modeler of W.W.II aircraft I find that the illustrations contain excellent reference material. The markings have been researched and one can use the illustration as a placement guide when building a Corsair. Some illustrations show exhaust stains, subtle weathering, fluid leakage, and very subtle "paneling".

    As with other "Spotlight On" publications you can view each page in the book by visiting YouTube. The link is https://youtu.be/uWHxKGateIU

    This book is highly recommended for its quality of illustration, coverage of the subject matter, the inclusion of a short history of the aircraft, and reasonable pricing. Thanks to Mushroom Model Publications for making this excellent book available to IPMS/USA for review.
