JG 301 Wilde Sau’ Marek J. Murawski and Peter Neuwerth St. G.2 ‘Immelmann’ Marek J Mirawski No. 112 Squadron ‘Shark Squadron’ 1942-1945 Andre R. Zbiegniewski Kagero £ 11.95 each The Polish firm of Kagero seems to be increasing the output of it’s unit histories; these three were passed over to SAM on the same day, by importers Polmodel. Two of them have decals covering the subjects treated in the books, and colour profiles, while the ‘extra’ in the St. G.2 book is a bookmark containing colour chips, in this case RLM shades 66 and 67.
The text and captions are in Polish and English, and many photographs, as well as accounts, of the actions have been brought together in all three books. The first has ju 87s in variants from A to G, examples of which are included in the seven colour profiles. JG 301 was formed in August 1943 with Focke-Wulf Fw 190As, and was still flying these at the end of the war, by which time they had been joined by Та 152s. Examples of both been included, both in the colour profiles and on the decal sheet, which covers the profiled aircraft in both 1:48 and 1:72 scales. The volume on No. 112 Squadron is the second, the first being recently reviewed in SAM: this covers Kittyhawk Mks la, III and IV, and Mustang Mks III and IV. A dozen of these are covered by the decal sheet, which gives codes and serials (one of the for ET1017, a Kittyhawk Mk la which is reputed to be carrying an American serial and which was presumably corrupted). Well known names such as Clive Caldwell and Neville Duke feature in both text and photographs, and it is well worth working through the somewhat idiosyncratic English to read the accounts of the actions in which the units were involved. If you can’t get these from your usual source, I’m sure that Polmodel would be happy to supply you direct; to check availability and p&p contact John at Polmodel on 020 8992 3822, by e-mail at [email protected] com or at 64 Cumberland Road, Acton, London W3 6EY.
