Henschel's sturdy army co-op plane, the Hs 126, has generally taken a second seat in the modeling world, behind it's more popular counterpart, the Fieseler Storch. Mushroom Model Publication has stepped up to shed some light on the Henschel with their recent, photo-packed monograph.
Coming in at over 200 pages, this "Orange Series" title follows the publisher's well-known format with a concise history and overall description, technical notes and photos, followed by a massive assortment of mostly unpublished Hs 126 photos showing it at work in all theaters it served. Non-Luftwaffe users are also covered, including some intriguing photos of Greek Henschels with their distinct green and sand camo. small assortment of surviving relics is also included; no complete Hs 126s survived the war. A final section of 50 high quality side profiles should provide ample inspiration to the modeler.
In sum, another fine ttle from the Mushroom Model team. This will be a valuable reference for anyone working the venerable Airfix kit, or a announced, upcoming ICM kit in quarter scale.
