Following closely the design and philosophy of the earlier Spitfire, Sea Fury, Mustang and Tomcat titles, ‘How to Build… The Messerschmitt Me Bf109 Emil’ offers the modeller everything that they need to build a collection of models of this iconic aircraft in1:72, 1:48 and 1:32. In so doing, the reader will be taken through builds of the following subjects:

  • Airfix 1:72 Bf109E-3
  • Airfix 1:48 Bf109E-3/4
  • Eduard 1:48 Bf109E-1
  • Dragon 1:32 Bf109E-4
  • Matchbox 1:32 Bf109E-3

Each chapter deals with the construction and painting of the models, offering ideas, hints and tips and where needed, additional details on getting the best from each individual project. High quality paper, printing and layout, ensure that no detail is missed across the extended 60 pages of this new publication.


With the first 100 confirmed orders, readers will receive a frameable A4 print, offered on high-quality card stock that you can keep and hopefully hang in your office or workroom! So if you want one – be quick: once they are gone, they are gone…

As with previous titles, this one is being created as a strictly limited-run product and as before, the price reflects this. Many of you will already have the other books in your collections so — hopefully — will know what this means in terms of quality and how enjoyable it is to own something that’s rather niche in its approach!

As with previous titles, here are links to my PayPal account where you will be able to pay for your chosen copy. Please, as mentioned below, leave your address details! Though may have supplied your full address to them, it doesn’t show against your payment unless you enter it manually, so please check that you have!

Here are the links for the softback book that I will be releasing:

UK Orders including postage and packing: £22 – PayPal.Me/DavidP671/22
Europe Orders including postage and packing: £25 – PayPal.Me/DavidP671/25
Rest Of World including postage and packing: £27.50 – PayPal.Me/DavidP671/27.50


When using the Paypal links, please can you ensure that you do the following:

Leave your email address so that I can contact you if necessary – and your full name – not just your screen name!

Leave a full name and mailing address and if you have reserved a copy under a screen name such as seen on here, that as well please. Sometimes its easy to click the link, but not add additional details, so please, if you can, fill in you COMPLETE address so that I can simply cut and paste it for use on the mailing labels and envelopes. If I can’t find your address or full name, I can’t send out the book, so the more information I have, the easier and more efficient it will be!

If you need to contact me about anything to do with the book, place an order, or have any other questions, please either leave a message here, or contain me using my email address:


So for now, that’s just about it with the book, all that needs to be done now to finalise design and get everything off to the printers ready for release at the show and then to be posted out over the following two weeks. Thank you all so much for you support with this project and for taking the time to read this update. I hope that you enjoy the book when it arrives and hope that you all have a wonderful day. Thanks so much!
