There are a few P-51B's, C's, most are D models in various paint/camouflage schemes. There's even a P-48 (the Enforcer) which I'd never seen before. The captions are about the individual planes & owners, not a history of the Mustang, not a good book for a modeler, unless you just wanted exterior shots - no cockpits or wheel wells here.
Not a `must have' but a nice to have, I enjoy seeing such sharp images of this classic plane. I was able to pick this up for a few dollars, not bad for the price.
The only things missing for me, comparing this book to 'Spitfire, Flying Legend' or 'Hurricane, a Fighter Legend' from the same publisher, were some more background information and WW2 colour photographs of the Mustang and photographs of Mustangs operating in the Korean War.
