This is quite expensive for what it is. I think potential purchasers will be far better off waiting for Martin Pegg's revision of his Hs 129 book which will also appear next year.

I purchased the Pegg book from J.J. Fedorowicz some time ago. Cost me $350 though.
It is a great book but pricy now. Enthusiasts will be well served by the new revised edition if it surfaces?....

It will surface next year. It is very nearly there. Martin has completed the text, captioned the photographs and is currently overseeing the colour illustrations to ensure they exactly match the photographic evidence.

I absolutely agree. Martin will be including a great deal of new material that will make the book seem more like a whole new work on the subject and less like a revision. Good fortune awaits he who is patient.

Re: Henschel HS 129 (Spotlight on)

..isn’t Wolowski (illustrator Spotlight) deceased ? Probably no reason not to buy his book but I thought he passed away a while ago after doing the ‘Late versions Bf 109’ book. Unless the jacket illustration on amazon is a ‘mock-up’..
