“MMP's magnificent monograph perfectly fact-checks Mirage's 1:48 kits, IBG's new 1:72 releases, and even Heller's ancient effort. Superb color plates, digital art, reference shots, service commentary, and 1:72 drawings further season the study… Get this brilliant book. Then use it to model your miniature Karas masterpiece. Rabidly recommended!”

"There is enough information in this book for a skilled modeler to scratch build this unique and little-known aircraft."

- Air Power History

“This book will be of great interest to aircraft modelers and aviation historians alike.”

- AMPS Indianapolis

“If you're building a model of a PZL.23 -- no question, this book is a valuable reference. If, like me, modeling isn't a factor, this book makes for a pretty fascinating read -- that's actually pretty well written -- about an obscure aircraft.”
