A great resoruces to build the Zoukei-Mura kit
Final verdict: 


The Zoukei-Mura kits have the reputation of outstanding quality: such a good quality comes at the price of the kit and at the price of the attention required during assembling.
This book is addressed to all the modeler wanting to bring out all the best from this wonderful kit.

Published by Valiant Wings, it is written by the very skilled modeler Daniel Zamarbide.
Very reasonable priced, with 68 pages in the 11.6 x 8.1 x 0.2 inches format, the book is illustrated with many photos, to lead you step by step during the building, starting from what you find inside the box, giving great hints about detailing, painting and weathering, useful images and walkaround of the real plane, and many more.
Of special interest is the section about the use of the Bare Metal Foil, that can be used to bring this model to a very astonishing level of quality.

Very recommended
