Fürstenfeldbrucker Modellbautage

A scale modeling fair in Munich area. Excellent models, dedicated people, beautiful location – the former granary of a baroque monastery.
Note: the Focke Wulf in winter camouflage is a test shot of Revell’s new 1:32 kit.

  9. Grüß Gott aus Kanada. My first job building models professionally was in an architecture office in Germany…20 years ago! I was amazed then as I am now how much kit building as a kid has helped me as an adult.

  11. What does furstenfeldbruck (sorry about the umlauts) mean?
    I see field and bridge, but what does the whole say?
    Seems to me there was a USAF base thereabouts at some point?

    • Bernard,
      it basically says Bridge At The Prince’s Field but at the end of the day it’s just a name. In fact there is an air field in Fürstenfeldbruck and e.g. Jagdgeschwader 53 which you know from the ace of spades on German aircraft was stationed there for a while. Later in fact USAF flew missions from Fürstenfeldbruck.

  12. Thanks, Halvar! I suppose the Prince is long gone? Sic transit gloria mundi.
