Building, painting and finishing scale aircraft models.
Here is Oblt. Georg Schott's "Weise 11", Staffelkapitaen of 1./JG-1 while based at Deelen, Holland in the autumn of 1943. This one also has the Eagle Editions propeller & spinner, cowl gun cover, and wheels. I also used the [...]
Sturmjager flown by Hpt. Wilhelm Moritz, Kommandeur of IV(Sturm)./JG-3 while the unit was based at Memmingen in the summer of '44 and dedicated to the interception of allied daytime bombing raids. An order from Hermann Goering himself [...]
