Thanks- they are really impressive!

I was expecting the dyed style black and whire images that date from the period, but these are altogether more sophisticated.

There is also a section that discusses the technique used to add the colour.

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Günther Rall

Very, VERY nice! Thank you very much for posting this, off-topic or no. I am currently a Russian Studies type in college (and old study, but I'm trying!)

Thanks again. I forwarded the site to my professor.

Brilliant site, thank you very much for sharing!

I have brought it to the attention of a friend who works in publishing and often deals with searches for historical photos to use in books.

Wow and to think that most of these people are either gone or very very very old http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif the pictures look like they could have been taken yesterday. Facinating such a shame that this technology wasn't so wide spread
