I discovered an old book I have on German World War II uniforms and I took some time to scan the Luftwaffe pages. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Great art reference!

I agree, Luftwaffe kits are the coolest.

Hey Christian,

Any chance of you posting some of the other pics? I would see this as a great modeling / figure painting resource. Those are great scans.

What exactly is the name of the book?

The thing that always amazes me when I see WWII uniforms in museums is how small they look. The leather jackets on display at the Pima Air Museum look like they were made for 14 year olds and even Goering's uniform on display at the Imperial War Museum doesn't look that big.

No fast food back then...

Sure! Just give me some time because I'm so overworked these days. Check the link elephant_il2 posted: that's the book. My title is in German so it would be pretty useless to mention it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
