German WW2 Designs by Claes Sundin
The Messerschmitt Bf 109 and Focke-Wulf Fw 190 were at the forefront of the action as the Luftwaffe battled the combined might of the Allied air forces across Western Europe and beyond during the Second World War.
Flying in every front, from desert sands to frozen tundra, they featured a hugely diverse range of markings and colour schemes which have fascinated aviation enthusiasts ever since.
Luftwaffe Fighters offers more than 200 highly detailed full colour profiles from world renowned artist Claes Sundin, covering not just the two most famous types but also front line single-seaters such as the Me 262, Me 163, Ta 152 and He 162 plus the two-seater Bf 110 and night fighter versions of the Ju 88, Do 17, Do 215, Do 217 and the dedicated night fighter He 219.
The markings of aircraft piloted by aces such as Erich Hartmann, Gerd Barkhorn and Otto Kittel are meticulously reproduced, based on original photographs, alongside a wide range of schemes from every year of the war and every front where the Luftwaffe saw action.
Offering a host of different colour schemes and detailed notes, this is indispensable reading for enthusiasts and modellers alike.
