Hi Oberst,
I tried to log in via Flickr/Yahoo directly and via Google. Two different accounts. I closed my Facebook account some months ago (but that's another topic). Maybe it's some kind of country IP issue like with ebay.com and it's nasty swastikas, but Flickr cannot be dodged so easily (I tried). I have no further idea...

Ebay bans Historic fotos with Swastika's?? Why? That seems pretty stupid to me.

Hi Oberst,
ebay in Germany bans auctions with photos showing swastikas in it. So normally you are not able to access them from a german IP. That's also the reason why swastikas are almost always photoshopped or made unseeable in german WWII photo auctions.
It's a legal issue formulated in § 86 of the german Strafgesetzbuch. In short: The old NSDAP and similar organisations are anticonstitutional, so one is forbidden to "promote" their symbols, ideas etc. Exceptions are made for civic enlightment, arts, sciences etc.
Basically, in the eyes of the german state and many people on ebay, what we do or what interests us is not educational, but blatant national socialist propaganda. Now one can be deeply ashamed and pray for forgiveness in some hidden corner in the forest and never ever look at Luftwaffe airplane photos again OR - you can just set the language settings in Internet Explorer to "English (US)". Problem solved.

Regards,
Christian

Aaah, Thank you Pilot,

I didn't know that as I'm not sure to have (or to have seen) one Erla Bf109G-10 picture taken from the right side. Until that drawing - and my question - It was obvious for me that it was the same BOTH sides since they did care to make a tool to produce that flat left panel... Quite ridiculous!
Same thing on Erla build K-4 ????

Tschüss, Franck.

Franck, there are plenty of photos available showing the starboard side of Erla-G-10s (won't say where to avoid self-promotion...:D).

At any rate the same applied also the few K-4s made by Erla, and this follows pure logic: they had taken so much time and trouble to redesign the frontal part of their G-10s that it would have been sheer nonsense to use a different solution for the K-4... (and nonsense had little room in German brains!)
