Luftwaffe Gallery

A new photo series from 'team' Mombeeck

Erik has decided to open up his huge photo archive to the rest of us in the form of a monograph series. Each issue will be a large format A-4 landscape booklet of some 50-60 pages of photos supported by (English)text and profile artworks by Thierry Dekker. Issue 1 due end April.

Re: Luftwaffe Gallery

Hello Neil and ...,

thank you for having started this thread.

I just finished looking at the proofs from the printer. Apparently, this booklet will be very beautiful, especially with the amazing colour photographs never published before and the superb colour artwork by Thierry Dekker , acclaimed as one of the best profiles designers.
We also included some unusual items like a "Gallery" on Luftwaffe tunic lapel badges. All the lapel badges presented in this LuGa 1 are original and come from veterans, like the superb 2./JG 2 laughing sun.
Our hope is to interest modelers too. And, by the way, any help from members of this forum would be welcome: does anyone know shops for modelers to whom I should transmit informations about the new series "LuGa"? Thanks, your support is more than important for our projects.

Erik

Re: Luftwaffe Gallery

Eric, Congratulations...!!!
...and question. Is there any chance to find out what "topics" are included. On your web pages in the samples one may read "topics" as White noses on Bf 110s, cross hatch paint schemes etc. Any info which can be shared with us about these?
Thanks and fingers crossed for the new series...

Re: Luftwaffe Gallery

I've just received my copy of Vol 1 and I am very pleased with it. Great photos and colour schemes throughout - it is refreshing to see a book that uses images that haven't appeared numerous times in various publications. A definite recommend.
Can anyone tell me how often the volumes will be published & how many there will be?

Re: Luftwaffe Gallery

I've had Vol 2 of Luftwaffe Gallery for around a week now and it is every bit as good as the first edition. The sections on 'squiggle' camouflage and ship killers has some especially good artwork and photos - and in keeping with articles on the more obscure areas, there is a good section on walking sticks! Well worth the money.
