Re: NEW BOOK - Fw 190 D Camouflage & Markings - Pt. 1

Thanks Bernard for your comments

You are forgiven for your english !

I am very pleased that we provide you a better study than you ever hope .

Three major goals drove our layout .

1 to do something easy to understand and to read

2 provide information we have as much precise as possible to explain our thoughts

3 provide as many iconographical support on the same subject as we could have (sometimes we do not have the right to reproduce such our such picture) , for better understanding : a drawing when correct provides much more data than a long text . Several pictures of the same machine , will reinforce our conclusions and help modelers for painting a particuliar Fw 190D .

Thanks one more time

Eric

Being a work in two volumes I guess they opted for a index for the complete set on second volume(?)

Re: NEW BOOK - Fw 190 D Camouflage & Markings - Pt. 1

Last friday I bought* the long waited Fw 190 D camouflage & markings: at first glance I can say only that is the dream-book for every Fw190 long nose fan.

Eric Larger and his friends have written a master piece.

A lot of new informations, photos (wonderful the colour pics of wn 211934) and like a gem the discovery that the two colour pics about JV 44 Doras are two different aircrafts and not the same. (all the day I have studied the pics published in Luftwaffe im Focus n.7 and I agree with you).

Thanks Eric

Francesco M. Lentini

*PS: 2 books, one for daily use, the other for my library.

Thumbs up Re: NEW BOOK - Fw 190 D Camouflage & Markings - Pt. 1

I agree completely with Mr. Lentini, this book is exceptional. Have high expectations for Vol. II; what is the planned release date?

Bravo to Larger/Japo!

Best Regards and Congratulations,
D.B. Andrus

Re: NEW BOOK - Fw 190 D Camouflage & Markings - Pt. 1

Many thanks

Don't forget Marc Deboeck , without him this project would never exist . This is our friendship and madness that enable us to realise it !

Next part , next year , You should be aware that to achieve such a quality it is a long time process and that we do it on our free-time , our second job every day . We do take a little pause (to few weeks for our wives !) after completion of volume I after several years of efforts.

Never mind volume II is well advanced but there is still a lot to do to complete it . And we don't want to sacrifice quality to speed .

I think that all of you could understand why to be patient some months more , be aware also that we are very pleased and conforted in our choices , by all the messages we received since the publication .

Many thanks to all of you .

Re: NEW BOOK - Fw 190 D Camouflage & Markings - Pt. 1

Well, mine arrived yesterday, and all I can say would echo all the great things already stated here. It is indeed a fine, well-researched work. Even better, it is so well presented that I have never seen a finer, more visually appealing book.

My one complaint (and it's not REALLY a complaint) is that all of the info on Lt Dortenmann's WNr 210003 will be reserved for Volume II! Hans Dortenmann is my favorite Luftwaffe personality, due to his courage and unstinting concern for the men who flew under him. I am really looking forward to Vol II.

I haven't even really gotten my "teeth" into it yet, but I am very happy to have it.

Many thanks to Marc, Eric and Tomas. Well done!

Manyt thanks one more time for your message

That was a very long project for us , and your comments confort us in the way we dediced to do it .

Dortenmann aircraft was not int the book as we had no possibility at the time the book was printed , to have a copy of them .

Our rules were , except very few aircrafts interesting , not to do a detail study of an aircraft if we were not able to produce the photographic evidences to illustrate our hypothesis .

But it is not a definitive position .....

There is another issue to come !
