Hello and welcome to my blog!

Three months since my last post ..so what's been going on ?
To paraphrase "Scale model soup " - blimey, I can’t believe it’s been more than three months since my last post! Time sure flies, especially as you get older. Suffice to say, I’m still here. So what’s been going on? On the basis that you might be vaguely interested....here goes..
Since my last post here..I've written two books ! And a publisher is interested! Here's a mock up of the cover of the first one - doesn't take a great deal of effort to work out what the second title might be either. Of course these titles weren't compiled overnight - they are the synthesis of about ten years work on various projects..
Ok so you're thinking same old, same old..but both titles are jam-packed with great photos from a number of Luftwaffe alumini and artworks by Vincent Dhorne. And no-where do I say that Hartmann was credited with 352 kills or that Walther Dahl managed 128 victories including 36 heavy bombers...
In the same series I collaborated with Jean-Louis Roba on this next title earlier in the year and it is now available from the usual sources!
Features first person accounts, artworks, 200 photos, nice thick glossy paper and glossy card cover.
Elsewhere Eduard's new Bf 109 G-6/AS is released - one of the five markings options is for F-K Müller's 'red 2', the 1./NJGr 10 Moskito hunter flown by the ace during July-August 1944. I'd already written about this machine on my Luftwaffe blog and was invited to submit a lengthier appraisal for the latest Eduard INFO.
My 'history' feature on Müller's aircraft and night fighter career complete with rare photos and first person accounts is available to read in the free 76-page November issue of Eduard Info - download it here
...now to get some modelling done..

Where I can purchase both of your books. Excellent article on the Wilde Sau Ace. My kit of this aircraft has just been shipped to me.ReplyDelete
Thanks - first one due in March next year... Casemate are US-based so I expect it’ll be available at the usual outlets..
