Stormbird Colors

Construction, Camouflage and Markings of the Me 262. Green & Evens. The history, camouflage and markings of the Me 262 is described with the assistance of 40 WWII period photos, scale drawings, and excerpts from an original Me 262 engineering handbook. The Jumo 004 turbojet engine is also placed in its historical context as both a crucial asset and disappointing liability for the Stormbird. A full color photo essay of "Black X", werknummer 500200 is outlined together with a history of its pilot and its service with II./KG 51. "Black X" is the last remaining complete Me 262 bomber, now housed in Australia. This fascinating Stormbird was repainted in the 1950s but its original wartime paintwork was partially exposed by research in the early 1980s. Important elements of "Black X", including the cannon bay and fuselage interior are in extraordinarily good condition. Includes many color photographs to highlight construction and camouflage aspects of this significant aircraft. The late-war camouflage on "Black X" is comprehensively discussed and cross-referenced against reliable sources of RLM colors and Federal Standard samples. All new color profiles plus a summary of the special markings applied to the Stormbird are included along with tactical and unit markings presented in full color. 90 pgs. including 16 color pages, 8"x 11", sfbd.

Luftwaffe at War Series Vol. 6

Spick. This photo-essay, one of a 21-volume series, covers every aspect of the Luftwaffe in World War II, examining the men and the aircraft they flew as it charts the rise and fall of this mighty force. This softbound, 72 pg. volume contains 105 B&W photos along with 8 pages of color and measures 7"x 10".

In 1943, with increasingly effective USAAF and RAF bombing raids against Germany taking their toll on the German war effort, the Luftwaffe was forced to direct its scarce resources at the Western Front and to keep its attention there for the next two years.

With over 100 rare photographs, this book shows the fighters that were pulled out of Norway, the Balkans, Russia and Italy, the fighter-bombers and bombers sent to attack British targets, the planes that launched the V-1 bombs, and the first jet and rocket-powered aircraft introduced at the end of the war. From the conventional Bf 109 and Fw 190 to the unusual and unique aircraft introduced into service in the dying days of the war, such as the Ar 234 jet, the Ju 287 bomber and the Me 262 and He 162, the full range of Luftwaffe types is illustrated and analysed in vivid and absorbing detail.   #0040112      1

Luftwaffe at War Series Vol. 10

1944-1945. Griehl. This photo-essay, one of a 21-volume series, covers every aspect of the Luftwaffe in World War II, examining the men and the aircraft they flew as it charts the rise and fall of this mighty force. This softbound, 72 pg. volume contains 102 B&W photos along with 8 pages of color and measures 7"x 10".

As the course of the war turned against the Third Reich, the sudden appearance of jet-propelled aircraft marked the advent of Germany's last hope in the bitter struggle for the control of the skies. Yet, despite some early success, and initial Allied shock, most German jets were destined for a short but violent life in the face of Allied air superiority, or remained prototypes and the Fhrer's pipe dream.

This volume portrays the rise of the jet fighters and fighter-bombers and vividly captures the wartime career of Germany's wonder weapons. With more than one hundred rare images, this comprehensive study examines the jets' appearance and markings and the pilots who flew and tested the aircraft. Such celebrated aircraft as the Me 262 and Ar 234 sit side by side with lesser known types including the He 162, Ho 229 V5 and H IX and serve as testament to Germany's technological ingenuity in the face of bombing, shortages and defeat.    #0019111      1

Griehl. This photo-essay, one of a 21-volume series, covers every aspect of the Luftwaffe in World War II, examining the men and the aircraft they flew as it charts the rise and fall of this mighty force. This softbound, 72 pg. volume contains 106 B&W photos along with 8 pages of color and measures 7"x 10".

As the Allies intensified their bombing of the Third Reich, the Luftwaffe's conventional fighters seemed taxed to their very limit, making the sudden appearance of rocket aircraft, when Major Spate attacked a P-47 over northern Germany in May 1944, the advent of Germany's last hope.

This volume presents extremely rare photos of Germany's rocket planes and vividly captures the wartime career of the Third Reich's secret weapons. Using images taken during the war of aircraft under development and in the field, this comprehensive study examines the rocket planes' appearance and markings and the pilots who flew and tested the aircraft. The book covers the Me 163B ('Komet'), Me 163BV1, Me 163AV4, and also examines a number of key experimental planes the Me 262 C and the 'Natter', for example.
