Riassunto: Much has been written about the Luftwaffe, but no aspect has been more controversial than the question of camouflage and markings of the aircraft.
In this comprehensive study, author Michael Ullmann follows the development and use of many colors and establishes the links between the then-standard RAL colors and those adopted by the German Air Ministry.
Using much original documentation, he reveals how and why these finishes were developed and applied to both military and Lufthansa aircraft in such detail that anyone with an interest in the subject, whether a historian, scale modeler, or aircraft preservationist can recreate Luftwaffe colors with unprecedented accuracy.
Supplemented by more than 300 photographs, more than 40 drawings, 16 pages of detailed color aircraft profiles, and a highly accurate chart of real paint chips, Luftwaffe Colours 1935-1945 presents a remarkable insight into the art of World War II German camouflage markings.
L'autore: Michael Ullmann once served as a radio technician in the Bundeswehr. This then led to a career with one of the major German aviation companies developing unmanned reconnaissance drones. The precision demanded in his professional career, combined with his passion for accuracy as an aeromodeller, spurred the research involved in finding correct finishes for his models. In turn this led to his discovery of much original documentation concerning Luftwaffe paints and camouflage in WWII, most previously unused by historians.
