Congrats Peter. I liked Arado 234 V-16 very much. And the top view of Me-262 HG Delta reminds me A-4 Skyhawk.

Many thanks for your kind words.
The biggest thanks should go to Mal (Holdfast) for asking the original simple little question "How do you choose colours for a Luft 46 subject?".
Without that doing profiles would probably still be a "One day I would love to do a......" kind of thing.

And SnakeEye....ever thought of changing your name to Hawkeye? When I did the model thing I serched many donor aircraft for a wing that would do the job and the Skyhawk fitted the bill better than anything else I could find. Well spotted.

Just out of market research....does anyone have any favourites?


Thanks again cheers
Peter

Peter,
This would be a stupid question but are all the planes you choose to illustrate fantastic? Meaning not existing even on papers? Because I think that some of them were real projects.

Definately the blueish pattern (rlm75-76 series) on Junkers EF211. I adored it. I love the colors and simple patterns such as that. Oh and the reverse squigle looks cool.

Hi

SnakeEye
Its a very varied result. Some designs were no more than a "scribble on a fag packet" type of thing, some had detail plans drawn up, others actually made it to scale wind tunnel models and mock-ups, but some indeed were built as prototypes or at least were in the process of being built when the war ended.

Yaly´m
You hit a little nugget with your reverse camo idea.

Cheers and thanks
Peter

Peter superb as usual and the extra effort certainly makes a big difference. I promise I'll finish my Ta 183 soon.....................After the Focker D.VII now though
