Does anyone know if there are any biographies on Josef Priller ? If not whats the best squadron history for both JG51 and JG26 in the Battle of Britain. Also looking for info regarding JG26's defense of the west time frame. Im looking to build all of Priller's aircraft ? Im thinking any books on JG26 would cover Priller ? Im also set for his Bf-109E1/3/7 markings and photos. Now with his Bf-109F white 1, Ive not seen much on it. However i have a few b&w photo's of it. Just not sure if it was an F2 or F4 I've seen both credited to him ? Any thoughts on this ? Any Information on his Fw-190D9 Black 14 ? So far all i have seen is a profile of this ? The rest of his FW190's the A-2/3/5/8 I have plenty of actual photo's but the D9 is lacking in photo evidence. Im also quite skeptical that at that late stage of the war he would have changed from Black 13 to 14 ? Again any info or thoughts are welcome. Dennis
This is a placeholder for a project I'm hoping to get round to soon. Back in 1971 the 9-year-old me was captivated by the appearance in Woolworths of an exciting new box: The image of the 2 aircraft roaring across their grass airfield in Northern France was exactly what we had seen just a few months before with the release of the Battle of Britain film, and of course in those days we all knew that BoB-era 109s were 2-tone green and light blue with the high demarcation and no mottle spoiling the purity. Revell thought so too: https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/6/6/2/258662-13150-54-pristine.jpg That Airfix box art has long been one of my favourites but apparently the company didn't think so, as within a remarkably short space of time they had replaced it with this: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/59/85/e0/5985e06701418d6f5676496e32768570.jpg I'm sure they had their reasons but it seemed like a backwards step to me, then and since. I've never built the big Airfix kit but I have done quite a few 109Es in 1/48th, and I have a couple of Eduard overtrees in the stash. Appropriate markings for a pristine JG26 aircraft shouldn't be too hard to find. More shortly. John
Another one for Malta battle, well know ace Münchenberg of JG26 that was engaged in the Malta battle for a short period. Build a lot of these ICM kit that are copies of the Tamiya kit, so no need for drawing cheers Jes

Standard displacement for any new battleship was limited to 35,000 tons with the caliber of main armament not exceeding 406 millimetres. Britain was trying to impose the next treaty decreasing guns caliber even further to 356 mm. Five King George V-class battleships eventually were armed with guns of such caliber. Standard displacement limits compelled placing main guns in three separate turrets with two of them carrying four cannons each. King George V-class entered service in 1940. Out of the five battleships of this class ever built one was sunk (HMS Prince of Wales) while the other four survived the war and were scrapped in the 1950s. This book by Witold Koszela starts with the set of perfectly made detailed line drawings/scale plans of all King George V-class vessels. A4 size, scale drawings, colour profiles, double A2 sheet with colour scheme, double B2 sheet with colour scheme.
