For Luftwaffe enthusiasts and modellers, the main interest in such aircraft lies in the wide variety of types, and the abundance of camouflage and markings suited to specific theatres, factory and field modifications, and lesser-known emblems.
This book includes, for example, all-white Ju 52 ambulance aircraft, the famous Fieseler Storch observation aircraft in both desert schemes as well as winter schemes with skis etc, together with many lesser known types including helicopters. Serious Luftwaffe enthusiasts will find a wealth of detail about some of the more familiar types and some rarities which will be of particular interest. A selection of types featured include: Bucker Bu 181 Bestmann, Fieseler Fi 156 Storch, Flettner Fl 282 Kolibri helicopter, Focke-Wulf Fw 58 Weihe, Focke-Wulf Fw 200 Condor, Heinkel He 46, Heinkel He 111, Henschel Hs 126, Junkers Ju 52, Junkers Ju 88, Messerschmitt Bf 109 and Siebel Si 204.
