    Default Luftwaffe Aircraft Emblems

    Hello, I've been looking through this site and I'm amazed at all of the Luftwaffe Emblem relics that have been removed from aircraft that have survived in the various collections posted. My main interest is digitally recreating the Luftwaffe Emblems. It can be a difficult task using blurred black and white photos to be able to draw an accurate replica of how the emblems looked on the aircraft. Seeing these relics is the best source for the correct colours, proportions, and application whether it be stencilled or hand painted. If anyone who has any Luftwaffe emblems in their relic collections would be kind enough to post a photo I would be a happy man.

    Many thanks for your time and for sharing these priceless historical relics.

    I have a feeling a number of those you've seen posted here were recently revealed to be fakes, if my understanding was correct.

    Thanks Nitram for the heads up. Would you happen to know what particular emblems they were.

    Anything posted by 'Swingcat' for a start.

    Edit: Except the large piece of Hess's Bf110, but that wasn't his anyway, it's in the IWM collection.

    That was who I was referring to, I just wasn't certain as I didn't really pay much attention to that banning.

    Thank you Gentlemen... Just go's to show how careful you've got to be these day's. The money these items could sell for must far outweigh the time and effort expended in fabricating such an item. They look very authentic. Well my original appeal still stands but for any real Luftwaffe emblems please.

    Do these help? Sorry, no sizes available but the colours are supposed to be correct.

    Save them to your images folder and you can blow them up for close detail.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thank you Big Ned ever so much taking the time to post those images. I already have most of the books focusing on Luftwaffe emblems. Most of the drawings contained are artists impressions and not precisely accurate. Which is why I search for the emblems that have been cut from the actual aircraft as the primary source.

    Thanks again
