    Hi! Ive been collecting original parts for this crazy project for 3 years, I have some good pieces for the moment. But I need more!! Iam interested in any parts, instruments, documentation etc.
    The modell is the A-3 , wich was used here in Norway for convoy missions. All the best from a former LW mechanic( former life...)

    Chris :shock:

    But since Iam no computer nerd, I need some help with how to put in interesting pics on this site can you give a hint?Wasting my time in the bush looking for interesting scrap.....

    For example I have pic wich is 248kB but it doesnt fit, do they have too be smaller? I only get the answer : The Extension array is not allowed.


    Best regards Luftwaffe4ever

    No , I am sorry not! I was born 30yrs to late...... But I am VERY interested in the Luftwaffe war in the icecold north, also otherplaces of course, since the same airmen flew their machiness all over the Eruopean war theater. But ,once I get to know a real Bordmechaniker on a JU 188 he served in the KG 26/9staffel . He was stationed in Grosseto, Montepellier, Værnes etc. It was very interesting to hear his storys , for example when they torpedod allied shipping in the Med.
    But now his gone, so after that I decided to rebuild the cockpit of a plane he flew.

    Well thats about it!
    Best regards Bordm. K26 8)
