    I'm trying to put together a reference sheet for the emblems used by the Luftwaffe during the war. I have the most common but I need others including some from non-famous units (like JG 6, etc.) If you have a pic I would very much appreciate it, just post here. Once done, I'm going to post this on the forum for all to use.

    The best pic size I need is around 200 x 200 pxs.

    Thanks

    Thanks Snautzer but the problem is they are too small and not very clear. I'm looking for well defined pics if possible. Thanks!

    .PSD is a Photoshop file, and each emblem is in it's own seperate layer...

    A .PSD file can also be opened with Paintshop...not sure about other imaging programs, though

    I have a fairly good-sized collection, let me see when I can round up

    Someone might consider erasing the megaupload link above, every time I have ever used that service it opens a popup window with a virus. Several of the free file hosting services do the same thing but I have found filesonic has always been safe. If you have downloaded the file through the megaupload link above, please run your virus software to find the virus and if you need help finding a really good free anti virus PM me. There is nothing wrong with the file that our member posted just the free service that allows you to download it. Malwarebytes is a free virus scanner that I use and most pro computer nerds use, it catches many viruses that Mcafee and Norton don't. Keith
