15mm (1/100) 3D paper Focke-Wulf Ta-153.

This paper model from der Kampflieger lets the builder explorer several what-if marking schemes for the Focke-Wulf TA-183 jet fighter concept.

 In late 1942, the Focke-Wulf design team headed by Kurt Tank began sketching out concepts for swept-wing fighters built around the newly-developed turbojet engines. The TA-183 Design II concept called for a short fuselage, a large tail fin with high-mounted swept stablizers, and sharply-swept shoulder-mounted wings. Nicknamed the Huckbein after a mischief-making cartoon crow, the TA-183 concept was entered into the 1944 Emergency Fighter competition and won a development contract, but the Focke-Wulf facilities were captured by Allied troops before any prototype was completed.  Captured drawings, blueprints, and specifications provided a tantalizing look at the future for aeronautical engineers in the U.S., Britain, France, and the Soviet Union.

Perfect for the alternative WWII and Luft'46 games.

Multi-layered PDF allows for three camouflage schemes: gray mottled, green mottled, and desert tan. Other layering options allow for open or closed gear bays, and aircraft number.

Easy one page download.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
