This is Virgil O’Neil's fourth annual engagement Calendar on a Luftwaffe
theme. This year's calendar visits the theme of Luftwaffe Aces final missions.
This Calendar follows a similar format to the earlier offerings with a soft cover, bound by plastic spiral
ring-binder, in a square format approximately 21.5cm x 21.5cm. There are 94
pages plus covers.
There is one week to each engagement page. These
pages are punctuated with wartime milestones, important Luftwaffe
aircraft dates and, of course, US public holidays and other relevant planning
This time, the subjects and the colour artwork are devoted exclusively to the
final missions of 12 Luftwaffe pilots, including some interesting aircraft
types! Each month includes a composite image
of a model in an action setting, a description of the development and/or
operations of the type, plus a glossy, attractive colour profile.
I always look forward to seeing Virgil's latest desk calendar, and this
year's edition will be open on my work desk for 2005.
The "Luft '46 Engagement Calendar" will be a good
companion on the modelling bench or an appropriate gift for a Luftwaffe
It will cost you more than a Gary Larson desk calendar, but it is certainly
much more individual too!
Thanks to Virgil O'Neil for the review sample.
