This is Virgil O’Neil's sixth annual engagement Calendar on a Luftwaffe
theme. This year's calendar is dedicated to the theme of Luftwaffe fighter ace,
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 for the first half
of the year to Luftwaffe Ace Heinz Bar, his missions and aircraft. Each month
includes a text description of aircraft and operations, ranging from a Bf 109 E
in the Battle of Britain to two Me 262s at war's end, plus a glossy, attractive colour profile.
The remaining Aces pages follow the same format. The last five pages of the
Calendar are five pages of attractive and convincing composite artwork.
I always look forward to seeing Virgil's latest desk calendar, and this
year's edition will be open on my work desk for 2007.
"Luftwaffe Aces 2007 - An Engagement Calendar" will be an appropriate
companion on the modelling bench or an appropriate gift for a Luftwaffe
modelling fan, especially aficionados of Heinz Bar.
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.
