|My new profile book has already received fantastic reviews, check them all out here.|
I received this book on May 8 and here
are some immediate impressions.
Rudels first "Cannon Vogel" from Belgorod and his last from May -45, Henschel 129 with the balance blocks in place, a Me 262 A-2a whose pilot has only been listed as KIA in a chronicle of KG 51, Shark-mouth Ju-87, Fw 190 and Ju 87 from Finland, winter camouflage, the fantastic Henschel 123, etc., etc.
All done with Claes' "three-dimensional" style, where the aircrafts seems to lift from the pages.
For those with an interest in Luftwaffe's Schlachtflugzeug it is extremely well spent money.
Claes the superlatives dwindle ...
As usual, it is in my opinion just perfect,
or as close to perfect as anyone can get.
I also think you have done well with "late war" camouflage of example. Me 262 Fw 190 etc. I know that this subject is a pit filled with a lot of opinions.
The bonding, the printng, the paper is as usual perfect.
Once again, eternally grateful for a perfect book, and fast delivery. - Thanks!
I have not read the book yeat - only
glanced, but my first impressions is:
I've just received your fine book-LUFTWAFFE ATTACK AIRCRAFT (Profile book no 4) safely. I love it very much. Especially I'm very interested in profile no79 Henschel Hs129B-2. Very attractive!
Recieved the ProfileBook no 4 no 044 today. This is again a collection of airplanes more or less represented in publications however never covered by such high standard illustrations. In the profiles especially camouflage and weathering is very realistic. According to my knowledge of the matter the profiles correctly represent the true airplanes even under the consideration that mainly black and white photos had to be investigated. The illustrations give unrivaled evidence about your technical improvement as artisan over the years. For an enthusiast of Luftwaffe flying inventory an absolute must since also the first operational jets are included.
Simply gorgeous, would like to rank the work with 1+ (in Germany the highest possible judgement).

I got the book today. Worth its value
Well done, Cheers
Your new book arrived and it is a very
beautiful book with many interesting profiles, accompanied with
short comments. I discovered two Austrians, the "snake Ju87"
from Lt. Pöltz and the Hs 123 from Lt. Menapace.
I just received your book , and I want to congratulate you for this magnificent work .
And thanks for the additional sheets
I cannot say that volume 4 is better
than the previous volumes, as they were already excellent and
volume 4 continues this magnificent series! :-)
Thank you very much for this one and keep up the good work! I'm really hoping for still a lot more books and profiles to come!
I received your Profile Book No. 4 a few day ago and - as with your previous books - my expectations have been exceeded again! The attention to detail and the realistic look of your work is simply unrivaled. I also liked the fact that you choose quite a few subjects which have not been over-publicized...
Keep up the excellent work and best regards,
I enjoyed the superb profiles of Your new profile book No. 4. Well researched and realistic like no.1 and 2 and Your first German Panzer Profile book. I hope therefore, that more books about this themes will follow.
Waiting for the next hot copy
Just a quick email on how much I enjoyed
your new book. I know I say this every time but this is your
best yet! I have put it in prize of place in my bookcase.
About your last book. Having all you books I can say this one is the best at least for me. I like the mix of aircraft types, nice selection of different markings, the "dynamics" of pages and the overall feeling. My favorite are the Henschels 123 all of them followed by Stukas and Wurgers. Hs 129s and Bf 109s complemented the overall mix also very well.
Simply "The best of Claes Sundin" - at least in my eyes.

Your new book, handsome autographed and everything was received with great joy the beginning of the week. Since my interest is focused on fighters the curiosity of this book was great, and I think I have had to look through it a few times so it had to sink in. The book is very, very nice and I admire your touch that really impresses me. Your artistic feel and your eye for small detail is what makes the end result incredibly good. It is interesting to see that there are so many schemes and markings that one has to recognize.
Very nice Claes! I can´t find the
words for it. How the hell do you find the time to do all this?
Got the book today!...Wow..it is your
best work till now! Enjoying every book I got from you.
I just wanted to let you know that your
book arrived safely.
The book has arrived it's simply
Got the book today and fantastic as always, top notch profile art with interesting subjects!
Your latest has arrived. Again, outstanding job.
I am really glad your "friends" convinced you to profile the Hs 123. That aircraft has so much character to it!
Thanks for this new title which is really an exciting new publication for those with an interest in the Luftwaffe. As we know dedicated profiles of ground attack aircraft is an area that has been often been overlooked for the more familiar and perhaps glamorous Jagdwaffe. Not so this time!
The introductory text with its discussion of the importance of the ground attack or, "flying artillery"concept to the the origins of the Luftwaffe and the discussion of weapons loads, sets the tone for the profiles that follow. The potted history of the key aircraft types was informative and I particularly enjoyed the revaluations of the storied histories of some of the key types.
Then onto the real stuff, the profiles! They certainly do not disappoint. In this volume you have managed to create a great new collection highlighting once again the variety of camouflage and heraldry that keeps students of the Luftwaffe fascinated. Featuring aircraft from all theatres, the combination of accurate colour and the fine detailing of weathering and age, gives each subject life. The weathering aspect for these subjects has gone into a new dimension! I was also intrigued by the fine detail work on the weapons loads carried by many of the subjects, for example the inscriptions made by ground crew on a bomb load.
The descriptors commentating on the history of the aircraft and related aircrew who flew the aircraft is again a great addition.
I think the the large number of profiles of previously unrepresented subjects depicted in this level of detail, represents tremendous value.
CLAES MY FRIEND I JUST RECEIVED THE BOOK AND I IMMEDIATELY DIVED IN IT, THE RESULTS FANTASTIC PLEASURE AND SATISFACTION , THE WORK ON THE PROFILES A MASTERPIECE . A BOOK WHICH MUST BE IN ALL THE LIBRARIES OF LUFTWAFFE FANS. LOOKING FORWARD FOR YOUR NEXT SURPRISE .
