From the spectacular cover image of
a Ju88 draped in the newly discovered blue 83, to the collection
of Arado 234s that close out the volume, this collection of 124
profiles is sure to please those with an interest in the Luftwaffe's
bomber arm. It is great news indeed to see this unique collection
of aircraft given the same treatment as the more familiar Me109's
and FW190s that make up much of Claes's work.
This review is dedicated to the memory of Don Watters, a friend and fellow enthusiast who passed too soon to share the appreciation of this publication. Vale Don. 15/4/57-28/7/17
I received your new Profile No.7 Luftwaffe Bombers 2 weeks Friday. So I have had a chance to sit down and have a good read and go through the profiles. Very informative and an eye-opener in the process. What an exceptional book. This is your best work so far. The question is "How are you going to top this?" Looking forward to your next great set of profiles. Best regards,
First off, I must apologise for the
delay in acknowledging receipt of this book. It's been here for
a few weeks now; my excuse is that I haven't been able to get
my nose out of the pages long enough to email you!
I have just finished reading through
Claes' latest Profile book (No. 7 - Luftwaffe bombers) which
I received last week. I am in awe of the detail which Mr. Sundin
achieves in his art work. This is not simply great work, it is
work which sets a bar for detail and research into aircraft of
the Second World War. A must have title. Thank you Claes.
I received your books few days ago
and already spent a couple of hours to read them carefully !
Thank you for your book, which I have been enjoying looking through. To date, this is the highlight of my collection - the illustrations are some of the best I've seen. It is thoroughly researched and highly detailed. I was lucky enough to receive the special edition, which is excellent. I look forward to your new publications in this series.

Superb. Kudos for Claes, he did it
again. Although it seems impossible, the new book is even better
than the previous ones (and that was very very difficult). He
elevates the aircraft profiles to the category of ART and the
info is really adequate. German bombers in the book look like
they are going to take off, and especially the "Blitz"
( I really like this plane). Again, looking forward your next
book. Thanks for making us happier with your profiles. Waiting
for your news about a new book. Best regards.
I've got your latest book in perfect shape and I must say it is really a pleasure to browse through. You have treated us all to a veritable smörgåsbord of very interesting and varied subjects whose rendition is ultra realistic owing to your clever use of scale effects in the color gradation. Also I find the embedded detail is rewarding to the eye of the most exacting enthusiast as it puts always to the test his/her knowledge of the subject. I'm looking eagerly forward to your next book.Thanks,
Now I've "looked through" your latest book. It can be studied and read over and over, in several portions and year for year several times ...This book is the best you have produced - a perfect overview of Luftwaffe Bomber's fleet. The book begins with a very good description of the bomber arm and its tasks and weaknesses. Very illustrative to see the size and appearance of the different bombs, compared with an ordinary bloke. One get a good understanding of how it could be to deal with these bombs (and its effect). And then the amazing size comparison between the different bomber types. I do not know if any have seen all these types of "live" (and I do not think many have done it either) that they differed so much in size - it makes understanding even better when you see the profiles. And what fantastic profiles and texts !! I understand that it has taken time to get so much information about each described profile. You have woven in so so much about the history of the current profile and the current events, Wonderful! And the end of the book - a complete compendium, thank you for that. I'm really happy (especially as I like the He 177). You've got so many variants of all kinds. I only wonder - what will be the next book now when this masterpiece is finished? Greetings and thanks for a great book
I was absolute surprised concerning the content of this book. All what I have hoped was fulfilled! Absolute super detailed and researched profiles of my favorites Do 217 and He 177 witch ordnance (never seen before) and He 111 an Ju 88/188!, I think this is the best profile book at the moment world wide. I am hot to receive further books of this series! Hopefully a second book witch Luftwaffe Bombers or Zerstörer aircraft, Schlachtflieger or Training aircraft??? A super book with a moderate prize - ideal source for the modeler & historian!!! Dear Claes - supply us in the future with more stuff like this concerning the LUFTWAFFE, Cheers
I've got it ! happy like a kid!, Really, a beautiful book showing the evolution of camouflage from the beginning to the and of WWII. The dark blue RLM83 is really original. I would like to know if it was use for night fighters too? Thanks a lot again. Great work, don't stop, you know I'm looking forward seeing the next one. Cheers,
Bombers landed safely on my hands
, Another hit, a ( Super Nova ) added in WW 2 Luftwaffe panel
. At the end, Luftwaffe Bombers are so fascinate as are their
brothers Fighters, Great are: the bombs index , late war camo,
RLM 83 color, and of course markings and texts. A must for the
library of every aviation fan , Greetings from a very pleased
customer and friend. Looking forward for yours next surprise,
Claes, I have just finished a enjoyable
time in my favorite chair reading your new German bomber book,
excellent work in all respects. I appreciate the fact that you
included more profiles on the machines which we do not usually
get to see in such detail such as the He 177 and Ar 234, Also
this is the first time I have seen RLM 83 rendered, a very interesting
color and the use of this color with the wave mirror pattern
makes some most interesting looking machines. Lastly I enjoyed
seeing you "holding" the scale ruler on the bomb illustration
page! I am looking forward to your next work, they are always
a treat for the eyes. Very good value. Best wishes,
I've just received your last book and it is awesome! German bombers books are scares and this book shows the great variety of camouflages one can find in the Luftwaffe. Late war bombers are especially beautiful to me! But blue bombers got my heart! Congratulations for your very high quality work! Brest regards,
Yesterday I received your profile book, Luftwaffe Bombers"excellent service as usual. I have all your profile books and every new book is better: the content, quality and details of the profiles and the information provided for each airplane. On this case the text included for each profile is very helpful and the selection of the profiles is really worthy, it is again another must for any "luftmaniatic", modeler or just having interest on the air warfare. The use on several profiles of the "new" dark blue RLM83 hue has been a great and welcomed surprise (waiting for the final verification of this colour).Unfortunately now I must to wait several months for your next profile book..Best regards
This is really excellent .The new
profiles are very accurate and well detailed. The bomber ordnance
and aircraft in scale are quite useful references for size. Overall
an outstanding work with amazing profiles and information. Well
I just got your new book, it's excellent. Thank you again for everything. See you soon for your new books in preparation. Cheers,
Today, on 10 October, I've just received your fine profile book-No7 LUFTWAFFWE BOMBERS. Fantastic book! All the profiles are very attractive to me. I don't have good informations about Luftwaffe Bombers. So, this book is very useful to me. I appreciate your great work. Regards,
I received the book on Friday. I immediately scanned through it and I must say that it is amazing. Your profiles are really the best and most accurate one can find. Especially I like the late war bombers with the dark camouflage schemes. Usually you find a lot of fighter profiles, but only a few bomber profiles. Your book is really a great work, filling a gap in WWII profiles. Looking forward to future releases!
124 perfect profiles have arrived and I have checked the content and as usual it's perfect, better profiles are probably not available anywhere. That is my definite opinion. I like the selection and to include a bit more unusual plane plan like He 177 as well as variants of Do 217 and Ar 234.The infinite variation of camouflage is of great interest to me and perfectly shown in the book. Especially the RLM 83 fascinates me. I also have to mention in my review how good the texts are in the book, informative, clear and highly interesting. Very good! I also liked the bomb size comparison illustration, the highest grade. Looking forward to the next profile book.
A very satisfied book buyer:
