Here are a few pictures of mine. It was disappointing to hear some of the inaccuracies of the symbols on this. When you look at the HM production pics they don't show that white outline on the red eagle. Again I'm learning that HM's wheels and tire are mediocre at best. Not the biggest fan of the wheels on this one. Still I think its a great model. Do they come with the swastika covered for political correctness I guess. The blue dot was REALLY stuck on one of mine and I was afraid I'd damage the marking.

HM info
In 1934 Adolf “Dolfo” Galland joined the Luftwaffe and a fighter pilot in 1935 and flew with the
Condor Legion in Spain. When WWII broke out Galland was a Staffelkapitän flying 50 ground
attack missions in Poland. In February 1940 Galland became a Geschwader Adjutant. On May
12, 1940 he scored his first three aerial victories. On July 18, 1940 Adolf was promoted to Major.
On September 24, 1940 RAF Ace Harold Bird-Wilson became Galland’s 40th victim. By the end of
WWII Adolf Galland had accumulated 104 victories.

Those who don't learn about the past are doomed to repeat it
