I finished the first model of the Thunderbolt Fighters box. (1 of 4 complete with base)
I've censored the pictures as I've got some heavy reactions on them. Not on my blog , but on Facebook. I posted a WIP picture of Paint Table Saturday 306th edition on the Aeronautica Imperialis 2019 group on Facebook. Without any explanation nor contact , I got banned of the group. (And in anger I removed myself out of all painting/miniatures groups I've been a member of on Facebook.) So to avoid problems on my blog I've censored the pictures.
I don't see the problem as this is a page in our history. We can all avoid it or ignore it , it still is a part of our history. Also I'm not the only miniature painter that chose this topic. I've seen it at KMK Scale World. Lots of German (Nazi) vehicles ( tanks , airplanes , etc... ) with the symbol we all know : the Swastika. This symbol is over 3000 (others speak of 12000) years old ( long before the Germans ). It is currently used in architecture & religion in the regions of India and it will be used long after we are gone ...
The German colors of WW 1 &2 are even used in the same Facebook group that banned me (but without the symbols)! You've got to love those double standards !
Like this color-scheme & also camouflaged colored airplanes were used by the Germans.
But I'm glad I'm out of those stupid painting groups. Those groups made me aware of the world we live in and how the general public is. And let me put it very very mildly , it ain't positive. But I'm not going further into that. For me the world may end tomorrow !
Back to the project. This will become a group of 4 historical inspired Thunderbolt Fighters in the black , red and white color-scheme.
