Nazi War plane models: Missing decal swastika ?
 
I have built a bunch of plastic model airplanes :mostly AMERICAN
and British War Planes of WW2. I also have built a few German
NAZI fighter planes . The decals for these Nazi planes are complete
EXCEPT for the NAZI SWASTIKA that normally goes on the tail
rudder top area. Most photos of real aircraft show this symbol but
the 3 models purchased do not provide it.

Does any one know why this is ? Do model makers fear a revival
of the THIRD REICH ? If you google "Nazi flags" on your computer you
will see many companies selling swastika flags,books and just about
everything about NAZI Germany you could want. (That's where I got
a small swastika to zerox for my models.):rolleyes:

regards,

No, the fact is simply that the swastika is BANNED in other countries - including a large number of European countries. Therefore, instead of creating models for both, most manufacturers decided to use the LCD principle and not include them with any model.

Although in the US we tolerate such symbols and allow people to continue to display and incarnate their ideas, they are thoroughly banned in most western European countries. Without making a judgment on the historical or moral justification on this, that is just the way it is - even if it involves models.

Go to Squadron.com and you will find sheets of decals with the swastika in various sizes.

Europeans have no desire to deal with ANY Nazi symbolism, dress, ideas or actions, which like n1786b stated, extends to models. I found this out recently, and can understand it. There's a large aftermarket supply of decals that are historically accurate, and you'll probably find all the swastika decals you need to complete your models. Like you, I don't want to build a German aircraft and not have it completely accurate, missing the "hakenkreuz" just makes it look odd. I don't know why the Soviet banner isn't banned also...although they weren't as blatently awful as the Nazis, millions died and many millions more were enslaved and imprisoned under the Soviet regime. But maybe the same could be said of the bad old days of the US....:eek:
