My name is Simon Schatz. I'm a hobby aviation illustrator and historian. In 2002 my first aircraft profile, a Focke Wulf Fw 190 A-8, was published in an aviation book. Since then many more of my color profiles were published around the globe. Here I want to show you a small selection of these color profiles. Hope you enjoy the visit. I would appreciate getting comments and critiques regarding my artwork. Please use the comments buttons below the posts, or just write me an email: simon_der_flieger (at) yahoo (dot) de

Important note:

This website is dedicated to show planes flown by the German Luftwaffe during the Second World War. It's a source for historians, modellers and aviation enthusiasts. The planes at that time had swastikas on their tails. I just use them because of historical correctness. It's not my intention to glorify the Luftwaffe nor the Nazi regime it represented. I want to make clear that I strictly reject all Nazi ideals.
