Luftfahrtverlag-START

German publisher Luftfahrtverlag-START produces the long-running periodicals Luftwaffe Im Focus and U-Boot Im Focus, covering World War Two aircraft and submarines respectively. These dual English/German language softback works offer fastidiously researched content and many photos that are previously unseen, along with superb colour artwork. Along with LIF and UIF volumes, START also publishes lavish hardback reference books along similar lines, but with more pinpoint themes, including armour. Both the books and softbacks have also inspired several decal sheet releases, with the markings being in the most usable and relevant scales. If you are in any way interested in building Lufwaffe aircraft or Kriegsmarine U-boats, reference doesn't get much better or inspiring.
