Real or not, "luftwaffe" / "wehrmacht"

Postby epicurus » Mon Mar 02, 2015 12:47 pm

Hi everyone,

I would love some help or second opinions about this..

I'm a beginner in this vintage field but really hooked on this JLC WWII model, often referred to as "luftwaffe" or "wehrmacht".

I guess I don't know enough about the original versions but as far as I can tell more details than the crown differ and I'm not sure if this is a bad deal or not. I'm also interested in any information you can give me about the model.

Four pictures below, original or fake?

Thanks!

Hi, while it looks similar, it's not that model. The Luftwaffe model has a MUCH earlier movement serial number and the case is different. I'm not convinced what you are showing is a JLC case. How is stamped on the insides?
