Papermodels for purposes preparatory to war

I believe that last pic was used in one of Airdave's caption threads.



Anyone seen a butterfly boat?

Dear Matt:
I wonder if any of those models are still around to reproduce. They look to be in the range of 1/25 scale I like the idea of simple tracks and printed wheels.
Wondering,
MILES

These cardmodels were produced from 1939 to about 1944 by the Berlin/Germany firm Dr. M. Matthiesen & Co. KG, edited by the NSFK or similar german authorities of the IIIrd Reich. They were used by Hitler youth and Wehrmacht personnel for instruction purposes ("friend or foe?"). NSFK was a Nazi party organization for aviation (= Nationalsozialistisches Flieger Korps).
There were approximately 30 aircraft models, 6 ships and 11 army models.
The scale for aircrafts was 1/33,33, the scale for ships was 1/200, the scale for army items (tanks etc.) was 1/20.
Sometime after the war some of these they were (more or less legally) reproduced and are now occasionally found on internet sites...
Read more about it in the article by Axel Huppers, pages 55-58 in: Zur Geschichte des Kartonmodellbaus, Heft 1, ed. by Arbeitskreis Geschichte des Kartonmodellbaus. - Hamburg: Scheuer & Strüver 2001.
Kind regards -

That looks like Stuka pilot extraordinaire Hans-Ulrich Rudel in the first three photos. I’ve always wondered if these models were available anywhere.

The first time I saw some of these pictures, a tank pattern was also shown, ostensibly of one of the built models. I don't remember where I found the article, and haven't found my saved copy of it yet. The pattern was too low a resolution to print and build, but might be good enough for someone to recognize. I'll post it here if I manage to find it.
