    I wonder why Nytrunner said "no" in the "Do you like it" poll?

    I'd appreciate the feedback.

    I think that's seriously cool. There's been a lot of takes on the Red Max, but that one's pretty unique. Uber hush-hush?

    The use of the Iron Cross (in various) forms pre & post-dated the NAZI era and has more cultural than political significance.

    Here it is on two Cold War German F-104's:

    A swastika, on the other hand, would be unacceptable. Many scale modelers refuse to use it in spite of historic relevance.

    Straight is called the Balkenkreuz and was used by the German Wehrmacht from 1935 to 1945. It wasn’t a Nazi symbol (not like the Hakkenkreuz), but it hasn’t been used since WWII by the German military (that I could find when I researched it last year.)

    I dig the twist of the theme. Very original.

    Btw, the moment I saw this thread, I had a flashback to the movie Blazing Saddles and the show scene of Lili von Shtüpp (Madeline Kahn)..... Love that movie.

    The 'trumpeted' cross is generally referred to as a Maltese cross. It was the symbol of the Hospitaler Crusaders. The two points at the end of each limb is what separated it from other crosses used by the various fighting orders during the Crusades. The Hospitalers ended up in Malta after being evicted from the Holy Land and Rhodes by the various Saracen factions that they fought over the centuries. They were never removed from Malta however despite some serious efforts to dislodge them. Their culture carried on in Malta, and their insignia took on added significance there.
