Aces High

Eric Hartmann - A Man Above All Others.

Having plugged Aero in my last post it seems only fair to plug Eastman in this post and in particular the gorgeous, unimprovable Hartmann Jacket. The Blonde Knight of Germany, Eric Hartmann was the highest scoring ace of all time, accredited with 352 aerial victories during his service. His ability in aerial combat was astounding. Awarded countless times for his skill and bravery he was eventually bestowed with the highest decoration for combat in the German armed forces; the Knights Cross, with oak-leaves, swords and diamonds. This is a faithfull copy of his jacket...and I want one!
