  journal={Astronomy and Astrophysics},
We have re-analyzed the Galactic O-star sample from [CITE] by means of line-blanketed NLTE model atmospheres in order to investigate the influence of line-blocking/blanketing on the derived parameters. The analysis has been carried out by fitting the photospheric and wind lines from H and He. In most cases we obtained a good fit, but we have also found certain inconsistencies which are probably related to a still inadequate treatment of the wind structure. These inconsistencies comprise the… 
Modeling the near-infrared lines of O-type stars
We use a grid of 30 line-blanketed unified stellar photosphere and wind models for O-type stars; computed with the code  in order to evaluate its potential in the near-infrared spectral domain.
