This decal set is entitled “Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6, Gustavs over the Balkans” and covers three quite unusual machines:
- Bf 109 G-6, ‘White 12’, flown by Uffz. Anton Riemer of 7./JG 77, Mizil, Romania, January 1944.
- Bf 109 G-6, ‘Black 5’, 2./JG 53, Borovo, Croatia, May 1944.
- Bf 109 G-6, W.Nr. 166133; flown by Capt. Constantin “Bâzu” Cantacuzino, San Giovanni near Foggia, Italy, 27th August 1944.
The first two options have never been reproduced in decal form before, whilst the last one did not receive enough attention from other manufacturers. Decals include bonus emblems of the Romanian Grupul 9 Vânătoare.
The decal sheets are printed by industry leader, Cartograf of Italy, which ensures top printing quality and ease of application. These are complemented by instructions that differ from the plain market standard. What you get are essentially high quality posters with accurate and inspiring illustrations created by Janusz Swiatlon. Each subject is presented on an A4-sized sheet, with large side aircraft profiles printed on the front, and the remaining artwork, photos and all necessary information laid out on the rear side. This way you not only get some cool decals for your model kit, but also attractive posters to adorn your man cave, at the same time !
