This new release is very timely with Hasegawa's 1/48 scale Messerschmitt Bf
109G-10 almost upon us. We are also fortunate to have the Revell Bf 109G-10
which, despite its age, still offers an accurate outline and nice surface
Markings are supplied for four aircraft:
- "Yellow 5" of 10./JG 51 featuring small main wheels and a
tall tail wheel. Camouflage is RLM 75 Grey-Violet and RLM 83 Dark Green.
- "White 3" probably of I./JG 52 with large wheel bulges on
the upper wings and short tailwheel. This aircraft is finished in 74/75
- "Blue 22" of II./JG 52. This is a colourful aircraft
painted in late-war browns and greens with prominent yellow markings and a
black/white quartered spinner. The subject is also interesting as it
displays the flat, rectangular fairing under the windscreen instead of the
more typical curved fairing. This has been identified as a "Type
110" cowling - nothing to do with the Messerschmitt Bf 110 though!
As a bonus, EagleCals have supplied a loose-leaf sheet with a reduced series
of drawings from researcher Jean-Claude Mermet. These drawings depict the many
subtle differences between the "Type 100" cowl and the "Type
To further enhance the package, two wartime colour photos of "White
3" are included.
Instructions incorporate nice colour side profiles, a description of each
aircraft, a list of references and scrap view drawings.
I also like EagleCals' last statement - "The final decision resides
with the modeler"!
This is another high quality offering that provides modellers all they need
to build and paint a number of interesting subjects.
EagleCals decals are available from Eagle
Editions Website or Hobby Retailers.
Thanks to Judy at Eagle Editions for the sample.
