Eduard 1/48 Wilde Sau Bf109G-6 JG 300 Decals
This exciting decal sheet is for Eduard's Messerschmitt Bf109G-6 kit. It covers 5 colorful night fighters from JG 300 "Wilde Sau" (wild boar). The aircraft are as follows:
1) "White 15", flown by Uffz. Otto Leisner, 1./JG 300, Bad Worishöfen, Germany, August 1944. This G-6 was overall RLM 74 Grey with large splotches of RLM 70 Green over RLM 76 Light Blue. The spinner was black with a narrow white spiral and an RLM 70/white backing plate.
2) "Blue 20", 16./JG 300, Salzburg-Ainring, Germany, August 1944. This Bf109G wore the mid War RLM 74 Grey/RLM 75 Grey Green camouflage over RLM 76 Light Blue. The fuselage was mottled with a semi-dense application of RLM 74/75 and the RLM 76 wrapped over the wing leading edge with a wavy demarcation line. The spinner was black with a narrow white spiral, RLM 70/white backing plate and there was a red number 53 on the forward cowling. The fuselage Balkenkreuz had an RLM 74 "fill."
3) "Yellow 1", flown by Lt. Manfred Dieterle, 3./JG 300, Bonn-Hangelar, Germany, April 1944. This G-6/R-6 had the under wing MG 151/20MM gondola cannon and it was overall RLM 76 Light Blue with 74 squiggles over black with an RLM 23 Red fuselage band. The spinner was black with an RLM 70 Dark Green/white backing plate.
4) "Yellow 7", 3. /JG 300, Bonn-Hangelar, Germany, April 1944. This G-6/R-6 also had the MG 151/20MM gondola cannon. This scruffy looking plane had the standard RLM 74/75/76 camouflage and a black spinner with a single, narrow yellow band and RLM 70/white backing plate. The original aircraft number and all the upper surface national markings were over painted with black. The lower surfaces were over painted with black and RLM 74 Grey.
5) "White 3 ", 1./JG 300, Germany 1944. This 109 was RLM 74/75/76 with an RLM 04 Yellow lower cowl. The upper fuselage was covered with RLM 74 squiggles and the spinner was RLM 70 with a narrow white spinner and an RLM 70/white backing plate.
The decals are up to Eduard's customary standards. They are crisply printed, fully legible, in register and have excellent color.
If you're looking for something different in a Messerschmitt Bf109G-6 camouflage scheme you'll find it on this great decal sheet from Eduard. I recommend this decal sheet and I would like to thank Eduard for the review sample.
