Eduard's Bf-109G series of models is one of my favorite models. As such I tend to build a lot of them. They are a lot of fun to build and look great when completed. The Eduard decals are printed by Eduard, and are very thin and beautifully done. Because of their thinness, they fit into all the panel lines with ease, and the carrier film disappears. The only thing that I've had an issue with the thinness of the decals is that they stick real fast if you don't have enough water under them. This is not a bad thing just an observation. Eduard has released this sheet of decals which contains enough different styles to do at least two aircraft.

The decals come in a typical European self-sealing/re-sealing plastic packaging. The decals are protected by a thick card stock between the decals and the instructions. The instructions are simple as they should be. You don't need a whole lot of instructions for just these crosses.

The decal themselves are printed perfectly by Eduard. They are very thin. They are printed on a 3.5 x 7 inch decal sheet with 22 crosses on the sheet. Four for the bottom with a black outline. Two black and white with black outline crosses, normally associated with the bottom of the wings. Four white crosses with no center color for the fuselage sides. There is also eight crosses with a white outline and black center that can be used on the fuselage sides or bottom of the wings. Four upper wing white outline crosses complete the package.

These crosses will work flawlessly with your Eduard Bf-109, and actually they will work with any Bf-109G. They are thin, in register, and perfect decals. This sheet is a nice addition just in case you need them.

Highly recommended!
