What do you do when your kit is too large but your decals aren't? Well if you are Eduard you offer the decals for sale to go with you newly released Bf-109G. These decals were designed for the Royal Class release of the Eduard 2014 Bf-109G release.

Packaged in a resealable package with card stock support, this 8.5 x 13 inch sheet is printed by Cartograf. There is also a small stencil sheet printed by Eduard. That means that they are as perfect as decals can be. The colors are perfectly in register. The decals are very thin and quite colorful.

The sheet covers SIXTEEN aircraft covering every version from the G-2 to the G-14. It also covers German, Italian, Finnish, Hungarian, Rumanian, and Swiss and aces like Hartmann, Barkhorn, Baer, Trautloft, Schroer and Gabler. The colors range from Natural Metal finish to the standard 74/75/76 to Desert colors of 78/79 as well as the beautiful greens of JG-54.

Bottom line there is something for everyone here. Having used these decals on my original release of the Eduard Bf-109 I can tell you that they react flawlessly even over the natural metal finish of Gabler's aircraft.

As for the stencils, they are printed on a 2 1/2 x 4 3/4 decal sheet. The finesse of the writing is legible in this scale. You will have to use plenty of water to move them around on the model once you add them, but they work flawlessly. Even if you don't use setting solutions these decals will snuggle down beautifully.

I did not find any issues with any of the stencils on my two models. They performed flawlessly and, most importantly, look great on the model. Each sheet has enough decals for one aircraft. There are options available for fuel, oil and MW50 markings as well as black and red versions of most markings.

There are no instructions included in the packaging but they are available at this link.

You are wondering will they fit the new Eduard 109 or even the Hasegawa or Zvezda kit. Yes, they will fit just fine. They are the same size as the new decals.

Some will question the costs of the sheet but for me sixteen aircraft is worth the price of admission. They are world class decals that are printed by the best decal manufacturer and meticulously researched by Eduard. You will not find better decals on the market. If you pick up some extra stencils, also available from Eduard, you will have enough decals to build all these aircraft with some great marking options.

Highly recommended
