Oh great another 109 decal sheet. Well yeah, but this one is different. This one has cartoon characters on the sides. Big cartoon characters!

Contained in a standard ziplock bag is one decal sheet with markings for six airplanes from 7./JG-53 based in Sicily in 1943 and two smaller sheets with fuel stencils. I believe they are printed by Cartograf these are some gorgeous decals for some very unique airplanes. The sheet is the standard 9x6 decal sheet with markings for the known cartoon aircraft. All of them are basically marked the same with the exception of the cartoon character. The decals provide you with all the aircraft numbers and characters. You get crosses, swastikas and fuel stencils for eight aircraft . Four sets of JG-53 emblems are included. There are no additional stencils included. You’ll have to source them elsewhere.

The instructions are printed on a standard A4 sheet in full color front and back. There is a lot of great information included. Four view drawings show you all views to paint the 109s.

This sheet is really cool with some unique markings. If you want to set your 109G-6 apart this is a great way to do just that. Plenty of colorful cartoons and 109s, what more could you want?

Highly recommended

Reviewer Bio

Floyd S. Werner Jr.

Building models since the age of 7, I’ve become known for my Bf-109s and helicopters. I currently run Werner’s Wings. I was previously the ‘star’ of the Master Class Model Building Video series. I’ve been published numerous times on various website, including Hyperscale and ARC. My work has been in FSM and Great Scale Modeling 2001, as well as, numerous other model magazines. I’m a published author with my Squadron/Signal Walkaround book on the Kiowa Warrior. My models have continuously won many regional and national awards. My unique model photography gives my models instant recognition for their historical perspective.

I’m a retired from the Army after 21 years of flying Cobras and Kiowa Warriors, including tours in Iraq, Bosnia, Korea, and Germany. I’m also a retired Flight Officer for the Baltimore City Police and flew their helicopters chasing bad guys. I’m currently flying Cobras and Hueys with the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation.

I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart, Yvonne, for 42 years. Our daughters have blessed us with six grandchildren. My passions continue to be his family, friends, helicopters, models and airplanes, especially the Bf-109 and my beloved AH-1 Cobra. My motto has always been - MODELING IS FUN!
