Decal Sheet

Ok so what do you do when you screw the pooch on the initial release of a model kit and you’ve already invested lots of money on decals? Well if you are Eduard then you simply offer them as a separate item to use on your new kit.

I built three of the initial Bf-109Gs from the 2014 release. The decals were the best thing about the release, despite size issues with kit, the decal were perfect. They were designed properly and even scaled perfectly for 1/48th scale.

Eduard has packaged up the set of decals and stencils in this release. They are packaged in a ziplock type bag with a thin card stock that protects them from the elements and bending. The individual aircraft decals are printed by Cartograf so you know they are perfect. They are thin, in perfect register and quite colorful. They react perfectly with setting solutions. Also included in this release is the stencil sheet that is printed by Eduard. The stencil decals are printed on a 2 ½ x 4 ¾ decal sheet. The finesse of the writing is legible in this scale. There are enough stencil decals for one aircraft. There are options available for fuel, oil and MW50 markings as well as black and red versions of most markings.

The decals are very thin. So 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.

The aircraft include two from JG-27, JG-1, JGr50, and JG-54.

You will have to download the instructions for the decal and stencils at this link, they are not included.

I did not find any issues with any of the decals on my models. They performed flawlessly and, most importantly, look great on the model. The decals by either Cartograf or Eduard are all perfect for the Bf-109.

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!
