Cutting Edge 24005: Bf-109G-6




See review


Scott Van Aken



This sheet is a bit unusual in that it covers just one aircraft, the plane of Herman Graf. This is probably one of the more brilliantly painted planes from the Jagdwaffe and Graf carried his colors on to other aircraft that he flew. In this case the plane was assigned to JGr 50 for the defense of Germany in 1943. The plane is in RLM 74/75/76 with side mottling in RLM 74/75. The aircraft also carries a completely white empennage. Lower cowling is yellow with a red spinner. The 'tulip' design on the nose is comprised of three colors; white, yellow and red. The fuselage number could be in green or red so both colors are provided.

What takes up most of the unique sheet are the three colors for the nose markings. These must be carefully placed in the proper order so that they will turn out well. The other sheet in this set is for common markings and insignia. CE provides all possible combinations of insignia types on this sheet and there are more than enough to do a single aircraft such as this. The end result will be a very colorful 109G-6!
