Scott Van Aken

This particular sheet is for the last of the line when it comes to the wartime 109s; the Bf-109K-4. There is no recommended kit, but in 1/48 you can choose from Hasegawa, Fujimi, and Hobbycraft right from the box. If you want to do a touch of modification, then the Revell G-10 kit can also be used.

First is red 1 from 10./JG 27 in 81/83/76. Canopy framing is RLM 66 and the plane has a green Reich Defense band. The fin is one of those that was prepainted in RLM 81 with dark green hard edged mottles. The original tactical number has been overpainted.

Blue 16 is from 12./JG 27 and like the previous plane, has a green RVD band. This one is in RLM 75/83.

Red 7 (could also be blue 7 of 12./JG 27) is a 10./JG 27 plane, also with the green band. The now standard RLM 81/83/76 camouflage scheme.

Finally white 8 from JG 52. This RLM 81/83/76 plane is not particularly colorful, but there are color photos of this plane on the back of the instruction sheet to help you along.
