This second new Eagle Strike 109 sheet also covers three options, most of them in RLM 74/75/76. Once again, the recommended kits are Hasegawa and Revell, but don't overlook the Academy/Hobbycraft ones if you have them in your stash as these markings should fit without any traumas.

First is a Hungarian Bf-109G-10 from 101/2. It is in RLM 75/83/76 with yellow nose band and rudder. It also has the area under the insignia painted out in a dark grey. Fortunately, Eagle Strike provides this area under the decals though you'll have to paint over the swastika.

Next is Yellow 25, a 109G-14 from KG(J) 55. In addition to the yellow fuselage band, rudder and lower cowling, this one has black spinner with a thin spiral. Standard fighter camo.

Finally, from the Rumanian Air Force is this Bf-109G-2. It carries the standard fighter camo and has a yellow fuselage band and lower cowling. 

The sheet includes full insignia and data markings for all three options.
