This next new sheet from Exito Decals covers three WNF built Bf-109G-10s. All of these options have the Erla canopy, the tall wooden rudder with two trim tabs, short tail wheel, and the base cowling that curves up just at the windscreen. They also have the large wheel fairings on the upper wing surface.

The initial offering is from 5./JG 52 in Hungary during March of 1945. It is in the standard RLM 74/75/76 scheme with a yellow fuselage band and a yellow V under the port wing.

Next is a rather neat Yugoslav plane from October 1950. This has a green and brown patched camouflage scheme with a slogan on the upper wing surfaces.

Finally a plane from 6./JG 52 based at Ainring, Germany in May of 1945. It is in the late war green/grey scheme with a yellow cowling band and rudder. 

Decals are superbly printed by Cartograf and this sheet is also available in 1/72 scale. What makes this set truly unique is that each of the markings options' placement diagrams are really full size color prints suitable for framing. The front gives left and right while on the back are upper and underside images as well as notes and sometimes a photo or two of the aircraft in question. Paint references are with AK and Mr Hobby Color, but most brands make the shades used.
