Iliad Designs 48002: 7./JG 53 Cartoon Aircraft

Units: See review




Scott Van Aken

This is a reprint of an earlier sheet from Iliad Designs. It incorporates some updated information that has come to light since the initial release. There are six different options provided on the sheet with sufficient insignia for four airplanes.

You may notice that there is not a spinner spiral decals provided. Unlike most, this spiral was the same width throughout and can be quite easily painted on using 1.5mm masking tape. There is more information on this in the instruction sheet.

All of the aircraft are Bf-109G-6/trop aircraft without the sand filter. They are painted in RLM 74/75/76 with a white fuselage stripe and a yellow lower cowling. Note that half of them have a fairly high fuselage demarcation line while the other half have them in the lower position. All have side mottling. There is additional information on the camo scheme included in the instruction sheet.

The sheet itself is superbly printed as are all Iliad Design offerings. If you missed it the first time around, you now have the opportunity to snag your own copy.
