Fw 190 Reich Defenders Part 2. Yes, we came up with four more astounding Butcher Birds for this set! First is Fw 190A-3, Red 7/Blue 1 (starboard) AND Blue 1/Red 7 (port), of an unknown unit. This very interesting A-3 features a late-war ground concealment scheme consisting of RLM 82/83 over the original 74/75. It IS possible that was an eastern front aircraft and received the infamous JG 53/54 experimental schemes using Russian paint stocks. There is no evidence of a yellow stripe under the fuselage cross visible in the photo. The exact colors of the numbers is also unclear. The 7 is darker than the yellow undercowl, but much lighter than the 1. The 1 is lighter than the Swastika. We think the colors are as shown, but the one could be black, and the seven could then be yellow or blue. Since the 7 is applied in the standard number position for the Fw 190, it appears the 1 was the new number for the aircraft during its final days. Next is Fw 190 A-6, White 11 with the personal black cat insignia of Oblt. Georg Schott, Staffelkapitan, 1./ JG 1, September, 1943. This great scheme included a white/black checkerboard cowl with yellow under cowl and kill marking on the rudder. Third is Fw 190A-5, Black Chevron + Chevron, Geschwaderstab, JG 1, September, 1943. This bird is considerably brightened by the red under cowl and white fin and rudder. The final subject is Fw 190A-4, Yellow 6, of I./JG 1 at Schiphol, Holland, July, 1943. Note the white/black checkerboard cowl checks are REVERSED from the previous subject (White 11)!! (And of course we give you the decals for each version) A yellow cowl ring and under cowl considerably enliven the nose of this bird.

Fw 190A Reich Defenders Part 1. Truly spectacular schemes on four Butcher Birds! First is A-6, 2./JG 1, Black 3, with a dramatic red/black checkerboard cowling and based in Holland in July 1943. Next is Fw 190 A-5 flown by Dietrich Wickop, Gruppenkommandeur, II./ JG1, Black 1 Bar. This ship has Wickop’s gigantic white/blue eagle presonal insignia AND the red serpent unit insignia! The third is Fw 190 A-8 flown by Hans Dortennman, Staffelkapitan, 4./ JG 54, Red 1 Bar, and sporting a blue RV band and yellow under cowl. The final bird is Fw 190 A-4, 1./JG 1, White 8. This ship is striking because of the white cowl with red under cowl and painted out insignia on the rear fuselage.

Fw 190 Butcher Birds Over Czechland #2. When JaPo published their seminal book Luftwaffe Over Czech Territory 1945 a few years ago, we were treated to a ton of fascinating and never-before-seen Luftwaffe paint and markings schemes. This set, second in our series, showcases five stunning Fw 190s. First is an Fw 190 F-8 of St.III/SG 10, Chevron Green 2 I, based at Stankov, West Bohemia. Note the "busy" dappled overpainting of the topside camouflage, as well as the yellow nose band, rudder, and underwing "V." The second ship is another F-8 also from St.III./SG 10, Chevron Green 5 I. Based at Dolni Kaminice, the entire rear fuselage was overpainted by hand in what was probably RLM 70, obscuring all previous camouflage and markings except the fuselage cross. The third plane was based at Hradec Kralove and was an Fw 190 F-8 from II./SG 4 nicknamed "Erni," White 3 Bar. Note the overall RLM 76 aft fuselage/fin, which was clearly a replacement unit. A fine example of late-war concealment practices, F-8 Yellow 11 Bar of 6./SG 4. Note the heavy dappling of what was most probably late war "80" series colors and the painted out previous tactical markings. The final bird is the extremely weathered Fw 190 F-8 of 5./SG 77 Black 7 Bar. Based at Pardubice, it featured a large yellow lightning bolt on the cowling and carried Panzerschreck rockets under the wings.

Bf 109E Emils #5. There are five very interesting Emils in this set, the first being Bf 109E-1, 6./JG 52, Yellow 2, 1940, with a yellow rudder & cowl, which also sports the unit’s blue/white stylized eagle. It also has evidence of an earlier tactical number that was painted out, with the Yellow 2 being farther forward than usual. Next is a surprising Bf 109E-1 III./JG 53, White 11 + I, Sept 1940. This bird has a broad red cowl stripe, and although it was an E-1, the canopy had been replaced with a "square" type. Next is the even more surprising Bf 109E-4, White 5 + I, of 7./JG 53 flown by H. G. Schulte. This ship had a white rudder and cowling, but a previously applied red cowl stripe is bleeding through the white paint. Even more unusual is the fact that the swastika was painted out! Next is the striking Bf 109E-3, Yellow 15, of 3./JG 52 flown by Karl Wolff, Oct 1940. This bird not only had a white cowl, the white continued all the way back to the windscreen! The wingtips and rudder where also white. The final subject is Bf 109E-3, Yellow 5, of II./JG 52 flown by Paul Gutbrod in Aug 1940. This bird had a yellow cowl and rudder, and also featured the pilot’s name painted under the canopy!

Fw 190A Reich Defenders Part 3. More cool Butcher Birds! First is Hptm Rudolf Klemm’s Fw 190 A-8 from 15./JG 54, Yellow 1~. Note the blue RV band and ID yellow applied only to the bottom of the rudder. Next is a spectacular Fw 190 A-4 from Gruppenstab I./JG 1. Flown by Oblt Rolf Strohal from Dellen in 1943, this was Black Chevron º. The black/white striped cowling and stylized eagle covering the exhaust area on the fuselage are sure attention-getters. The most impressive thing about the Fw 190 A-4 of II./JG 1 flown by Oblt Hans Mohr is the very broad white outline to the Gruppe Technical Officer markings, Black Chevron O Bar. Very unusual! The final bird is the white-cowled Fw 190 A-6 of 5./JG 1 flown by Lt Fritz Wegner, Black 3 Bar. Note the red undercowl on this ship, which truly makes an eye-catching scheme.

Dashing Fw 190 Doras #1. One of the very best late-war fighters, we now know the Dora also wore some of the most unusual and interesting camouflage and markings schemes in the Luftwaffe. The first ship in this set is Fw 190D-9, Red 3+-, of II./JG 6 discovered by the 7th Armored Division in Halle in 1945. You’ll note the strangely painted cowl and the overpainted previous tactical marking "7." Dating from mid 1944, the second Fw 190D-9 is Yellow 4 + I of III./JG 54, with a lucky (hopefully to him) shamrock and name "Bums" painted under the canopy. Painted out prior tactical markings are also visible on Fw 190D-9, Blue 9 + – of II./JG 6 discovered by the 69th Infantry Division at Halle in 1945. Ofw Heinz Marquardt flew the Fw 190D-9 marked White 11 + ~ while he was with 13./JG 51 in Germany at the very end of the war. Note the unpainted under cowl panel and replacement gun cover directly in front of the windscreen.

Zirkus Rosarius Part 1. TheVersuchsverband (the Trials and Research Unit of the Luftwaffe High Command) flew and assessed the capabilities of captured Allied fighters, and toured these aircraft to various Luftwaffe fighter units as the "Wanderzirkus (or Beute-Zirkus) Rosarius." The aircraft tested by them included P-51s, P-38s, P-47s, Spitfires, Mosquitos and a Typhoon. This set features a Mosquito B.IV coded T9+XB, 2./VVB OKL, based at Königsberg, Neumark, July 1944. Next is the P-47D-2-RA formerly YF*U of the 358 FS/355 FG and now coded T9+FK, 2./VVB OKL, Wunstorf, July 1944. The final ship is the remarkable P-51B formerly from the 334 FS/4 FG and now coded T9+HK, 2./VVB OKL, Neuruppin, late 1944. This unusual scheme consisted of natural metal over RLM 04 yellow rather than the typical topside color of RLM 74.

Zirkus Rosarius Part 2. This set includes markings for THREE schemes on TWO aircraft. The first is P-51B T9+CK, in a very colorful scheme of overall natural metal except for RLM 04 yellow undersides and tail, 2./VVB OKL, Summer 1944. The second aircraft is the famous P-47D-2-RA "Beetle" YF*U, flown by 2nd. Lt. William Roach of the 358th FS, 355th FG, and landed intact in occupied Europe on 7 November 1943. The first scheme is Roach’s original USAAF markings and the second scheme depicts the same ship after being partially repainted by the Luftwaffe (2./VVB OKL), Wunstorf, in July 1944, with overpainted US insignia and a RLM 04 yellow cowl ring and rudder added. Note the Germans RETAINED the original "Beetle" nose art! A third scheme of overall RLM74/04 is covered separately on our decal set CED48256, Zirkus Rosarius Part 1 (not currently available).

Zirkus Rosarius #3. This is a continuation of our earlier sets portraying Allied aircraft flown by the Versuchsband (Luftwaffe Trials and Research Unit). All birds were painted in the standard captured aircraft test scheme of RLM 74 over RLM 04. First is P-51B, T9+CK, of 2./VVB OKL, Wunstorf, Summer 1944. Next is the Spitfire XI formerly of 412 Sq, RCAF, now coded T9+EK, again from 2./VVB OKL, Neumark, Summer 1944. The final ship is the former 486 Sq RNZAF Typhoon Ia now coded T9+GK, 2./VVB OKL, Neumark, Summer 1944. These are truly unexpected and eye-catching standouts in any model collection.

Operation Barbarossa Bf 109s. Luftwaffe fighters in Russia displayed an amazing spectrum of camouflage schemes, colors, and markings. The first plane in this set is Bf 109E-4/B, Red 5, flown by Ofw Reinhold Schmetzer, 8./JG 77, July 20, 1941. What makes this ship remarkable are the red-piped yellow fuselage band, overall dark green topside camouflage, and 74/75/76 replacement panels. Note Schmetzer’s 20 kill markings on the fin. White winter camouflage overpaint covers Bf 109F-4, Yellow 6 + ~, 7./JG 54, seen in December, 1941. The unusual placement of the yellow fuselage band, nearly whitewash-free yellow nose, and removed main landing gear doors give this bird a noteworthy look. Desert-type camo on Bf 109F-2, Black 12, flown by Uffz. Peter Bremer of 2./JG 54 in the Autumn of 1941 is accentuated by the large nickname "Hermaennchen" (Little Hermann) painted under the canopy. This set is rounded out by another winter-camouflaged Bf 109F-4, Green – + -, flown by Oblt Otto Kath, Stab/JG 54, December, 1941.

Do 335s #3. It’s difficult to find a more sensational prop job from WW II than the Do 335 Pfeil (arrow). The five birds featured in this set include the V9, WNr 230009, in standard camouflage with factory code letters. The second is the two-seater Do 335 A-12, WNr 240112, renumbered as Air Ministry 223 and in RAF markings at the time we’ve depicted. The overpainted Luftwaffe markings are clearly visible, and you may model it with the original markings if you wish. Note the unpainted forward engine cowling that makes this such an extraordinary scheme. Of special note is the fact that although originally captured by US forces, the RAF test flew it several times, finally crashing and killing Group Captain Alan Hards when he flew it on 18 January 1946. This led to severe restrictions being placed on flying captured German aircraft at Farnborough. The third bird is also a Do 335 A-12, WNr 240119, RP+UI, and was totally unpainted, although with a very patchy appearance, at the time depicted. Next is the A-03, WNr 240005, VG+PL, in standard camo. The final ship is another two-seater, this time the Do 335 A-12 #114 wearing standard camouflage.

Me 262 Cross-Dressing Stormbirds #3. Five dramatic and unusual schemes for the Sturmvogel grace this set. First is Me 262B-1a W.Nr 110639, named "Willie" of Watson’s Whizzers with US markings painted over the original Luftwaffe marks and numbered 555. This aircraft was repainted several times and some of the original Luftwaffe markings still show through. The Watson’s Whizzers insignia was painted on the nose. Next is Me 262A-2a W.Nr 500210, Yellow 17, originally form 3./JG 7. We’ve supplied both the original Luftwaffe markings and the hand-painted and highly non-standard RAF markings. In the RAF scheme, the original Luftwaffe markings have been overpainted with a light color. This could be a gray primer, RLM 02, a RAF color, or a custom mixed color–take your pick. Note the factory hand-painted stencils on engine nacelle. The rudder was replaced at some point after the photo of the aircraft in Luftwaffe markings was taken. Me 262A-2a W.Nr 110007 Yellow 5, originally of 11./ JG 7, is supplied with both Luftwaffe and RAF markings of a type completely different from Yellow 17. The original Luftwaffe markings have been over painted with a dark color. this could be fresh RLM 83, RLM 70, RLM 71, or possibly RAF Dark Green. This jet was surrendered to British troops at Fassberg in May of 1945 by its pilot Uffz. Anton Schöppler. Yes, we know that the Group bar should have been Yellow to indicate the Staffel, but that wasn’t the case with this particular aircraft. We have no idea why the bar was painted black. The final bird is Me 262A-1a/U3 with remarkable "squiggle" camouflage. This recce Stormbird was first painted as "Marge" by the 54th Air Disarmament Squadron. Later it was named "Lady Jess IV" and flown by Capt. Kenneth Dalstrom of the Watson’s Whizzers. Once in the U.S., the aircraft was transferred to the U.S. Navy where it later crashed. My good friend CAPT Pliny Holt. USN, flew this jet after the end of the war, and was not the pilot when it crashed. Color photos of other U3 aircraft show this meandering camouflage was painted using RLM 70 and 71 over either 65 or 76. This was to use up existing bomber paint stocks.

Luftwaffe Over Czech Territory #4 Bf 109Gs. More remarkable 109 schemes adorn this set. First is Bf 109G-10, JG 300, Yellow 7, based at Praha-Kbely with the fuselage overpainted in a very dark, cloudy color which could have been RLM 81 & 83. Next is Bf 109G-14 from an unknown unit, White 33. This bird had the top 2/3 of the aft fuselage overpainted in a light color that might have been RLM 02 and sprayed but sharp-edged mottles over the RLM 76 on the fuselage. Third is Bf 109G-10, KG(J) 54, with a very large and crude White 4 painted ahead of the fuselage cross. The final bird is the truly amazingly camouflaged Bf 109G-6, KG(J) 54, Black 29 Bar, at Pizen in May 1945. The fuselage camouflage began as the standard 74/75, then (probably) 83 was added along with hard-edges spots of either 02 or 76 over that. VERY eye-catching!

Ar 234C Blitz Bombers. As an extremely late war aircraft, legitimate and interesting schemes for the Ar 234C are extremely limited. As the result, this set includes both photo-documented aircraft and some fun "Luftwaffe ’46" might-have-been schemes. First is Ar 234C-3 (actual scheme), W.Nr.250001, Prague-Rusin in the standard camo scheme. Next is Ar 234C-3 (actual scheme), W.Nr.250006, München-Riem, also in the standard scheme, and Ar 234C-3 (actual scheme), W.Nr.250012, Prague-Rusin, also wearing standard camouflage. The "Luftwaffe ’46" schemes, which are frankly much more fun, are an Ar 234C-3, KG 51, in RLM 84 over a late-war pale green underside. For the truly adventurous we offer an Ar 234C-3 of KG 30 in a desert scheme of RLM 79 over RLM 78. The final fun jet is an Ar 234C-3 of KG 3 in a standard camo scheme with a whitewash winter camo applied in spots on top.

Bf 109 Great Gustavs. Three extremely famous Gustavs grace this set, which provides absolutely accurate markings for each. First is Bf 109G-6, Yellow 1 + ~, Lt. Erich Hartmann, 9./JG 52, Novosaporovyi, Russia, October 1943. Note the legendary "Karaya" heart under the cockpit and the yellow fuselage ID band that only goes around the bottom half of the fuselage. Also note the unusual demarcations lines on the undercowl yellow ID panel. Hartmann had "only" 120 kills at the time this ship was photographed. Hptm Anton Hackl’s Bf 109G-6, Black Double Chevron + I, Stab III./JG 11, Oldenburg, Germany, February 1944, comes next. Note the all-white fin and rudder, with 132 kills displayed on his scoreboard. Finally comes Major Hermann Graf’s famous tulip-nosed Bf 109G-6, Green 1, JGr. 50, Wiesbaden-Eberheim, Germany, 1943. Another bird with an all-white fin and rudder, Graf’s scoreboard shows 205 kills here.

He 111 Pedros in Spain #3. This set includes two birds that flew combat in the Spanish Civil War. The first is 25•15, with the very famous "Scotty dog" insignia on its fin. It also carried the "Pedro 15" name painted on the nose (only the first 15 or 16 He 111s actually had the name painted on them) as well as the unusual name "Holzauge" (translates as "wooden eye!") painted aft of the cockpit canopy. The second bird is Pedro 12, also with the name painted on the nose. It was serialed 25•12, and had a four-leaf clover painted on its fin. The Spanish Nationalist fuselage insignia (black dot) was overpainted with a diving eagle carrying a large bomb.

Fw 190 Vicious Wulfs #1. You have the choice of five different Butcher Birds with this set. First is Fw 190A-5/U8, White 6, Uffz. Werner Öhme, 1./SKG 10, Poix, June 19, 1943. This ship was heavily oversprayed with black paint on the lighter toned areas, including the entire undersides. Next is Fw 190A-5, Black 4+<, 10.(Jabo)/JG 54, France, Early 1943. As with the previous plane, this was a Jabo (fighter-bomber). Large personal nose art was prominently displayed on Fw 190A-4, White 10, Hptm. Wolfgang Kosse, Staffelkapitän, 1.JG 5, Norway, October 1942. Kosse’s artwork featured a British monkey wearing a top hat getting his butt chewed up by a spinning saw blade. Another black-overpainted night intruder is Fw 190A-4/U8, Red 9, Uffz. Heinz Erhardt, ./SKG 10, May 20, 1943. The final subject is Fw 190A-2, Black He-+-, Ofw. Bruno Hegenauer, Staffelkapitän, Stab/JG 26, France, 1942. This bird was remarkable for including the first two letters of Hegenauer’s name ("He") as part of what appeared to be the official tactical markings.

Early Messerschmitt Bf 109s #1. There’s just something about those late-’30s monoplane fighters that conveys the feeling of great technological power emerging from the early childhood of aviation. The first two subjects in this set are extremely famous Spanish Civil War combatants. First is the Bf 109 D-1, 6-79, flown by Hptm Werner Moelders, Staffelkapitaen 3.J/88, Legion Condor, November, 1938. This is famous "Luchs" (lynx) bird with the colorful Mickey Maus (Mickey Mouse) character painted aft of the cockpit and displaying his first three aerial kill markings. The second is the Bf 109 B-2, 6-30, flown by Uffz Wilhelm Staege, 2.J/88, Legion Condor, Alar d’ el Rey, August, 1937. When you carefully study photos of Legion Condor 109s you notice the markings were hand-painted on each aircraft, meaning they are different (and often very different) from plane to plane. Look at the rudder crosses on the Moelders and Staenge ships. You can see they have different strokes (line width) and the top arm crossed the rudder outline in different places. This set provides markings specifically matched to each individual plane. The final subject is a famous immediate pre-war Luftwaffe machine with special markings for the invasion of Czechoslovakia. It is Bf 109 D-1, White 3, flown by Lt Hermann Reifferscheidt, 1./JG 131, March, 1939.

Bf 109 Early Messerschmitts #3. Four extremely famous early birds grace this set. First is Bf 109 D-1, Yellow 1, 3./JG 21, Gutenfeld, East Prussia, September, 1939, during the Polish campaign and the subject of many German propaganda photos from that period. Next is Bf 109 D-1, Red 11, 2./JG 71, Fürstenfeldbruck, August, 1939. This is another machine from the Polish campaign that appeared frequently in propaganda photos. The weeping raven unit insignia referred to British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, who often carried an umbrella. This insignia was later adopted by II./JG 51. Note the camouflage patterns actually applied to Yellow 1 and Red 11 differed greatly from the "official" pattern for the early 109s. Truly striking is Bf 109 D-1, Yellow 5, 2./JGr 176, Gablingen, August 1939. The huge red/white sharkmouth and yellow spinner are impossible to miss, and our decal exactly matches the photos of this bird. The final subject is the very early Spanish Civil War Bf 109 B-1, 6-3, 2.J/88, Legion Condor, Herrera de Pisuerga, October, 1937. As with all Condor Legion 109s, the top hat insignia here was hand painted and differed greatly from every other ship.

The fuselage stripe was probably yellow and the bird had a non-blown canopy. Next is Fw 190 D-9, Black Bar + Bar, W.Nr. 211929, Stab/JG 6, Reichenberg, May 1945. This was a blown-canopy ship, and featured brown overspray on the upper fuselage and tail. The third Dora is Fw 190 D-9, Brown 9 + Bar, W.Nr. 210xxx, 7./JG 26, Nordhorn-Klausheide, Feb. 1945. The black/white RV band and yellow rudder and under cowl add color to the noteworthy markings. The final ship is Fw 190 D-9, Brown 2, W.Nr. 210222, 7./JG 26, Schleswig, May 1945.
