Bf.109-G Balkenkreuz & Swastika Decal Sets 1:48 Eduard I can't be the only one that has damaged a decal whilst applying it, or been trying to cobble together a set of marking from spares only to find I can't quite find the correct ones. These two sets of decals from Eduard should help out, especially if you have treated yourself to their Bf.109G Overtrees from their website here. Available separately, these decals have been printed in-house one the same bright blue decal paper as they have been using for the majority of their kit decals of late, supplied in a ziplok or self-adhesive bag with a header card to keep them from damage, as well as adding some useful positioning tips in the shape of diagrams. Balkenkreuz (D48027-OBT1) This is the larger of the two sheets, with a choice of cross styles from the range that were applied to this type during its service in late WWII. Printed in black and white, registration, colour density and sharpness are good, with a glossy carrier film cut close around the printing. The crosses without colour in their centre have carrier film in the centre, so you will need to make sure you have a good glossy surface on which to lay them to prevent silvering later. You get eight of the most common type, four of three other types, and two of a more unusual black only inverse crosses, which totals twenty two in all. Swastikas (D48028-OBT1) The smaller sheet of the two contains two types of Swastika, one in black with a white drop-shadow, the other plain black, split eight and four respectively. Again, printing is in black and white, registration, colour density and sharpness are good, with a glossy carrier film cut close around the printing. There is a very slight mark on one of the black Swastikas on my sample, but as it can easily be cut loose with a sharp blade, it isn't worth worrying about. The Swastika is prohibited or at least frowned upon in some territories, so if you live in such an area, this set might possibly be unavailable. Review sample courtesy of
