Messerschmitt Bf-109F-4 in Hungarian Service Vol. II

1:72 SBS Model

SBS Model are a producer of kits, aftermarket parts and decals from Budapest, Hungary. This sheet is the latest in a growing range of high quality decals, covering four different Bf 109 F-4s in Hungarian service. The schemes on offer are all more colourful than the standard Luftwaffe fare, with the winter camourflaged V-07 looking particularly appealing to my eye. The following aircraft are catered for:

  • Red 2, 1/1. vadászszázad, Poltova, early 1943;
  • V-07, 1/1. vadászszázad, Rossoh, January 1943. This was the aircraft flown by the ace Sgt. Dezso Szentgyorgi;
  • V0+30, 1/1. vadászszázad, Ushyn, early summer 1943; and
  • Yellow 7, 1/1. vadászszázad, Poltava, early 1943. This plane was also flown by Sgt. Dezso Szentgyorgi.

Aside from being an interesting collection of schemes, the decals themselves look to be of very good quality. The printing is crisp and sharp, while colours are bold and solid. They look thin and glossy on the sheet, so they should perform well.

Conclusion

 

This interesting sheet has been nicely executed. If you have some of the AZ Models Friedrich in your stash, then this sheet may well tempt you to build one or two Hungarian aircraft with interesting variation in markings. Highly recommended.
