It has often been written that the Luftwaffe was absent from the Normandy's skies. Nothing could be so wrong. The excellent book by JB Frappé, althought in French, proves that against overwhelming forces the German airmen fought well and died so. The picture on the cover of that book , and some pics in it, were the inspirations for my model and I have tried my best to duplicate a Bf 109 G6 from the II/JG3 taking of from a base around Evreux to go on a bombing mission on the landing beaches. As there are no markings for that particular plane I had to do with my own masks and the white filet around the chevron , bar and number one were nightmares to do right. I took advantage of a light end of winter sun to take the pics. And so it goes, best regards.

Hi Jean,

beautiful! Interesting story and interesting model! It turns out perfect especially I believe that it was a nightmare to do the masking. But it looks more than perfect! 

Cheers 🍻
