First Look

Empire City Decals is a relative newcomer to the decal market and have now released their first screen-printed (standard) waterslide decal set in 1/72 and 1/48. In this release, we have a set of four Bf 109s as they appeared in Hungarian service during their Luftwaffe support operations in the east during late 1943 and 1944.

  • Bf 109G-6, Black 66, 5/2 Fighter Sqn, Lalinovka, Russia, 1944
  • Bf 109G-6, Blue 4, 102/2 Fighter Sqn, Munkacs, Hungary, 1944
  • Bf 109G-6, W-1+71, 101/2 Fighter Sqn, Veszprem, Hungary, 1944
  • Bf 109F-4/B, V-+07, 1/1 Fighter Sqn, Rossosh, Russia, 1943

These decals are printed sharp, clear, and in perfect register. These are printed by AviPrint and I am very pleased with the quality of these markings.

These will provide some interesting subjects for your favorite 1/48 Bf 109F or Bf 109G-6 kits. These decals are also available in 1/72 scale.
