For years now, Kagero has been publishing a wide variety of aircraft monographs and in many of these titles the authors provide an impressive selection of color profiles and even decals for selected profiles. These decals usually covered subjects that were largely overlooked by most other decal companies. Here we have Kagero's latest release in the TopColors series covering part one of Bf 109s over the Mediterranean.
The subjects presented here include:
- Bf 109E-7/N, W.Nr.4139, White 11, 7./JG 26, Ain-el-Gazala AB, Libya, 1941
- Bf 109F-4/Trop, W.Nr. unknown, Stab II./JG 27, Derna, Libya, 1941
- Bf 109F-4/Trop, W.Nr.8665, Stab II./JG 3, Sicily, Italy, 1942
- Bf 109F-4/Z, W.Nr.13060, Yellow 2, 3./JG 77, Comiso, Italy, 1942
- Bf 109G-2/Trop, W.Nr. unknown, Black 7, 2./ JG 77, Tunisia, 1943
- Bf 109G-2/R2 Trop, W.Nr. unknown, Black 19, 2.(H)/14, La Marsa, Tunisia, 1943
- Bf 109G-6, W.Nr. unknown, Yellow 13, 9./JG 53, Italy, 1943
- Bf 109G-6/Trop, W.Nr. unknown, Black 8, 5./JG 27, Trapani, Italy, 1943
As with other Kagero monographs, these decals are accompanied by large color profiles presented in all four views (top, bottom, left and right sides) to provide good painting and decal placement instructions.
If you're looking for some nice subjects that will be different than other subjects on the contest table, here are four good choices.
