First Look

KAGERO's "Red Series" offers this gorgeous decal set for three Heinkel He 111Ps of KG 27s:

He 111P He 111P

The examples presented here include:

  • Heinkel He 111P-2, W.Nr. 1417, 1G+FN of 5./KG 27, Seerappen, East Prussia, September 1939
  • Heinkel He 111P-2, 1G+BB of Stab I./KG 27, autumn-winter 1939-1940
  • Heinkel He 111P-2, 1G+DL of 3./KG 27, Münster-Handorf, May 1940

All schemes depict standard RLM 70/71/65-finished machines – with prop spinners providing the only obvious paint variations.

Beautiful color reference art, photos from Thomas Hesse's collection and descriptive text detail the "Blitzkrieg-era" subjects.  CARTOGRAPH decal printing assures quality.  And application instructions complete each set's contents.

KAGERO has proffered pleasing He 111P packages.  Luftwaffe enthusiasts will love these sheets, but the "split" Swastikas will probably prove annoying.


My sincere thanks to Casemate for this review sample!
