First Look

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 provides a glimpse at the aircraft and crews of JG 54 along with color profiles and decals for selected subjects.

JG 54 JG 54

The subjects presented here include:

  • Bf 109G-2, Blue 5, 7./JG 54, Smolensk, Russia, winter 1942/43
  • Fw 190A-5, W.Nr.01501501, White 4, 1./JG 54, Russia, summer 1943
  • Bü 131D-2, W.Nr.1683, KG+GB, 2./JG 54, Krasnogvardeysk, Russia, March 1942
  • Bf 109F-2, White 9, 4./JG 54, August 1941

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.
