First Look

Eduard is a very prolific aftermarket hobby company based in the Czech Republic that produces a wide range of kits and detail sets for the advanced scale modeler. Eduard has extended that production into the decal market and here is one of their latest releases. This provides five marking options for the Bf 109E-4.

MiG-21 MiG-21

These subjects include:

  • Bf 109E-4, Black <<, I./JG 26, Audembert, France, 1940, as flown by CO Hptm. Rolf Pingel
  • Bf 109E-4, Yellow 5+I, 9./JG 3, Desvres, France, 1940, as flown by Hptm. Egon Troha

  • Bf 109E-4, Black <I5, II./JG 54, Adad, Romania, 1941

The instructions provide full views for the placement of these markings and provide sectioned Swastikas (as well as whole Swastikas if you're located in a market where they are not illegal).

You can purchase these decals from a number of online retailers or directly from Eduard Decals.

My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
