These beautiful decals from Japan look very much like one of the top
line American brands, Eagle Cal or Cutting Edge. The quality and
format is up to the standard of the best available.
72-001 - Focke-Wulf Fw 190s
Lifelike Decals 72-001 covers four aircraft, a Focke-Wulf Fw
190A-3 and a Fw 190A-7 plus two Dora 9s:
A/C #1: A Focke-Wulf Fw 190A3
flown by Erich Rudorffer of 6/JG2, yellow 1 in 1942, is in the
standard three greys with yellow lower cowl and rudder.
A/C #2: An A7 flown by Adolf
Glunz of 5/JG26, white 9 in 1943, in the same colour scheme as
A/C #3: A Fw 190D-9 flown by
Hans-Ulrich Rudel, of Stuka fame, from SG 2, in late war dark
green and grey and spiral spinner.
A/C #4: Another Fw 190D-9 with
the early flat canopy flown by Gunter Rey of 11/JG54 1945,
yellow 11 is also in the late war green and grey.
72-002 - Messerschmitt Bf 109s
Decals 72-002 comprises four Messerschmitt Bf 109s - one E-3, one
F-4, a G-2 and a G-6.
A/C #1: This well known Bf
109E-3, flown by Hans Troitzsch, 6/JG77 in 1939, has artwork on
the rudder of a penguin peeing on the initials WC for water
closet or, more likely, Winston Churchill. This marking was the
emblem of II/JG77.
AC #2: This Bf 109F-4 is a bit of
a rarity in the Luftwaffe, in that it has a three figure A/C No,
white 111, flown by Helmut Mertens of 1/JG3 in 1943, in the
standard three greys scheme with yellow lower cowl, wing tips
and fuselage band.
A/C #3: A Bf 109G-2 Kannonboot,
this A/C was flown by Wolfdieter Huy of 1/JG77 in 1942. The A/C
is painted in an experimental colour scheme of two dark greens
with white spinner and fuselage band.
A/C #4: This G-6 was flown by
Karl Rammelt, the Grupen Kommander of II/JG51. The A/C is
depicted in the three greys scheme with yellow lower cowl and
These are two very interesting decal sheets of airraft that are
not commonly depicted and the quality is top of the line. I have no
hesitation whatsoever in recommending these to all Luftwaffe fans.
