Start Verlag has released a limited-edition set of decals to compliment the second issue of their "Luftwaffe Im Focus" book series.

The decals cover five interesting and colourful subjects. These are:

  • Messerschmitt Bf 109G-2, Yellow 10. Winter finish over standard 74/75/76 with personal markings.

  • Messerschmitt Bf 109G-2, Yellow 10, Fw. Döbrich, Finland, Feb 1943. Winter finish over tropical finish of 78/79 upper surfaces.

  • Messerschmitt Bf 110C, U8+AB, CorD I./ZG 26, France, Summer 1940. Finished in 71/02/65 with personal markings.

  • Messerschmitt Bf 109G-14, Blue 8, Ofw Halstrick, blue 8, 6./JG 5, Oct 1944 Stavanger/Norway. Finished in 74/75/76 with personal markings.

  • Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-4, Black 6, Fw Bremer, 5./JG 1, Woensdrecht/NL 1943 . 74/75/76 finish with a large red Tatzelworm on each side of the cowl.



Instructions are accompanied by nice quality colour profiles and a clear placement guide. A reference to the position of photographs in the associated book are also included.

The decals are perfectly printed, in register and featuring thin decal film.

This is a nice debut decal production from Start Verlag, made even more attractive by the availability of reference photos and information in the separately available "Luftwaffe Im Focus Edition 2" book.



Thanks to Start-Verlag  for the review sample

Luftwaffe Im Focus Decals and Edition No. 2 are available online from the Start website
