Barracuda gets in Earla-y with their two new sets of Bf-109G-10 sheets including 14 new schemes!

There are PLENTY of very nice and very well researched colour schemes on BarracudaCals two new sets of decal sheets that are just about to hit the market. We take a look at each of the schemes and some of the sheets today in our preview…

Barracuda Studios two new decal sets in 1/32nd for the new Revell Erla built Bf-109G-10.

A few notes from Roy Sutherland about his two new sets of decal sheets for the Erla built Bf-109G-10’s in 32nd scale.

The Erla Built Bf 109G-10 is not to be confused with a G-10 fitted with a Erla hood. This variant had a completely unique engine cowling arrangement. The new Revell kit, which is a very nice kit and, for the most part, quite accurate, is the first time this variant has been kitted in injection moulded plastic.

Each sheet contains SEVEN varied and interesting schemes for the Erla G-10. Exhaustively research by Anders Hjortsberg with further assistance by other notable 109 experts, these sheets reflect the very latest knowledge on the Erla G-10s.  Anders has produced superbly detailed and accurate profiles, and larger versions can be downloaded from the Barracuda Studios website to assist you in recreating the fascinating camouflage schemes. .Extensive and detailed painting notes highlight a number of interesting points about the finish of these very late war Gustavs. For those wanting to know more, there is a link on the sheets to Ander's blog, where much more in-depth discussions of these aircraft can be found.

Decals are gorgeously printed by Cartograf, and much effort was put into color matching. Each sheet contains all the specific markings for all seven aircraft, along with 2 full stencil suites and two complete sets of national markings and spinner spirals.
