During the winter season, the JG 54 on the Eastern front camouflaged their aircraft in various schemes. White was applied either as an entire over-painting of the upper surface or in the shape of various white patches. This pattern can be used to depict various other aircraft mottled in this way as there was no standard. Use masking tape to create the fuselage band in yellow. Extra vinyl is provided to adapt the shapes provided to suit the subject you are modelling
This set includes only the camouflage pattern. Serial numbers, code letters and other markings are not included. See our website for more.
