.:Barracuda Studios:. Colorful late Bf-109 & Spitfire Mk. VIII #decals

 Bf 109G-6 and G-14 Part 1
Fresh decals set by <<Barracuda Studios>> was released recently.
This sheet features 7 interesting Gustavs with a wide array of colors and markings. Thoroughly researched by Anders Hjortsberg, who also created the stunning profile artwork, these are the culmination of years of research, and represent the latest thinking in color and markings. This sheet features full color instructions, 2 full sets of stencils and enough national markings to do at least 2 aircraft. 
Contrary to mainstream releases these Barracuda decals accents mainly  interesting camo schemes /and/or machines per subject ONLY, not chosed for example by ~famous~ aces, repetitively included again and again...  
/try buying some D-9 Doras, _Without_ parrot decals , meh/

The good news? More to come from Barracuda!
P.S. Roy Sutherland, (fyi: the man behind the Barracuda Studios) asked for release Erla Bf-109 in 72 scale answered me:

I'd love to do the Erla decals in 72nd scale, but there is no mainstream kit available of the Erla built 109G-10. When there is, we will certainly be looking at releasing the sheets.
