Another one I never built before. I thought that I would give the Academy kit a try when they had the desirable markings option in the kit.
|It is a plane from the "Papageistaffel". They protected the Me 262's during take-off and landing and they had the undersides of the plane painted in red and white to be visible to their own antiaircraft artillery.|
|This is what I have been told and it was the red and white that made me build one. I am not to fond of the long nosed 190's.|
|I have read many bad things of the Academy decals, but these was very good.|
