    Well, to make a long story, I'd bought this Ventura set, V3251, in 1/32 from Aviation Megastore, until that I saw that they've refunded the money for it...

    So, if any of you see this bird, or more correctly the decals for it in 1/32, Messerschmitt Bf 109G-14/AS,
    Oblt. Ernst Scheufele, Staffelkapitan 14/JG 4, Finsterwalde Germany, October 1944...

    It'd tremendously appreciated, if you gave us a howler...

    Will do Jan but something looks very wrong with the lines of that model.

    Seems the picture was shortened or there's lens distortion but maybe that's just me.

    Found a close-up photo showing the aircraft from the "13" forward and the name below the cockpit is a little too far forward. The model is also lacking a mast behind the cockpit. Holler and I'll send you the photo.

    Being the OLD Revell kit i'm not surprised it looks a bit off...

    That looks like a Claes Sundin profile which is why I'll accept the fuel triangle appearing to be over the code number :) I guess the triangle was masked when the number was applied.
    Cheers

    I think the odd appearance of the tail is caused by the rudder that is attached higher than is should have been. I have used the Photoshop for cutting out of the rudder and moving it a little bit down. The difference is noticeable although it is still looking a little bit incorrect methinks.
