    Without searching through all the decals lists from the various outlets Keith, I couldn't say if there are definitely decals for that specific aircraft, but there will be decals for the JG2 and 'Staffelhund' badges, and also the White 7, although possibly on different sheets. The aircraft is from I/JG2, and the biggest problem might be finding the narrow, early war fuselage crosses. I used some on a 1/32nd scale 109E4 built years ago, but I can't remember where they came from! (probably the spare decals file!)
    Before you go searching through lists at Hannant's or elsewhere, I'd suggest checking the web-site for Peddinghaus Decals, specialists in Luftwaffe markings. Also, check references for the position of the swastika. It's not shown on your profile, probably for the usual reasons, but it might have been painted across the fin and rudder. I'll have a look at my JG2 references, and see if I can find a pic of the aircraft, plus details etc.

    Thanks guys! I usually google up on a kit before getting it - just write the aircraft name and scale, and the word 'review'...has saved me from an expensive mistake a few times already, aswell as introducing me to a new or better kit in a few cases!

    Nice work Daniel and Evan, and a useful review - think I will be getting the kit eventually, makes a reasonable, and cheaper alternative to the Eduard kits.

    Wasn't the old Matchbox kit a Richtofen bird?
    I've got the box-art in my minds-eye but can't quite remember if it's what Ellis is looking for

    I've still got the old Matchbox kit Colin, built and painted, or should I say re-painted, twice!
    The markings supplied were supposedly for one of Galland's machines, although the decals were for after it went to a training unit, retaining Galland's kill markings and winkel, which is not shown in the instructions. The alternative was, I think, a Rumanian unit or something similar. If Revell were to re-issue that kit, it would be a good one to get. OK, it's the usual old Matchbox 'chunky' look in some parts, and the opening section of the canopy needs attention, or replacing (I scratch-built mine), but overall the kit is accurate, with a heck of a lot of detail, including engine etc.
    I have a feeling that the original Hasegawa kit was from the old Frog moulds.
