    As the title suggests, I am wondering if there is a decal set available that has decals for both of Zveda's BF109's in 1/48 scale.
    I am not particuarly fussy about the unit to be represented east or west front would be fine.

    Couldn't find anything for F-2/4 specific, but a company called Peddinghaus makes a crap load of unit markings. Find a profile of the aircraft you want to model, paint, add markings. A sample....

    I can't say anything about the quality of the decals as I have never heard of anyone using them.

    Geo,

    Interesting. I have a set of peddinghaus decals for armour kits and I have used them and they are good. Seems like the majority of JG symbols are represented. It would be nice to get one set that I could use for both or for instance a set of F-4 decals which could be used on the F2. i.e. a set of decals for Trautloft's F2 but could be used on the F4 if needed and would be historically accurate.

    All of these decals posted by me above are both for the F-2 and the F-4.

    Wurger,

    Thanks for the great information. This is exactly what I needed. I found decal set 48133 for a mere $3.99. That's like a third of the price I have seen it everywhere else. A good deal. I like the Eagle Cal decals too but they are quite pricey.

    Sounds good. But if the decal sheet was quite old I would suggest applying a gloss clear coat overall on the sheet before you would start cutting , soaking and sticking markings to the model.
