    Some history
    Jagdverband 44 (JV 44) was a special fighter unit of top German fighter ace pilots in the Luftwaffe during the last months of World War II. The main aircraft used by the unit was the Messerschmitt Me 262 jet fighter. They were known by various nicknames, including "Der Galland-Zirkus" (The Galland Circus).

    The commander of JV 44 was General Adolf Galland (103 victories) the former General der Jagdflieger (General of Fighter pilots) who had recently been sacked from his command by Hermann Göring for relentlessly criticizing the operational policies, strategic doctrine, and tactics mandated by the Luftwaffe High Command. It was hoped by Galland's superiors that his return to combat-flying in a front-line command would result in his death in action! JV 44 was composed of highly experienced pilots chosen from Galland's former staff or otherwise recruited from units which had been disbanded or were being re-equipped. It had relatively few operational planes available for any single sortie and was repeatedly forced to relocate due to the approach of Allied ground forces. At war's end the unit was disbanded and its brief history came to an end.

    Protection squadron - Die Würger-Staffel

    Because of the greater length of runway it required, and the slow acceleration it had at low speeds, the Me 262 was especially vulnerable during take-off and landing. Galland thus established his own protection squadron, the Platzschutzstaffel (Airfield protection squadron), headed by Lieutenant Heinz Sachsenberg, to provide air cover for takeoffs and landings.

    The Platzschutzstaffel flew the long-nosed 'Dora', Fw-190 D-9, or Fw-190 D-11 variant of the well-known Fw 190. These aircraft were painted bright red on their wings' undersurfaces with contrasting white stripes so anti-aircraft batteries could distinguish them from Allied piston-engined aircraft, leading to their humorous postwar nickname of the Papagei Staffel (Parrot squadron). The Staffel was nicknamed "Die Würger-Staffel", a play on the common nickname for the BMW 801 radial-engined original A-version of the Fw 190, which was Würger or Butcher-bird.

    ask your day as I have been looking to do the "RLM99" - RLM 84 v3, which I comment as it was, well I've been experimenting with the colors I recommend the H26 (duck egg green) and Gunze H68 that is the RLM 74 as the color goes with the light I want to do is 4:1, the bargain I have the instructions for the d-9 Hasegawa a1/32 of the ST19 which I use as guidance for the colors, since tamiya and I as who are gallant (bizarro), if we add that I got the d9 of italery also to 1/48 I can make a good comparison of colors between brands.
    I hope it is much better than the zeke.

    Great work Sergio!
    You won't need the parts of the wheel well inserts with the perforations, just the sections with the MGs. Those covers were only fitted to many (not all) A/F/G versions - on the D this area was open, and you could see the rear of the engine if you looked in.

    Evan's right but this is a trade off. If you want to be realistic and leave out these wheel well areas, there's a gaping void that screams for filling. There are after market engine plugs that can be bought but these are pricey.

    Great work on the seatbelts Sergio!
