    Hope you guys can help.

    I have been searching on the internet for decals for a BF110 D-3 in 1/48. ( nothing wrong with the decals that came with the model )

    I was wondering if you guys can help me. Its only that i want to do a Sand rlm 79, 79a coloured top side and light blue rlm65 model.
    Something like this one.

    found a pic with the decals that came with the model. This is what it will turn into when i get round to it. ( with any luck )

    Which actually decals do you want Keith? If they're not available, it might be easier to make them.

    And there are a couple of companies that will custom make a set but I'm not sure what kind of money were talking about.

    Thanks Terry
    Will stick with the boxed decals as i don't have a printer. Also just reading how to do home made decals gives me a head ache.

    Thanks for the pics Wojtek
    I found some pics of a BF110 D-3 that have with the decals that came with the model.
    The paint colours that came with the model says RLM 71/02/65
    The scheme i wanted to do was RLM79/65.

    I will be doing it in Iraqi colours.

    I understand. But wouldn't it be better to paint the model with a camo scheme of one of these LW Bf110s used in the North Africa?
