    Hello everyone,

    I am looking for 1/32 decals for Herbert Maxis' aircraft, a BF-109G-14AS that was shot down by US troops during a low level attack. A interesting although tragic story. I can't seem to find his markings in 1/32. I have seen illustrations and photos of this aircraft published in many magazines and books and I find it strange that markings for his aircraft are not available. Could be a result of the sub-type of 109 he flew. If anyone knows where I might find his marking in 1/32 please let me know. Any help very much appreciated.

    Andy has it right, masks only, no decals at all so far!

    This aircraft is now considered to be painted in 74/75/76 Greys...

    Hi everyone,
    Thanks for your help! I have not used masks before but Maxis' markings should be a good starting point for using masks. Thanks Wayne for the info on the most current camo for this aircraft. Any illustrations?

    Masks can do an impressive job and are worth a try. I used masks once on a 1/48 Spitfire and was impressed:

    Thanks everybody for your input. Nice collection of reference photos. I also appreciate example of masks. The end product looks great. Looking forward to giving them a go. I also located a profile of Maxis' aircraft in the greys at Anders H. Profile Paint Shop. Again thanks to everybody for their assistance.
