    Hi all,

    I am building a BF109G-10, yellow 2, of a unit called KG(J) 27, which I cannot find any information on.

    Does anybody have info on this unit,where it was based etc, or perhaps photos of their Aircraft or pilots?

    Thank you so much!

    Redesignated KG (J) 27 on 23.11.44.

    Looks like the usual desperate attempt to turn bomber pilots into fighter pilots...
