    I just bought a 1/48 109F off ebay, the decals were no good the seller included a hasegawa sheet instead.

    Can solmeone tell me if the sheet has the correct markings for Molder's 109?

    I believe it has, it has the hawk head and the correct chevron but I'm not 100% sure.

    You'll need to closely study the pics which Chris (Njaco) posted, as the winkel (chevron) was similar, but not the same, on the two 'F's he flew. See also my thread on his '109F in the current Group Build.

    The Chevron/triangle marking from many angles looks like what is printed on the decal sheet but in reality was slightly elongated as the side view below shows.

    There are in fact a minimum of 3 Chevron Triangle variations to Molders 109F's

    As it turns out, I just picked up a hasegawa BF 109F off ebay, and low and behold, it had the same exact decal sheet! Those are the markings for molders, for his plane in august of 1941.

    So for the aces build I will make the hasegawa kit a Molders, and the airfix one a marseille!

    Still good choices, there is another Molders 109 Kit by Hasegawa which is for his earlier mount if you can find it.

    I was lucky to pluck that little guy at a cheap price, whenever 'hasegawa' turns up on ebay buyers swarm like sharks for blood!
