    I need some help making a decision! At this point I'm leaning towards von Werra's plane, but I love the snake on the nose of von Hahn's plane. What do you guys think?

    Bf 109E I/JG3, France, Sept 1940. Flown by Hptm Hans von Hahn (Gruppenkommandeur), 34 victories.

    [R] Bf 109E Werknummer 5057, II/JG3, France, Sept 1940. Flown by Hauptmann Franz von Werra, 21 victories.

    Both are E-4s I believe.

    Probably von Werra's, even though most of his claimes were false! If you do this one, not that the spinner was red and white, not black and white, as it appears in the profile.

    Didn't know either of those things Terry! I DID see a profile of a plane painted similarly with a different Werknummer, but with the red and white you mentioned and flown by him.

    Thanks for the input so far guys!

    No sh!t Dan! :lol: Wasn't expecting such a landslide. von Werra's it is. I COULD do both, but I also want to do a Hurri (if I can find one easily) or a Spitfire (which I've already found here).
