Props 1/32 (UPDATED 13.2.2014)

Something in 1/32,
Bf-109 E-7, Schwarze 8""

Because of the recently discovered info on this subject, I decided to resurrect this older post. 
This plane did not belong to Lt. Werner Schroer as described in many publications and is also described by Eduard in their kit's color profile. The fact is 
this aircraft was flown by They Franz of the 2./JG 27. Schroer was in  1st Staffel of JG 27 at the time and 
after he was assigned as Staffelkapitän of 8./JG 27.
The false combination of the plane with W. Schroer originates from early 60's when the picture appeared in Karl Ries' Bilanz am Seitenleitwerk.
 This mistake has-been repeated many times, in references and on decal sheets.

Focke Wulf Fw 190F-8, W.Nr. 930838, formerly of SchG 2, captured in 1945 at Kovin airfield and for a while used operationally by new Yugoslav Air Force
