Good to see Balfanz being remembered too,he's less well known than some of JG 53's illustrious Gruppenkommandeure. He had nine victories when he was lost,relatively early in the war,on 24/6/41.
I think that picture is the one I have on page 66 of "Jagdgeschwader 53, A History of the Pik As Geschwader" by J.Prien. It was taken at Kirchberg in the autumn of 1939.
It's a very interesting scheme you've picked there.
Look forwards to seeing what you get out of it.
Unfortunately i couldnt get the decal sheet so i think ill be painting the pik-as and most of the other decals by hand....no problem.
Thanks for looking, dan.
