Specht was Gruppenkommandeur II./JG 11 and his 29th and 30th victories had been achieved over Detmold on 22 Februay 1944 (a P-51 and a B-17). With 15 heavy bombers destroyed he was one of the leading 'bomber killers' in the Defence of the Reich, despite having lost his left eye in December 1939 when flying Bf 110 Zerstörer with ZG 26. See rudder close-up below. Interestingly in his photo caption for Specht's G-5, Prien suggests that the aircraft may have received a mottle of dark green or brown blotches although this variant was essentially designed for high-altitude interception and may even have been finished in overall RLM 76 from the factory, before receiving a rough 75 overspray. Note the 'cigar' shaped auxiliary fuel tank and the Geschwader emblem of JG 11 under the cockpit - the so-called Der Wächter from sculptor - and regime favourite - Arno Breker, which was first seen on the front page of German magazines after the fall of Stalingrad, usually under the title 'Revenge!'
The model build courtesy Jean Barby is the Hasegawa G-10 mated to an MDC conversion set which included a new 'nose' with enlarged prop blades, a new air intake and a deeper radiator bath. Decals are from Superscale.
