Thanks for the enlightenment.  Never ceases to amaze me as to how complex the 109G lineage is.   So, are there any other -14/AS decals out there.   I'm not a big fan of the nightfighters, but so far, it looks like the only decal option is "Black 2"?

 

Eagle Cals has a sheet with two JG 300 G-14/AS machines: http://www.eagle-editions.com/eaglecals-81-32-bf-109-g-14-as-and-g-10s.html . In addition, if you do some research, you'll likely be able to find a G-14/AS for which you can cobble together the necessary decals from different sheets. Do note that, apart from the presence or absence of chin bulges, there are also a couple of other things to look out for when building a G-14/AS. Later production machines have the larger Fo 987 oil cooler instead of the Fo 870 that's the standard for earlier G-series. However, a lot of G-14/AS machines do have the smaller Fo 870, so that's one thing to pay attention to. In addition, according to references, a few very late production machines also had the larger main wheels and associated rectangular wing bulges, and some aircraft were also (retro)fitted with the long tail wheel.

 

For the G-6/AS 'Green 5' of Erg.JG 2 (the all-black Mosquito hunter), Start Verlag also offers a dedicated sheet with the markings for this machine in 1/32, 1/48 and 1/72: https://www.luftfahrtverlag-start.com/decals/ (scroll down almost to the bottom of the page).

There are also other options such as the Owl RLM 76 nightfighter, Kagero Oesau full RLM 76 G6/AS or Reschke 74/75/76 one. The famous Croat G14/AS was also released by at least two companies. Last, some so-called G10s in Hasegawa kits were in fact AS planes.
