  1. Looking at pictures of the 2 different sets, they seem 90% the same. There's a box on the forward half of the right sidewall on the G-10 that's not on the F-4. Sanding it off should make them essentially identical. There's also a small box on the lower center of the left F-4 sidewall and wiring going forward that's not on the G-10 sidewall. Should be easy to replicate.
  2. It would be a cool design if you removed the color cup part.
  3. Here's some more conjecture supporting black paint: At the time that III/Jg 54 began receiving 109G-2's, July 1942, they were conducting night fighter sorties during the Battle of the Volkhov, in addition to normal day-fighter missions.
  4. I'm wondering if the spinner was the original RLM 70 and the fuselage was painted with a black or near black.
  5. Why the hell can't they just put all the parts in one damn box and let me decide which to use? Enough of this "build it this way/as this variant" crap!
  6. Just got my first shot today. The most painful part was hearing the D-grade disco music being played in the waiting area.
  7. It's amazing how different the color looks between the three pictures.
  8. It seems that with Jg 52 109G-2's the only had the scoops on the right side under the windscreen. The left sides were flat in that area.
  9. If you go that route, you will need to source a 109G canopy with the thicker frames. That kit comes with the thin framed canopy of the F model. Kinda surprising they made the right clear sprue when the main plastic is a G-2. Also, which scheme are you planning? There are cooling vents on some G models just under the windscreen. The Hasegawa kit gives you alternate windscreen pieces with these scoops.
  10. The main visual difference will be the wider main wheels with the corresponding bumps on the wing tops and the fixed tail wheel on the G-4. To make a G-2 you need to remove the bumps and open the lower fuselage for the retractable tail wheel.
  11. Yes. The missile pylons are almost done. Just need to fill some seams with putty. Not bad looking for the scale. I assembled the wings and attached the upper and lower fuselage halves with the beaver tail - glove vanes are glues closed. I am waiting on my Sprue Brothers order for some paints and Miliput. Then I can paint the cockpit and crew figures. Also, I can begin mounting the intake trunks with the internal supports for the stand. I will have pics in the coming days.
  12. There's a picture of the front of AJ200 in the '79-'80 cruise book that seems to be overall Gull Gray. No specific date given though. https://www.navysite.de/cruisebooks/cvn68-80/318.htm
