  1. Hello everyone, time to build this 109 up, going to represent this one: Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6/Late (G-14) "Gustav" "Double Chevron" II./JG 3 "Udet" Schiphol, Netherlands, November 1943 Major Kurt-Werner Brändle (19 January 1912 – 3 November 1943) was a German Luftwaffe military aviator during World War II, a fighter ace credited with 180 enemy aircraft shot down in over 700 combat missions. The majority of his victories - 155 - were claimed over the Eastern Front. he was killed in action west of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Following an attack by a group of Martin B-26 Marauders on Schiphol airfield, II. Gruppe scrambled to counter the attack. He was shot down in this aircraft - Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6 (Werknummer 26058) by Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) Spitfires under the command of Wing Commander Lloyd Chadburn. His body later washed ashore near Zandvoort on 30 December 1943. Brändle was 31 years old I'm using Hasegawa's fuselage since the dihedral angle is a bit low so I donated the Revell wings and after some cirugy for the landing gears finally it worked, Cockpit is almost done, needs some touches up here and there, aires resin with Airscale instrument decals were used, fuselage rivets are also done although not showing in all these pics yet, an Erla model wearing their usual factory camo with sawteeth on the wings and round mottling on the fuselage, also looks like it has been extra mottled in the field.
  2. here are some examples of other polywood 109 examples, they also show that distinctive green protective undercoat paint and dark magenta stains, I'm guessing it is the glue used
  3. Hi everyone, wanted to share these pictures from a polywood tail pieces from a Me109 G10/U4 W. Nr. 611008 that I recently acquired. it crashed near Schoenberg due to flak fire, they are in great condition and show RLM 74/75/76.
  4. thanks Falcon, I agree she looks better in flight where it belongs, cheers!
  5. finally got some time to work on her, almost done now! cheers
  6. Hi man, the rivets are wrongly represented in the Meng's kit, especially on the wings, so you also transferred wrongly copying them on the Hasewaga kit, also ww2 Mustangs had their wing rivets puttied and smoothed for better airflow performance, you will find all the information and documents here if you are looking for historical accurate reference: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235029538-missouri-armada-p-51d-mustang-documents-and-partial-scratch-from-the-tamiya-148-kit/& cheers Antonio
  7. Thanks everyone for the kind words, Mr. Happy it is the kit's IP but I positioned the instruments dials forward as the intrunctions recomend, I used Barracudas's cockpit placards decals, wonderfull stuff! I sprayed some Alclad II lacquer duraluminium, on a black acrylic base, some retouch and sandidng is need, not easy to achieve NMF but at least the built is moving forward, cheers!
