  1. no problem, up to you mate 😃 it is written in the NAA documents to paint everything in black to avoid sun reflections in the cockpit, it had a functional reason, cheers
  2. hope it is not too late, the radio rack was black and not IG as instructions kits call for, their call is based wrongly on a modern restored warbird Mustang, here some NAA footage and some unrestored examples
  3. no problem mate, here some more, cheers
  4. I would like to revive this thread 10 years later, I have some interesting pictures of RLM 74 examples. first is an original Farbtonkarte issued in 1941 although 1938 is written in the chart, the 74/75/76 colors are the only ones that have no name, only number, also I acquired some wooden relic pieces from a 109g10 with 74/75/76 camo colors very well preserved, after trying different mixes and paint brands, I found that Tamiya XF-63 to be a very close match to RLM 74, funny the tamiya name is german grey, hope it is interesting to someone, cheers Tamiya XF-63 is a great match to RLM 74 here some bf110 relic which shows RLM74 bf109 cowling and ruder relics with RLM74 I painted my 1/32 109 in these colors
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. thanks Falcon, I agree she looks better in flight where it belongs, cheers!
  9. finally got some time to work on her, almost done now! cheers
