1/32 Bf 109G-6 ERLA "Double Chevron" II./JG 3 "Udet"

Recommended Posts


Hello everyone, time to build  this 109 up, going to represent this one:

Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6/Late) "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.
