Tamiya's 1/72 scale
Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6

by Brett Green

Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6

Meng's 1/48 scale F-35A Lightning II is available online from Squadron for USD$59.99




Here is Tamiya's brand new 1/72 scale Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6. This is a beautiful kit and a joy to build. As you can see, surface textures are amazing and detail is excellent. 



I substituted the decal straps with an Eduard STEEL harness, and the pitot tube is from fine copper wire, not because I wanted to replace it but the kit part fell off and I could not find it!



I added a short length of stretched sprue for the FuG 25a IFF antenna on the bottom of the fuselage too. Otherwise, the kit was built straight from the box. 



I used AK's new Real Colors range for the first time on this model and I was very impressed. It thins beautifully for fine lines and mottling, coverage is excellent, dries fast and the finish is tough. I used the proprietary AK thinner, and I'm not really sure if it is a lacquer or an acrylic, but I will definitely be using this range again!



Decals are HAD Decals Item No. 72107.

Thanks to Tamiya for the sample.
