Hasegawa / ProModeler 1/32 scale
Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-4

by Oscar Ruf

Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-4


Description

 

This the Hasegawa Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6 in 1/32 scale, reboxed in 2002 by Monogram Pro Modeler with extra parts to depict a G-4 Trop variant: spoked wheels, dust filter, etc. I chose the well known "schwarze 1", the personal mount of Oblt. Fraz "Nawratil" Schiess while he was operating in the skies of Tunisia and Sicily.

 

 

I added some old Eduard photo etched seat belts to the otherwise OOB cockpit, DIY brass tube pitot, Uschi Rig That Thing thread for the HF antenna and syringe tubes for the kanonenboot MG151 guns under each wing.

 

 

Also a new resin tropical filter and engine exhaust stacks by MDC, and some copper filament to replicate the string of the hood holder.

 

 

The model was painted with ModelMaster enamels (RLM 78/79 and 80 for the green) and national emblems were masked and painted with the exception of the hakenkreuz.

 

 

The decals performed flawlessly despite being 20 years old and they reacted extraordinary well to Mr Mark Sol and Setter solutions.

Final effects were done with washes, oils and chalk pastels.

A very enjoyable project, indeed!
