Revell's 1/32 Bf 109 G-10 Erla is available online from Squadron.com for only $23.96!
This is 1/32 Revell Messerschmitt Bf 109G 10 Erla finished with the markings of “Green 7” from 11./JG300. Prague-Kbely in May 1945.
New Revell's Erla built G-10 is a nice kit but it needs some correction and modification.
Construction started from the cockpit as usual. I have used Aires cockpit set .Components painted to RLM 66 . The fuel line that runs along the starboard sidewall is provided as a clear part by Revell and it is using in Aires set.
Due to lack of detail on the air scoops, I decided to replace them with Barracudacast cooling scoops.
Other modification and corrections are:
Reinforcement strips on the surface of the wings and horizontal tails are deleted.
Barracudacast Oil Cooler Fairing
Moving surfaces (ailerons and elevators) are replaced by the corrected parts from Alley cat set due to overdone large disks on the surface
Eduard Brassin undercarriage leg set
Barracudacast Bf 109G-10 and K-4 Prop and Spinner
Barracudacast Bf 109G-10 and Bf 109K-4 Main wheels
Painting made with Gunze Sangyo acrylics. Upper surfaces painted to RLM83 except for the engine cowling. Engine cowling painted to RLM75/RLM74/RLM76.
Lower surfaces painted natural metal color by using Alclad metalizers.
Decals are from Barracuda decals BC32145 Erla Bf 109 G-10s part 2.
Thanks to Anders Hjortsberg for his help on camouflage color.
