Bf 109E-3 in Legion Condor (Spain)

July 15, 2014 in Aviation

My another one model of an aircraft used by Legion Condor during Spanish Civil War – Bf 109E-3 in 1/72 scale. This model is a “light” conversion from Airfix’s 109E-4 – I’ve replaced canopy (vacuformed). Also I’ve used some parts from Eduard’s etched set for Tamiya’s 109E and replaced machine gun barrels with Master Model barrels set for 109E.

Painted with Arcus authentic enamels, Vallejo and Gunze acrylics. Oils were used for fading, pigments for exhausts, wheels.

  1. I love Condor Legion paint schemes! That looks great!

  2. Ooooooh that’s a beauty. That first pic is the perfect angle for this bird. Always liked this scheme on the early ‘Schmitt, yours is gorgeous, had to check the scale to make sure it was ’72.
