Dragon 1/32 Me109-E4
January 9, 2015 in Aviation
My latest creation. This is an incredible kit, which I have built pretty much OOB. The box is crammed with parts and quite a few spares, which mainly refer to the engine for Dragons Bf110 in the same scale. Levels of detail and engineering are more than equal to any equivalent Tamiya kit in this scale, and for only about half the price.
I really enjoyed this build, it is quite complex and demands attention to detail, but you are well rewarded with a very detailed engine, ammo bins, armament, cockpit and wheel wells. The only replacements I made to OOB was to use Airscale cockpit dial decals, and SAC metal legs, which i do on all my models, just because they travel to shows, and need to be just that bit more robust to prevent breakage.
All painting is done in Gunze Mr Colour acrylics, decals went on very well, and the whole model is weathered with oil washes and paints. I probably spent about 30 hours on it in total, most of which was in completing the internals. A highly recommended kit! Enjoy!
