Revell 1/32 Me109K-4

Here is a recent build of mine, hope you like it.
I bought it from a chap in our club, and it came with a set of Aeromaster decals, so I added an Eduard etch cockpit set to it, which didn’t work out very well, as the console fell to bits on me…….maybe its just me……..!! Anyway, I bought an Eagle Parts resin cockpit, which was exquisite, and I used Airscale console decals for the dials, which as you can see, enhance the cockpit significantly. It takes quite a lot of fettling to get the completed cockpit to fit, and I didn,t quite get it perfect, but not so much as you,d see unless you looked really closely!!
It was under shaded with black, and sprayed with Mr Color paints. Like my recent 109E4 post, I followed a similar process for painting the camo. I,m not sure if it is accurate, but I like the look of the finished article.
I replaced the undercarriage with SAC metal legs, as i do with all my models. They are sometimes less detailed than the parts they replace, but as my models ravel to shows, and metal legs reduce breakages, then its a price I,m prepared to pay.
Decals are from the Aeromaster sheet, they settled down very well with setting solution, and finish the model well. It now sits in partnership on the shelf with my 109E4.
Enjoy, and keep up the excellent modelling!!!
