Bf 109F-4 (Zvezda 1/72)
August 23, 2015 in Aviation
This is my conversion of Zvezda’s 109F-2 to F-4 easy assemble kit (snap fit). I’ve replaced propeller blades, modified air radiator intake (made it smaller), added additional armor glass windshield and made some other minor changes.

Model was not so easy to build as I’ve expected, but anyway it’s a good kit, especially for beginners.
Painting scheme represents aircraft at Emmen Airfield, spring 1943. Painted with Gunze and Vallejo acrylics, weathered with oils (I make custom washes from an art oils) and pigments. National insignia has painted with masks.
