Yesterday was a fair Autumn day at home, posing a good occasion to rig up an outdoor studio for model shooting. Not least to photograph my recently finished 1/48 scale Tamiya Dewoitine D.520 on which I’d been working for the larger part of the year.
A presentation feature on this model is forthcoming, but here’s an appetizer. At the end of my photo session I wanted to try the idea of putting together the French fighter and my previously finished Tamiya Bf 109E. This seemed only logical as both have been finished in the marking of the 1940 invasion of France.
I very much like how these two contemporaries look together!
We’re all accustomed to Bf 109 being compared with the Spitfire; I think that this excercise provides an interesting different perspective. Makes you think how strikingly similar the design prerequisites had been for these two aircraft, yet how very different they were.
I thought this was cool. Hope you like it, too!
