1/32 Eduard / Alley cat Messerschmitt Bf-109D-1
This is 1/32 Messerschmitt Bf-109D-1 with the markings of 2./JGr 176 in Gablingen during August 1939.
I have used Eduard Bf-109 E-1 as base kit and converted it to D-1 by using Alley cat conversion set.
Additionnaly I swapped Quickboost pilot seat and Aires wheels
Painting done with Gunze Sangyo acrylics. The scheme is classical RLM70/71 over RLM65 pattern.
I have used old Cutting Edge #32091 decal sheet. But sharkmouth decal has been damaged during installation depending on old age. And the projet stopped for a while.
Later, I discovered DN Models masks and decided to use mask for the sharkmouth figure. DN MODELS produced a great customized mask set for me.Thus the project started again.
