1/72 Fine Molds Bf-109F-2

by Magnus Fridsell on January 23, 2013 · in Aviation — 8 Comments

I’m in as well! This is the Fine Molds Bf-109F-2 in the colours of 206-victory ace Hans Philipp from JG 54. A very nice kit that builds easily! Decals are from the old Aeromaster “Luftwaffe Top Guns”-sheet of 1990s vintage. […]

1/48th Tamiya Bf-109E-4, Making a Sheep Rancher Angry

by Walt Babst on January 23, 2013 · in Aviation — 6 Comments

I have posted this elsewhere previously but in the spirit of 109 madness occuring on this site I thought I would post here. This is again the wonderful and enjoyable Tamiya kit. The markings are purely fictional, I just really […]

Copper State 1/48 Sopwith 5F1 Dolphin

by Merrill Anderson on January 22, 2013 · in Aviation — 4 Comments

The Dolphin is the ‘Rodney Dangerfield’ of Sopwiths. Not famous like the Camel, or even the Snipe, Triplane of Pup, it was ‘different’.It was fast (131 mph) and agile, but it had ‘backstaggered’ wings, the idea was to give the […]

Attack of the 109s Pt. 8: the last 109, the Buchon – conversion for Hasegawa 1/32 kit

by Tom Cleaver on January 22, 2013 · in Aviation — 1 Comment

This is the Greymatter Figures conversion for the Hasegawa Bf-109G-4 kit, to create the HA-1112-M1L, the Spanish 109 with Merlin engine. This is an easy conversion, changing the nose and providing wing fences, 20mm wing cannon and Oerlikon rockets and […]

Attack of the 109s Pt. 7: The Avia S-199 1/32 conversion of Hasegawa kit

by Tom Cleaver on January 22, 2013 · in Aviation — 1 Comment

The Czechs called it “Melec” (the mule), the Israelis called it the “Shakeen,” (knife). It was nearly the last of the line. As bad a fighter as it might have been, its arrival in Israel changed history. Here’s an account […]

Attack of the 109s, Pt. 6 1/32 Bf-109G-6

by Tom Cleaver on January 22, 2013 · in Aviation

The Hasegawa Bf-109G-6 “kannonen boot”, with Eagle Cals decals to do Heinrich Bartels’ airplane from late 1943, flown in the eastern Mediterranean. Among the pilots assigned to IV Gruppe when it was activated in Greece in May 1943 was Feldwebel […]

Attack of the 109s, Pt. 5: 1/32 Hasegawa BNf-109G-12

by Tom Cleaver on January 22, 2013 · in Aviation — 2 Comments

Here’s the only kit of the 1/32 Bf-109G-12. Back in 2006, my good friend the late Dave Thompson, retired President of the Erie, PA Hell’s Angels, all around nice guy, and lifelong modeler (you should have seen his scratchbuilt 1/32 […]

109 G-14 A/S Hasegawa 1/72

by Merrill Anderson on January 22, 2013 · in Aviation

Keeping with the 109 flurry, here’s my very old ‘one of a kind’ model. It’s the Hasegawa 109 G-14, but modified to the last variant, the A/S (asymetrical) with the DB 605 engine. The changed cowling bulge was sculpted out […]

Me-109/Bf-109 (various)

by Craig Abrahamson on January 22, 2013 · in Aviation — 1 Comment

Although I cannot offer any definitive background on the builds, I can contribute to the “theme”. These are generally all older completions and I had a habit (bad, good or otherwise) of snapping a few photos after each kit was […]

Tamiya 1/72 Messerschmitt Bf 109E-3

by Editor on January 22, 2013 · in Aviation — 3 Comments

Having admired some hundreds of spectacular models here at iModeler, I feel compelled to provide some sort of evidence that Yours Truly also builds some models on his own — well at least occasionally. This is Tamiya’s Messerschmitt Bf 109E […]
