“Gustavo!” – Italian for Gustav…
This is the Hasegawa Bf109G-6 in 1/48 scale, depicted in RSI markings of the famous “Diavoli Rosso” (Red Devils) squadriglia. This Boxing from Hasegawa had two options, both from the same unit, Yellow 7 and yellow 8.
The factory applied German markings I painted out in RLM02, top and bottom, even placing a small diamond over the tail fin swastika position. Note how far inboard the Cross position on the upper wing is compared to the RSI fasces.
I used making tape for the seat belts and built the kit largely OOB.
