Messerschmitt Me109E-3, ‘White 8′, (Eduard 1:32)

December 19, 2012 · in Aviation · · 6 · 2.2K

Another commission build this time for a client in Germany. The 'White 8' markings are fictitious by request and reflects his interest in online flight simming-'White 8' being his online markings. The kit can be tricky in places and I opted to remove part of the cowling
to expose the very nice DB601 engine set included in the kit.

Airbrushed/masked markings
Engine wiring and plumbing
Added cockpit details
Handmade base and plaque (to display Luftwaffe Eagle)

  1. You're killin' us here, Charles...these builds (including those magnificent Spits) are overwhelming. You are indeed an artisan.

  2. Might be killin' you, CA, but i'm eatin' it up!
    Thanks for the photos of a beautiful build, Charles.

    • Oh, I agree wholeheartedly, they're fantastic builds. I hate him! lol

      • I just now read Mr. Whall's WONDER his models are so good - he builds 'em for a LIVIN'..! Just imagine...having the talent to build such gorgeous replicas AND get paid for doin' it! Some guys have ALL the luck. I applaud you,'re worth every penny. Spectacular craftsmanship. Look forward to seeing more of your work (I may have to start a 'new folder' just for YOUR stuff...inspiration if you will).

        • Thankyou guys for your very kind comments. Craig, I truly wish I was doing this for a living...I still have a day job as head of art at a local secondary school but am working on 'going solo'! 😀

  3. No need for saving, all of Charles' stuff is here:

    Fabulous modeling!
