January 22, 2013 · in Aviation · · 6 · 4.7K

A small addition to the "Attack of 109's" .This is Messerschmitt Bf-109 G4 in the markings of “Black 1 “ from JG 53 in Sicily .This machine was flown by Oblt. Franz Schiess in 1943.
The cockpit modified by MDC (Model Design Construction) Bf-109 G2-G4 set (#32008). The dials on the instrument panels are from the decal sheet of MDC set.
The second modification is for the spinner. I replaced the kit part with EagleParts #20-32 corrected spinner.
The painting was done with Gunze Sangyo acrylics by referring to EagleCal decal sheet . The paint scheme is ; RLM 79 with Dark green for upper surfaces and RLM78 for lower surfaces. .
The last modification is for the tropical filter and the exhausts.
Tropical filter is from MDC's #32011 )
Finally I replaced the exhausts with Quickboost parts (#32010)
The decals are from EagleCals EC#48 Bf-109 G-4s set.

Happy Modelling

  1. A"10" again! Another immaculate build from Tolga. I'm definately building a 109 NEXT..:)

  2. A "small addition", you say...? Now THAT right there is an outstanding build AND photography, Tolga. That's a nice presentation and an outstanding rendition of a -109! Magnificent attention to detail and finish (and it shows up really well to the viewer). I'd give it another 10, but I can't. Nice work - all around.

  3. Very nice work, Tolga. Your attention to detail is superb. Everything looks "just right."

  4. Nice 109, I like the scheme, nice mix of colors there that adds a lot of interest and looks different than so many other 109's. Very nice variation in the coloring also, just and excellent looking model!
