1/48 Zvezda Bf-109F-2

July 17, 2013 · in Aviation · · 14 · 3K

The Bf-109F-2, using Lifelike Decals to do the airplane flown by Hans Phillip as 4 Staffel Kapitaen of II/JG 54 in 1941. Always liked the "lizard scheme" of camouflage JG 54 created.

Full review today over at Modeling Madness. The kit really is the best Bf-109F in 1/48 (the Hasegawa 1/32 Bf-109f being the all-time champ in that scale).

  1. beautiful and elaborate scheme tom

  2. Superior finish work, Tom.

  3. Wow Tom! You hit a home run there bud. I like it a lot. Believe it or not, I haven't a single 109 in the display. Man, I gotta get busy...:)

  4. Really nice camo work. Once you get going with a 109, one just isn't enough!

    • Yeah, that's the thing with the darned things - there's a ton of markings and schemes, and if you like painting and decaling (which I do) you're a s****r for them.

  5. Another really good job, this month seems to 109 month, last month was 190!

    Great 109!

  7. Excellent build as always, Tom!
    The Zvezda 109F series are superb, I have the F-4 version and hope to get to it sometime soon.

  8. Hey Tom,
    From one 109 addict to another; Great job- really like the paint scheme. I'm planning to replicate that paint scheme on the Has 1/32nd kit I recently picked up. After I finish off the K and G-2 I have in progress now... So many kits, so little time!

  9. Well done Tom! I like that paint scheme a lot and as an added bonus it is great fun to do with the airbrush!



  10. Nice job Tom! Great spray work. What airbrush did you use?
