1/48 Hasegawa Bf 109G-6/AS

November 27, 2013 · in Aviation · · 17 · 2.3K

This is the Bf 109G-10 backdated to be a G-6 A/S. I sanded the bulges under the exhaust stacks and rescribed the panel lines. The G-6 oil cooler, Fusion prop, and G-6 fixed tail wheel were added. Paint is a Tamiya mix of RLM 76. I treally like Tamiya paint. The figure I have had for years and I can't remember who made it but the resin molding was really good. The ground work is Sculptamold. It worked much better than Celluclay. Faster drying time and no shrinkage. This aircraft was flown by Horst Petzschler of 2/Jg 3.

  5. John,
    Very,very, nice. It,
    It's obvious you are a 109 fan. I like what you do with them and love the varrived schemes you put on them. Great job.

  6. Nice clean build. Do you use ink to bring out the panel lines on your plane? They are very pronounced and look great...

  7. Thank you Mike. I use a water based acrylic wash in my panel lines. I mix it up and add a drop of dish washing detergent and apply with a pointed brush. I do this over a coat of Future. When it dries I wipe it off in the direction of the air flow the seal it with another coat of future. The color is burnt umber mixed with black. The paint Is Windsor and Newton acrylic in a tube.

  8. Great looking build, and what a last name for the pilot-six consonants in a row!

  9. fine work and terrific figure
