February 28, 2014 · in Aviation · · 13 · 3.9K

The model that I present here is a Messerschmitt 109 G-6 J-705
The 22 November had emergency landing.

The rubber seal in the fuel tank came off and so was the supply of
Fuel reaching the engine, the pilot was Oblt Hofer who had emergency landing with the Messerschmitt.

The model is a kit in scale 1:32 and all marks have been sprayed.

    A very well done Hans.

  2. Hans, that's a fantastic looking 109. It really "lights"up a shelf !

  3. Hans,
    Exceptionally done. Your skill is evident in this model.

  4. Looks like it ready to go. Love the finish especially the lighter color.

  5. Love the subtlety of the finish. Deserves all of the superlatives.

  6. Nice unusual scheme for a 109! Well done as well.

  7. I concur...great-lookin' build AND photos!

  8. Nicely done. Like the markings. Want to make sure you don't get confused with the other guys!

  9. My vote for the best model of the month ,,,with no decals and being all natural with the Swiss markings goes to Hans Messerschmitt 109 G-6 J-705.
    Excellent paint job, some sharp,tight building and there is nothing neutral about the bold colors of red and white stripes with white crosses.

    Two thumbs up and " I like it!"

  10. Well done...absolutely gorgeous!

  11. Like the others have already said, perfect in every way.
