1/48 Hasegawa Bf 109G-2 trop

1/48 Hasegawa Bf 109G-2 trop,

Flown by Oblt. Werner Schroer, CO of 8./JG 27, Rhodes, early November, 1942 Werner Schroer achieved 61 kills in the skies over Africa., the first of which was a Hurricane downed on April 19, 1941 over Tobruk, Libya. Later, Schroer served as a Gruppenadjutant of I./JG 27. He assumed command of 8th Staffel JG 27 and in April, 1943, assumed command of the entire II./JG 27.

He ended the war as Geschwaderkommodore of JG 3 with 114 kill to his credit (including 26 four-engined bombers). He was awarded the Knight´s Cross on October 21, 1942 and on April 19, 1945 he became the recipient of the Swords as well. The typical desert camouflage scheme of RLM 79 and RLM 78 is topped off with irregular splotches of green, probably in RLM 70. The aircraft is depicted from early November, 1942, going by the sixty kill marks on the rudder.

  1. Looks pretty nice, Ayhan ! Just one question, did you run into a problem with your flat coat ? It looks a bit “frosted”.
    Great Gustav anyway !

  2. Another spectacular offering, sir… with the usual sharp photos.

    Tell Bernd you did that ‘frosted’ effect on purpose to achieve a new look for weathering and wear. 🙂

  3. Ayhan, do you suppose they added the green anticipating the move to Sicily, or Tunisia? It makes a nice change from the 79/78, with the 80 splotches. One could do ME/BF 109s for a long time, given their multiple schemes with variations.
    Nice choice on the color scheme, and the execution. It’d be a standout in any collection.

  4. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    Ayhan, one thing for sure. That is one impressive 109.
    Very different in it’s camouflage and colors. For sure it stands out.
    The weathering, true it is not what we are used to but it is very convincing in it’s totality. I truly like this one, very nice work.

  5. Great looking 109!

  6. Seriously good work, Ayhan.

  7. Thank you guys, i am glad you like the model.
