Eduard Bf109E-1 in 1/32
This is my first completion for 2016 although I started it before Christmas. The kit is the Eduard Week end boxing & went together with no real problems. Admittedly there is only one set of decals included & no resin or etched bits. this gave me the opportunity to try out a few things such as drilling out the instrument panel, putting a black piece of card behind & scratching instrument details on before filling with Future. Worked well, except you can’t see it (yeah..I know it’s there etc.). Seat belts came from Eduard too; they’re a printed plasticised paper with beautiful etched fittings & apart from nearly sending me blind threading it all together look the part just fine.
For markings I used the set from Eagle Cals, the option being for Fw Hermann Graf in April 1940. Paints from Model Master (Acryl). Hope you like it…
