1/32 Hasegawa Messerschmitt Bf-109G 6 Red 8 ”Mosquito chaser”

This is Kurt Gabler’s Messerschmitt Bf-109G 6 Red 8 III./JG300, in July 1944. Red 8 was a standard camouflaged machine with a ‘stripped-down’ (sanded) finish for an extra turn of speed. But there are still some areas of paint over the airframe like wing roots.

I used the standard Hasegawa 1/32 scale Bf 109G-6 kit. Cockpit modified by Aires cockpit set. Cockpit components painted to RLM66.
Horizontal tail surfaces replaced by Master detail set.
Painting was done with Alclad lacquers.
Decals are from EagleCals EC#88 Bf-109Gs JG300 part 1 decal set
Last modifications are:
-Quickboost exhausts
-Barracudacast spinner and main wheels
You can see built process in the WIP section:

  1. Looks like a winner to me Tolga.

  2. Well done Tolga, “got to love Alclad”. This really gives a unique look to a 109.

  3. Stellar workmanship as usual, Tolga…love what you’ve done with this.

  4. Beautiful work, Tolga.

  5. Excellent bare metal build. Its unusual to see Me-109 with little or no paint. Whats the story behind Gabler’s bird? Was he successful in bring down a couple of Mossies?

  6. Quick Google …yes he was successful in getting a Mossie. Apparently there were several more Me-109s in his unit that had the paint finish sanded down.

  7. Nice subject – like the unusual scheme. Great finish on it!

  8. Very neat, and a nice unusual version of the 109.

  9. Thanks for your comments.

  10. Neat subject really like it
