1/32 Hasegawa Messerschmitt Bf 109G6 “Yellow 5”
Here is the last part of my 1/32 Bf-109 Gustav Trilogy.
The first part was 1/32 Bf 109G6 Red 8 “Mosquito chaser”:
The second one was 1/32 Bf 109G10 “Black 12”:
And this is 1/32 Hasegawa Bf 109G6 with the markings of “Yellow 5”. This Gustav was found by US troops in May 1945 at Henschel Aero Engine Works in Kassel.
The base kit is Hasegawa’s Bf 109G14 due to later style rudder and Erla Haube canopy.
Cockpit modified by using “MDC” resin cockpit set.
Horizontal stabilizators replaced by “Master Details” resin set.
Exhausts are from “Quickboost”
Main wheels , spinner and propellers are from “Barracudacast”
Painting was done with Gunze Sangyo acrylics. Upper surfaces are painted to RLM81 and RLM 83 except for the right wing. It seems that right wing was replaced with a wing painted in regular greys (RLM 75 / 74). Left wing upper surfaces colour is RLM81/83, lower surfaces is RLM76 with some natural metal panels.
Decals are from Eagle Cals EC80
