Avia S-199 (KP, 1/72)

June 12, 2016 · in Aviation · · 10 · 3.5K

Avia is one of the last produced post-war Me 109's variations and was the first fighter obtained by the IAF, forming Israel's first fighter squadron. First Israeli's aerial victory was also scored by S-199. So, I wanted this "Sakin" to land on my stash for a very long time, so first I've got AML kit, then I've bought some aftermarket parts and then released its new S-199 line in scale. So, I've started WIP thread on iModeler – The new KP kit is great, but I wanted to add to it as much details as I can.

This model is a mix of a new KP with AML (PE and resin) and scratch parts (more information in WIP thread). Base color – Hataka (Poland) authentic acrylics. Weathered with oils and pigments.

Hope you'll like it!

  1. Really nice work...even more so in that scale. The photography is great!

  2. Dmitry, this is really nice. one of the best 1/72 scale S-199 (or a bf 109) I've seen. Can't believe its 1/72 scale.

  3. Hello Dima! Excellent model! Only close-up pictures are too grainy.
    Дима, привет! Отличная модель! Только фотки крупным планом слишком зернистые.

  4. Love it! I think I have an older KP version of this in the stash, and want to also build the Israeli version. Thanks for the reference material! Really like the shading/weathering you did.

    Nice work Dmitry, the markings really do set it apart.
