Tamiya 1:48 scale Bf-109E-4
Finally got back to the bench here in uber muggie New York!
Tamiya 1:48 scale Messerschmitt Bf-109E-4, flown by Oblt. Gerhardt Schopfel, France 1940. Oblt. Schopfel was assigned to the 9th Stfl, 3rd Grp, Jagdgeschwader 26 during the Battle of Britain.
7 additional images. Click to enlarge.
Looks good, Frederick...first, it's a Tamiya and secondly it's an Me-109! 🙂

Nice work Frederick. It is always nice to remember the BoB .
Thank you for sharing the images.
Thank you, I did a Hurricane a few months back from the BoB also.
Nice 109, Frederick. Maybe a little more brightness in the photos next time? Maybe it's just me but I was struggling to get the detail in the shadows. Anyway, I always had a soft spot for the E-series - like the Gs before they went to the gym.
Not you Rob. One on the light I use to take pictures blew a bulb and I was in too much of a rush to go out and get more.
Nicely done 109. Was it OOB or did you add any extras?
Thanks Tom. Kit is OOB. The thing I guess you can say was added are the seat belts, which are strips of paper cut from the instruction sheet. Buckles too.
Freddy that really came out great ! Overall finish is fantastic 🙂
OK, so maybe the pictures are a little dark, but it's still a smart looking 109.
Great looking 109! Love the E - my favorite of the breed, and like the classic blue sided scheme.
Real nice ! Ditto on the blue scheme.
Nice Emil Frederick-no pun intended!?
Great to see it done Freddie! Great paint scheme and weathering, perfectly executed!
Freddie, if you like humidity, come visit in August, one of these times. The only places worse, in my experience, are Ft. Monroe, Va. and the Mekong Delta. I can keep you hydrated, depending on which beer you like.
Nice 109, I missed it previously. The hollenhund insignia is a favorite, and the yellow wing and stab tips are not seen that often, good choice. With MEs, infinate choices for markings and schemes.
