Hasegawa Bf-109 E1 (made from E4 kit) 1/72 “Leo Zaunbrecher”

August 11, 2017 · in Aviation · · 11 Comments

This is the Bf-109 E1"Leo Zaunbrecher" made from Hasegawas 109 E4. Uffz Zaunbrecher managed a forced landing with his machine on 12 August 1940, after an air battle with Spitfires from 615 Sqn, in a wheat field near Lewes. This shot was assigned to Pilot Officer J. McLintock. The wounded Uffz Zaunbrecher was captured and taken to the Princess Alice Hospital in Eastbourne.
I my opinion the one 'o' nine: this is still a nice kit in this scale, but to expensive. I prefer the Tamiya kit and then the Airfix kit. Building this model makes no difficulties, but needed some corrections. I later discovered that the the red line on the pot side of the fuselage, hast to be atached. So the red line is missing on some pictures. Colors are from Mr. Hobby.
Notice the tiny mirror on the top of the canopy!

Thanks for watching.

  1. Great work! It looks excellent!

  2. And the hits just keep on comin'...looks fabulous - all of it!

  3. Outstanding! I loved the humor of the hand shot. Puts everything in perspective.

  4. Another masterpiece. I like the hangar you use for your photos. To me the "Emil" 109's look the best.

  5. Among other things we were told as kids would make us go blind, building 1/72 scale model airplanes is on that list !
    Another example of high quality work, here Andreas !. Well done.

  6. Andreas - You deserve all the kudos shown in the posts above mine. You do outstanding work in a scale I could never manage. I'll post my 1/48 scale version of this same a/c but I have to say mine is perhaps a poor cousin. I'm relieved you decided red was the appropriate colour for the oblique line running aft from the left cockpit rear. Some artists decided it was probably black and I still don't understand its purpose.

  7. You've certainly the knack of producing convincing scenes in this scale which really help to show off your superb models. The story behind the model is good, too!

  8. Happy that you like it! Thank you to all of you!

    Nicely done!

  10. Another lovely bird! As much as I love the work you've done on the 109's and 190's, I'm really eager to see your work on some unusual subjects. Got anything along those lines hanging out there waiting to display...?

  11. Good looking model Andreas, nicely presented.
