Sonderkommando Elbe ME-109 G
Hi again, this is my build of Otaki’s 1/48 scale ME-109 G. I made it to replicate an aircraft of the Sonderkommando Elbe squadron that has already accomplished its mission. This squadron was made up of ME-109s and FW-109s. They were used to ram into american bombers during the Allied daylight bombing raids. The pilots of the ramming aircraft was to bail out before impacting the bomber. I scratch built the frames inside the fuselage from old decal paper and the wires to control the elevators and rudder. I used my dad’s Dremmel tool to thin the plastic to make bullet holes. I hope to build more crash scenes, so can I have any advice for future builds?
