So each Christmas I try to do a ‘clear the bench project’ – nothing too taxing, so I can pretty much get done in about two to three weeks. This year, Trumpeter’s 1/32 109 E-7 got the nod.
Not sure why folks seem to shy away from the Trumpy 109E kits. Almost all the completed ones that I have seen are from the Eduard and Dragon kits. Ahh well… I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this one. Perfect fit everywhere, lots of detail, excellent etch, decals and phenomenal clear parts (not so excellent rubber tyres tho’). For a change I broke out my enamels for the RLM74/75/76/04 colours, all of which I mixed using my preferred Mk.I eyeball method.
Highly recommend this to anyone contemplating a 1/32 build and perhaps a wee bit put off by the excessive parts count and cost of some of the ‘uber kits’ around just now – I got this off a well known online auction site from a Chinese based seller for just £16.50! (that’s as good as giving it away) even down here to NZ the postage was just ten quid.
So here t’is all done, only addition is the kit specific Eduard Zoom set which includes the harness too; And I have to admit that I’m very pleased with it. Please feel free to hurl any criticism, ask any questions or make any comment at all.
Thanks for taking the time to look and Happy 2019 to all here.
