Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4 in 1/48 from Eduard

I’ve been putting this kit off for a while until I felt calm enough to do the freehand mottling scheme required by these early Emils.

I reckon she looks great next to the recent Battle of Britain Spitfire by Tamiya…reminds one just how small the 109 was!

  1. Nice build and presentation, my friend….well done.

  2. I think Craig was right on the money with his comments !!!!

    Getting Luftwaffe mottling to look right is not something I get right the very first time. Even after all of the Luftwaffe planes I have painted the mottling on, I still have never got it perfect the very first time. I always have to go back and fine tune it in at least several locations until I’m satisfied with it.

    Yours turned out very good, especially for your first attempt. It looks right at home sitting next to the other 109, and has some good company there with the Spitfire…………..


  3. I also like your presentation; Congratulations to your amazing build and finish!

  4. Justin, This looks great and I have to agree with Louis (above comment) about how difficult getting the molting scheme just right is, or as I like to say “getting that consistent inconsistency look just right. However you seem to have got it done pretty good on this. Well done !

  5. Fantastic work Justin. Your work on the motling looks lovely. Very nice presented too.

  6. Well done. “14” up for presentation next?

  7. Lovely work on the Emil Justin !
    The mottling is beautifully judged!

  8. Looks fantastic – paint work excellent! Lovely!
