Airfix Bf-109E1 (converted from E3 kit)
Hello, This is another Emil from my workbench. I converted a E3 to an E1 by removing the ammo bulges under the wings and recessing new hatches. The canopy is from spare parts, cause Airfix is providing the E4 – E7 canopy only. The decals are from AVALON No#7003 “Early Emils” The yello 12 is from 6/JG 26, Summer 1939 with white tail and wing tipps. Camo scheme is the standard RLM 70/71/65. I used AK “real colors” with AK Thinner and an “noname” china airbrush. The Pilot figure in front is in 1/48 scale, but looks nice in this scene in my opinion. Thank you for watching and happy modelling.
