Me-109 Black 10

September 1, 2019 · in Aviation · 8 Comments

Hi, here is my 1/48 Me-109 G-6 from Revel. This model was a mash-up of two other 109s. The ammunition housing on the nose is from the Otaki 109 I built in 2018. The ruder was changed slightly from the G-10 to a G-6 ruder. The canopy is an Airfix E-3 my dad built a while back. I had to use that canopy instead of the one that came with the kit because (like an i***t) I put the whole original canopy in to a cup full of lacquer thinner. Thirty seconds was all it took for my crystal-clear Revel canopy to turn into a fogy mush of "used to be" plastic. Luckily my dad had the spare. It took some modifications to fit, but I think I got the job done. The decals are from a Barracuda set I had left over from other 109s. The kit was painted with Vallejo colors and weathered with oil paints. After I built the model, I got bored and look up the tail number "Black 10" on google and found the real aircraft. I Printed it and framed it so it might add interest to the aircraft.

  1. Thanx for sharing this 109 build! - Nice work with an interesting scheme.

    I know I'm very nerdy on 109's and should you want to change the canopy again, send me a direct message with your adress, and I will send you some from my spares box (got some eduard and some Tamiya, not entirely sure if I got the revell, but as I build mine with an eduard erla hood it might be possible (the E3 hood is not really correct on G-10's, as it has thicker frames and different shape, but if you are happy with your build then it is as it should be!))
