Under new Management, 1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109G-2/R6 Soviet Airforce
My father´s latest and last? contribution to his captured Bf109 theme this year.
Had a Hasegawa Bf109 F/G fuselage lying around from an abandoned project. Then he had the idea to play Frakenstein and fusion it with a wing and undercarriage from Fujimi. (Had still two Fujimi kits in our stash that he won´t build)
After some work the wing fit perfectly. Seatbelts from Eduard, Russian star decals from the sparesbox, translucent JG3 decal from an old Aeromaster sheet, brake lines with lead wire and EZ Line, the latter was used for the antenna wire too.
MRP RLM74/75/76 for the base camo, AK Real Color AMT-7 Blue and MRP AMT-4 Green for the overpainted areas.
The model shows an aircraft of JG3 that was captured in the Stalingrad area by the Soviets. Sources differ, some say JG3 I. Gruppe, some II. Gruppe, either end of 1942 or early 1943.
