1/32 Hasegawa Bf109 G-6
I wanted to build this particular G-6 when I came across the markings in an internet search. This aircraft was flown by Anton Hackl. The fuselage chevron provided in the decals was not quite the right size and did not have the right proportions in 1/32, so using the one photo of this bird I could find, I approximated the proportions using the panel lines on the actual aircraft, and made use of proportional measurements to help me. I think I came pretty close. I made the seat belts from paper printouts, and used some resin sets for the prop and the radiator housing under the nose. I made brake lines from fine wire. The kit is painted with Model Master enamels. For the white on the spinner I used Tamiya Acrylic white.
