Airwar over Austria…Eduard 1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109G-6/AS JG27
First 109 for the new season and first new Eduard G-6/AS. A troublefree build like all their new 109s. But the molded on pitot tube still looks off and like with their G-10 kits the elevator trim tabs are too small. The antenna mast has still no locating pin and the loop antenna still has to be attached to the already molded on base.
Built oob, added EZ Line and fishing line for the antenna wires and plastic rods and lead wire for the brake lines. Camo painted with MRP RLM74/75/76.
The model displays the aircraft of Unteroffizier Heinz Zimmermann, 6./JG27, stationed in Fels am Wagram/Lower-Austria in July 1944. Zimmermann was shot down and KIA in the area of St.Pölten (nowadays the state capital of Lower-Austria) on August 23rd 1944.
