Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-10

January 8, 2020 · in Aviation · · 10 · 1.7K

This is my first plane since I built some back in the early 70’. Back then we didn’t bother painting the models, only glued them together and slapped on the decals.
All in all a fun build but I think I’ll stick to armor models 🙂

  1. Geir, Perhaps you could reconsider about going back to AFVs entirely because your 109 is far too good for a first try in over 40 years of hobby. Very nice indeed!

  2. The Me 109 is my favorite plane from WWII. You did very well on this bird, being a tanker!

  3. Well done Geir. A fine G-10. What were the colours you used under the wings?


  4. Hello Geir, @LA5OB
    I like what you have done on your first attempt at building aircraft since the 70's ! It sounds like we used the same building methods back then. Glue them together with tube glue and slap the stickers on... Presto ! It's done in a few hours.

    These late war Luftwaffe subjects are so cool, since they offer such a wide variety of color schemes. I served in M-60 and the M1A1 series of tanks, and I have looked at some of your armor builds. You have done a fantastic job with everything you have posted. The look like miniatures of the real deal... This 109 is just like your other builds... You shrunk down a real one and posted pictures of it, didn't you ?

  5. Great work on this G-10!

  6. Great job! That kit still stands up well.

  7. Nice 109! Came out great.

  8. Great looking plane, Geir. As I pass from my 60s into my 70s, slapping plastic together with glue and no paint doesn't sound so bad. :o)

  9. It's a shame that you are considering only building targets, when your 109 is so nicely done!
