Eduard 1:48 Bf- 109G-6
This is the aircraft as flown by Rudolf Bozik (10.7. 1920-27. 6. 2000) during Sept. 1944. These are the Slovak Combined Squadron. This is from the Bunny Fighter Club Dual Combo, two kits in one box + a spiffy T-shirt. When you are a BFC member you get a full-time 15% off all products plus special deals for club members only. A tad expensive at first but the deals make up for it in the long run. Paints used: innards were sprayed with Tamiya XF63 German Grey. Upper camouflage was Mr Hobby Aqueous H68 RLM74 and a 30 year old bottle of their RLM75, number unknown as the label had long disappeared. Undersides were painted with Vallejo Model Air(VMA) 71.008 Pale Blue RLM76 and the gear legs and wheel wheels in 71.044 RLM02. This is a wee bit too green and I’ve since found a closer match. The propeller, spinner and fuselage band was done with Tamiya XF27 Black Green and the narrow band with VMA 71.078. Gold Yellow (RLM04). Just a note to all those that say Vallejo isn’t a sturdy paint and lifts. The yellow fuselage band was masked for five days while I sprayed the rest and the RLM76 was masked for two days. When all the tape was removed, not one bit of paint lifted from the VMA cover areas. I like to let the paint set for at least 24 hours before masking. Antenna rigging was done with Uschi van der Rosten Super-Fine thread. The stuff is a pain in the keester to work with, at times I don’t even know if I’m holding it. This stuff is super stretchy and when touched to a wee bit of CA, it holds on like a scared limpet to a rock
