SWAT…1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109G-1 Fieseler-Skoda FiSk 199
After the Fw190 with the Hagelkorn gliding bomb, my dad has finished another subject of the Special Weapons And Tactics category.
Hasegawa kit (limited), added Eduard seatbelts, Antenna wire with EZ Line and fishing line, yellow fuel line in the cockpit and brake lines with plastic rods and lead wire. “Spears” of the wing tanks with plastic rods. As a G-1 the aircraft had a pressurized cockpit. Removed the side airscoop from the windshield and added a sealed canopy back wall with an Eduard part found in the sparesbox. The little airscoop on the font fuselage was a Fw190 part taken also from the sparesbox. Hasegawa didn´t provide underwing Stammkennzeichen decals, these were done with Luftwaffe code decals from Fantasy Printshop. Painted with Gunze RLM 74/75 and AK Real Color RLM76. The additional landing gear is provided as a metal part in the kit.
In 1942 plans were made to enable the 109 to carry a large 500kg bomb. The Fieseler company designed the modifications. This consisted of the addition of a auxiliary undercarriage leg fitted under the center of the fuselage. This leg was jettisoned after take-off and was fitted with a parachute for retrieval. After the bomb was dropped the FiSk-199 could land in a normal way. The modifications were carried out by Skoda in Prague, hence the assignment of the Fi-Sk designation.
It is thought that two aircraft were converted and tested.
