  1. Very nice depiction of one of the famous JG.3 109 F-4, Emmanuel! What did you use to mask this lovely splinter scheme?

  2. beautifully done

  3. Emmanuel - first, very well done! You ask for critisism / feedback, just a few really nerdy bits really; The shoulderstraps are fastened just behind the wall behind the seat - it is very common to place them too far back with the eduard PE belts. The F-4 did not have a frame in the middle of the hood - just two pieces of plastic overlapping, and the F-4 did have a slot in the top radiatorflap - but that is not included in any of eduards plastic-parts and has to be added (by PE usually).

    When that is said, I really like you added the brakelines, and the choice of colors are just great - I love these "trop" 109's re-routed to the eastern front and getting additional field-applied camouflage. You really got that just right, so overall a really great 109 - thank you for sharing! (Please do not take the critisism for more than nerd-stuff - your model is fantastic) Thank you for sharing!

    • Thank you so much Erik for your feedback.
      Really appreciated
      To be honest, I made several mistakes on this model. For example, there was F4Z/Trop as a basis, so, they had a bigger cooler underside, a larger intake carburetor and a different propeller.

      Well, It will be for my next life 😉

      • Emmanuel, you really cannot have too many 109's, so just keep them comin'! And you are right - i missed the intake and propeller! Shame on me 🙂

        (just added one of my F-4's - you see that I missed the extra opening in the radiatorflap, and have to make a new one some day)

  4. Very nice model, Emmanuel, the camo standing out.
    All the best!
