Magic of an airbrush and well engineered kit

Because I had birthday recently, my family decided to buy me this lovely Bf 109 E-4 from Tamiya as a gift. I would recommend this kit for beginners. In box is only one plastic sprue and one clear sprue. fit of this kit is absolutely incredible. There is no need for putty and decals are great. This was also my second kit painted by an airbrush and I built it in two days. Let me know what do you think 😉

  1. O.O.S. IS MY ANSWER………..(Out-Of-Sight)…..WOW!!!! you did one heck of a fantastic job on this model. As a modeler with 30 years of experience building for myself and for clients I was never that “FAST” building any model. You did one heck of a good job.

    Did you take any close up photos of the cockpit?

    Again….GREAT JOB ADAM!!!!!

  2. Looks like you are a natural talent Adam, well done!

  3. Lots of good things happening with this model Adam. How about more photos? Show off your gifts and talents. When you got it flaunt it.

    two thumbs up.

    • I will defenetly post more photos of my models in the future 😉 . I am curently working on MiG-21 SMT from Eduard and F-15E from academy. Here you have some photos of the cockpit 🙂

      • Since it’s only your second airbrushed model Adam (and congratulations on that, it looks great) let me pass along a tip for dealing with the “flash” around the decals. That comes from air bubbles getting under the decal. It’s easily solved: slice the decal up with a #11 tip, then flood it with decal setting solution. That will get rid of the bubbles, the decal will snuggle down and look like it was painted on, and all will be well. You can do that “save” on your model now, if you like. Never too late.

        And again, congratulations. Learning the airbrush is a real accomplishment, and it took me more than twice to get to your level.

        • Thanks for the tip 🙂 I got rid of the decal flash, it looks much better now.

  14. That’s a real beauty! I also just finally moved from brushes to an airbrush, and it takes a bit of getting used to, but looks like you are an old-hand at it!

  15. Excellent build of a classic plane.
