Bf 109 G-4 /R3 1/48 by Hasegawa
I spotted this plane in the Classic Colours series of books “Aufklarer” volume two and was immediately attracted to it. Additions to the kit were:
blanking off the gun troughs
adding detail to the wheel wells
installing an under fuselage camera
a rear view mirror added to the canopy
cutting away part of the rear nose front fuselage scoop
Aires cockpit set
Cutting Edge prop and spinner and seatbelts
As far as the scoop mods, I think this was done to increase the airflow to the spark plug leads as this plane operated in France in the summer of 1944 by 4.(F) 123 and was used for low level recon running flat out most of the time.
