1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109F-4 Ejército del Aire

December 11, 2020 · in Aviation · · 9 · 1.7K

Built in 2015.
kit with decals from LF Models, painted with Gunze and Tamiya acrylics, antenna wires with EZ Line.

In 1943 the Airforce received about a dozen F-4s which were stationed partly in France and Spain. Not much info about these, seems a few were painted in single RLM79. According to the old, non available anymore French book "AVIONS Hors Série No. 5 Les Messerschmitt Espagnols" some were painted in a 3-tone camo similiar to the Spanish He112, to say colors close to the early Luftwaffe ones. You find profiles on the web that show a green-green-grey camo, also LF Models manual shows that scheme but my dad kept to the "Luftwaffe" grey-green-brown color scheme.

    This is another great looking 109. I don't think I have seen one quite like this before. It looks really good in the color choices shown here. That's a very interesting story about where these planes were stationed. Typical with one of your postings, I pressed the "Liked" button too. Thanks for sharing this beauty with us.
