Black Tulip...1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109G-10 Erla, I./JG52
28/2020 and the last one for this year
Eduard kit, upper wing and fuselage Balkenkreuz decals taken from a Fw190 kit because Erla G-10 had smaller ones, besides that the ones on the upper wings were in a slightly more outward position. Brake lines done with plastic rods and lead wire, EZ Line for the antenna wire. My dad didn´t adress the other kit issues. Eduard goes for RLM 75/82 camo but usually Erla G-10 had the standard 74/75 until the end. AK Real Color paints used for 74/75/76. JaPo, Kagero und Ullmann´s book used as reference.

Superb. very realistic paintwork
Very nice 109, Reinhard.
Those exhaust stains are really great.
Another really fine example from the Spreitzhofer family.
Paintwork and weathering are outstanding!
Another beauty! I've always wanted to do Hartman's tulip-nosed bird...
