My first Eduard Emil!
having built a few of Eduards F and G models, as well as Tamiyas nice old E models, this is my first Eduard Emil Build
It is build as 6o119 with the wooden eye emblem.
This kit has been around for a few years, so how it builds has been described elsewhere – quite often too. Suffice it to say that I still prefer the old Tamiya kit for its simplicity. If you want detailed engine and all Eduard is the obvious choice though.
I am not at all satisfied with my decal and paintwork, but room for improvement is the thing that drives us forward – right?
Next time I build a Eduard 109E I will be detailing the openings a bit and a lot of other areas will need a bit more than OOB attention I think.
By the way – 6o119 was later used as the prototype for the installation of the HS-12Z-89 engine for the Me-109J (Export versions were called Me – take my word for it) that was to be built in Spain. Now, that is another story – but obviously one that need to be built – one day. . .
