A looong time ago I built the G-6 from the “Mersu” Limited edition box from Eduard. That is a huge box with sufficient plastic for two 109’s.
It was as far as I remember the second time I used the old Badger Airbrush, and the room for improvement has since been adressed in other builds.
There was a lot of photoetch in this one
not least the dreaded small red handles and some mountings for the trop filter.
It was also one of my first homemade nav-lights
I still have a huge variety of Finnish markings in the box, so more of these will come at a later date.
I did not post it back then, but to keep track, it has been added now so I can see how far it is till I reach 109 109’s 🙂
By the way – the pilot of this one later became Chairman of IPMS Finland as some of you may have read in the instructions.
