last of 2020/first of 2021
Technically, this Special Hobby Bf-109E-4 is a 2020 kit, since I started it in December. But I didn’t decal and finish it till today, so it’s the first one finished of 2021.
This new Special Hobby 1/72 Bf-109E-4, done in cooperation with Eduard, is simply the best 109E in 1/72. It has detail one would expect in 1/49: separate control surfaces, superb riveted surface detail, etc. Unlike every other 1/72 109, you can drop the slats and flaps and pose the elevators and ailerons.
Markings for the Bf-109E-4 flown in August/September 1940 by Oberleutnant Gerhard Schoepfel of I/JG 26.
I’ve posed it with the Arma Hobby Hurricane I in Josef Frantisek’s markings, since Schoepfel is the likely pilot who shot Frantisek down in October.
