Me 109 G6. 9/JG54. Eduard 1/48

January 10, 2021 · in Aviation · · 12 · 2.1K


In parallel with my Focke Wulf, here is its brother in arm.
This is the "old mold" from that I had in my stash for a long time.
Despite some issues with the scale and details, as I am not a rivet counter, It did the job and as usual was a joy to build.

Enjoy and take care of you all.

  1. No one would tell this is the “cursed” first release of Eduard’s 109 G, but you know it also. Only when comparing with other 1/48 109s side by side was the slightly bigger wing section noticeable.
    The camouflage is first rate Emmanuel, a wonderful model for sure, thumbs up

  2. To the casual modeler . . . it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and therefore is. To the
    "Fan Boy's" this is a cardinal sin. To Eduard's credit they where transparent in admitting that mistakes where made and they corrected them. Not very many modeling companies spend the extra coin to do this.
    Impressive Emmanuel.

    Two thumbs up.

  3. Yes. Two thumbs up indeed. Every bit as nice as your butcher bird.

  4. Very nice work on this and a super-nice result.

    Just don't ever sit it close to a "dimensionally-accurate" model and nobody will ever know the problems. (But if you do, they become apparent, as I found with the early kit I did without modification)

  5. Very nicely done Emmanuel (@tetram). I like it a lot, and will hit the star on my way outta here.

  6. A great parallel build, Emmanual.
    I do like this one as I did the 190.

  7. Fantastic paint job, whoever originally designed this livery must have had more than a couple of glasses of schnapps, very worthy of pressing the like button.

  8. Another fantastic model, Emmanuel!
    Love the paint job!

  9. This is a fantastic looking mottling paint scheme ! It looks perfect, and is not something that is easy to get done on the first time. It usually takes me 3 or 4 attempts of touch up here and there before I am happy with how they look. As far as this being the "flawed" Eduard early version of the 109, it looks pretty good in the pictures !

  10. Beautifully finished and weathered. Looks great!

  11. A beautiful build, Emmanuel. Crisp detail, lovely paint job & weathering: top marks for the mottling effects too. A big 'like' for this one!
