Stranded Jabo…Messerschmitt Bf109F-4/B, 10./JG53

#3/2021

And my dad has finished his first 109 in 2021.
Hasegawa kit, bomb rack and 50kg bombs from Zvezda, Eduard seatbelts, EZ Line for antenna wires, plastic rods and lead wire for the brake lines. RLM74/75/76 painted with AK Real Color. Shortened the legs to get a more realistic look.

On March 27th 1942, Unteroffizier Felix Sauer, serving with 10.(Jabo)/JG53, had to make an emergency landing on the beach of Sicily due to an engine failure. The pane wasnยดt damaged much during the landing but most probably because of the saltwater damage it was declared a 90% loss.

  1. Compliments to your dad, Reinhard.
    He created a beautiful looking 109.
    That paintwork is fantastic.

  2. I agree with John, a fantastic 109 indeed!

  3. ๐Ÿ™‚ … Greetings … ๐Ÿ™‚ :
    Your dad has just made a rare look at the Bf-109, it is not a regular or normal sight to see a
    four bomb rack on this plane, that alone is a big plus.
    Add to it the beautiful paint work and finish and for sure it is a stellar job.
    Well done, thank you for sharing these pictures Reinhard.

  4. Another beauty – I’ve bookmarked this link to help me with the Heller 109F I’m building now!
