Carpathian Schmitt…1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109G-6, Romanian Airforce

Built in 2017. Hasegawa kit, Gunze and Tamiya acrylics used, EZ Line for aerials, plastic rods and lead wire for brake lines and cockpit fuel line, decals from RB Productions.

Model shows an a/c of Grupul 7/9 Vanatoare in Piestany in January 1945. At that time Romania was already reached by the Red Army and fought along its side against the Germans. So yellow IDs changed to white and crosses to roundels.

  1. Excellent Gustav, Reinhard!
    Painting is amazing!

  2. Those were the days of 109’s versus 109’s.

  3. Very realistic looks, Reinhard.
    Ofcourse another big “Like”.

  4. Great attention to detail on this. I like the over painted spinner spiral.

  5. And now I may have to add another G-6 to my 109 project! I’d not seen the round version of the Romanian markings – very colorful. Thanks for another “reference” project!

  6. I really like these Romanian schemes. The co-belligerent roundels also have very pleasing colors that make the whole finish really stand out. Perfectly applied decals – flawless. Excellent weathering on this model too.
