Under new Management…1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109G-4/trop, 1 Sqn SAAF

Built in 2019. Hasegawa kit with Rising Decals, Eduard seatbelts, EZ Line for the antenna wires. Once again shortened the Hasegawa main legs for about 2mm.
Gunze and Tamiya acrylics used, AML masks for the Erla zig-zag pattern.

The aircraft was originally assigned to 2.(H)/14, Aufklärungsgruppe 14. Looking at pics of the aircraft, couldn´t tell if it was fitted with a camera or not, my dad built it without one.
The plane was captured in July 1943 on Sicily by 1 Sqn SAAF, tested and later most probably scrapped.
