Bf 109E-4 (SpecialHobby 1/72)

April 13, 2021 · in Aviation · · 31 · 2.8K

-4, new kit by in scale.

Kit goes really well, the fit is good, but check the canopy/fuselage parts before gluing. Detail level is impressive. The only aftermarket I've used was metal barrels (Master) and exhausts (Rexx). But if you want to make canopy opened - kit parts are too thick unfortunately, so some vacu canopy should be used.

Model was painted with Gunze acrylics, and mostly all of the weathering was done using AMMO oilbrushers. For the washes as well.

I can recommend this kit to anybody interested in 1/72 scale.

Thanks for watching!

  1. Mate that looks great!. Beautiful work. Is this the one they did in collaboration with Eduard? I want one!

  2. Excellent work, thought it was of a larger scale.

  3. Looks very nice, Dmitry.
    Paint and weathering makes it look very realistic.
    Especially in this scale.

  4. Once again you have built an absolute gem. Very nice work Dmitry!

  5. An amazing model, Dmitry!
    I am so happy to see excellent 1/72 kits, excellently built!

  6. It is a great looking 1:72 build! I have seen a lot of good reviews of this little kit, and the early 109 look awesome. Your build definitely inspires me to build one.

  7. Nice work, Dmitry. 109s are tiny in 1/72 and difficult to model well. You succeeded with yours.

  8. Wow. Fantastic job, sir. Liked.

  9. That is a beauty! I'm going to have to add one of these to my 109 project.

  10. Great looking 109 Dmitry!

  11. Brilliant work on this little gem, Dmitry, I'm surprised that it needed so much after market goodies though. Definitely liked.

  12. Dmitry, a very realistic look, nicely painted, and I would have never guessed it was 1/72 scale !

  13. Just Beautiful !
