Learning to fly fast...1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109G-14, KG(J)54(27)/KG(J)6

April 7, 2021 · in Aviation · · 6 · 1.8K

When German bomber pilots converted to the 262, they started to train on old trainers and biplanes, then usually moved on to 109s before they got to fly the Schwalbe. Partly these 109s were also used for combat with the KG(J)s.
Sadly there is only one pic of "white 4" that shows it after it was shot down. In earlier years this machine was designated as a G-10. But there is a partial Werknummer known which is from an Erla G-14 block. Then there is discussion if it´s a normal G-14 or a G-14/AS. My dad went for a G-14.
This aircraft was either a KG(J)54 or KG(J)27 bird and later assigned to KG(J)6.

  1. Wonderful build, Reinhard.
    Must have been a big change for those pilots to step up from a 109 to a 262.

  2. Congratulations, Reinhard!
    Another excellent result, well researched.
    I agree with our friend @johnb, quite a change from 109s to Schwalbes...

  3. Another beauty.
