Shark in the Sky…1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109D-1, JGr 176
My dad´s latest completion.
The not that bad Modelsvit kit which is basically the same as the AMG ones, same engineering and parts break down but a bit more detailed. Kit comes with some PE parts, masks for canopy and sharkmouth, although the masks aren´t really usable. My dad painted the red part of the mouth, the teeth are kit decals. Camo done with Gunze Aqueous RLM 70/71/65, brake lines added with plastic rods and lead wire, antenna wires with EZ Line.
Model shows a prewar bird of JGr. 176.
