Bf-109K-4 Hasegawa 1/48 "Yellow 13"

August 15, 2021 · in Aviation · · 15 · 2.2K

It's not like we don't see enough 109's here, but I know for some you can never have too many. I finished this one a while back, and really enjoyed the kit. I am not an aficionado so I cannot attest to the kits accuracy or lack thereof. The fit was good and I really liked the scheme, which was my main reason for building it as well as taking a break from some more difficult build.

  1. That's really nice @luftwaffe-birdman. Until the Eduards came along, the Hasegawa kits were the overall best. "Accurate enough" that people didn't slag on them. And like you say, simple kits that made up nicely. As you have clearly demonstrated here.

  2. Nice work, this is a great looking K-4.

  3. Very nice looking 109, Walt @luftwaffe-birdman
    The scheme is indeed wonderful and the demarcation on the wingtips looks great.
    "Liked" a lot.

  4. Excellent 109, Walt!
    What a greatly done camo!
    No, we can never have too many 109s!

  5. Nice one Walt, and is there an Aires extra in that cockpit?

  6. Nice job, Walt. Always nice to see a fine build.

  7. I'm not an aficionado either, but it looks great, especially appreciate the spinner, definitely liked.

  8. Another winner Walt. Fabulous paint job and antenna wiring as well. What's your technique attaching the vertical wire to the horizontal? It looks perfect.

    • Thanks Eric, @eb801, I am currently using smoke colored nylon thread, and it takes to super glue really nicely. I mount the vertical wire into the plane by drilling a #80 hole and dipping the end of the thread in super glue and inserting. Once it sets I run it up to the horizontal wire and attach it with super glue. I let it set and then go back and add a little more super glue. One it sets I snip it close and then add a little Micro Kristal Klear and when it dries I paint the little blob black or dark grey.

  9. Nice Walt, it's good for the MOJO just to take some time and build a fun but not complicated kit. Well done sir.

  10. Walt, that's a really handsome 109! You sure do some good work; that model would grace any display cabinet. I'd love to see it in mine! 🙂

  11. Great-looking 109 - love the scheme. I think the wavy demarcation on the leading edge of the wing is such a unique look, and I want to try to pull that off, but in 1/72 it's a bit intimidating! I'll try it sooner or later...

  12. 🙂 ... Greetings ... 🙂 :
    A 109 is always a good and much welcomed sight.
    This one is clearly no exception, you have done a very keen looking rendition
    of this aircraft Walt. Very nice work on the camouflage.
    Thank you for sharing these images.

  13. Looks great! I have no idea how to get those wavy demarcation lines on the wings, can you share how you did it?
    Thanks for any tips.
