Bf109F from Eduard in quarter scale.

August 8, 2021 · in Aviation · · 20 · 2.1K

Very much delayed, this kit; since I was distracted a few weeks ago, by a Spitfire conversion that I just couldn't put aside!

Finished now, a little late for the group build held by my local IPMS (NSW) club, but it's the enjoyment that matters anyway. This was a great kit; everything fitted just right & I chose a simple colour scheme to speed things up a bit. Actually simple is not what it seemed, as I did a lot of preshading & pastel work, although it doesn't really show up in the pics. 's mouldings are to be commended as the fine surface detail is still visible through the finish. This was a lot of fun & I'm sure to do another, perhaps with a more adventurous comouflage scheme.

  1. This is an excellent Bf-109, Tony!
    You might call your chosen scheme "simple", but it is not that simle to come up with such a wonderful result!

  2. Enjoyment is what really counts, Tony @tony-prince
    With the results of this 109 it is clear that you had a great time building it.
    It looks awesome.

    • Thanks John. There were no moments of hesitation or disappointment with this model. Each step happily led to the next. Its a great kit & I'll do a later mark soon (I hope!).

  3. This 109 turned out great ! The cockpit interior looks very detailed. Outstanding workmanship, Tony @tony-prince !

  4. Love the desert camo on a Bf-109F! Simple and elegant, great work!

  5. Sometimes a simpler scheme is more impressive, since it's harder to distract the viewer from seeing all the other work.

    I like this a lot.

  6. Very sharp 109 Tony!

  7. Very neat looking 109, Tony, the simpler schemes keep the viewer interested in the details of the build, definitely liked.

    • Thanks George. If I'd proceeded with the scheme I originally had in mind, I'd be tearing my hair out by now (not that there's all that much of it anyway!)

  8. Great looking 109 - love the simple scheme (I like desert...). Well done!

  9. Beautiful build, love the desert camo on your Bf-109F!

  10. A great looking 109!
