1/48 Tamiya Romanian Bf-109 E

Another subject, this time a . This model tries to replicate a machine that fought on the Eastern Front, including Stalingrad, with the help of a great kit and RB decals.
What baffled me was that Romanian fighter groups chose playful insignia - the group to which this particular plane belonged had Donald Duck, others had Mickey Mouse or Bambi. The name of this fighter was Ileana, Romanian variant for Helen. It was a pleasure to build this model, hope you`ll enjoy it.

  5. George, Spiros - I also find the Romanian livery on Second WW planes a nice combination of colors, dark green and yellow.

  6. Really nice work George. The 109E looks great in Romanian markings.

  7. Looks great! I recently finished a G in Romanian markings - I've always enjoyed those schemes.
