End of War...1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109G-10 (Erla), 3./JG300

25/2021

And here´s my dad´s second 109 of ´s Wilde Sau Pt II Dual Combo I bought my dad for Father´s Day.
Like with the other, mostly built oob. Added brake lines with plastic rods and lead wire, EZ Line for the antenna wires.
Towards the end of the war, Erla G-10 and other types they produced, were painted either in two darker green tones or in a single darker green tone for better ground coverage. Not exactly known which colour, could be a variation of RLM81, even 70 or 71. My dad used Gunze H421 Dark Green as it was proposed by Eduard. Underwing painted with Gunze RLM76 and MRP White Aluminium. Fuselage band is painted too.

  1. that is bay-eeeeeeeeeutiful... <3 great job, Bravo Zulu sir!

  2. That is one mean looking 109. Sort of takes it back to pre-war looks with the all over green camou.

  3. Nice work. This one really stands out.

  4. Awesome like your dad's usual standard, Reinhard @grimreaper
    His eye for perfection is fantastic.
    Absolute 'Liked' this one as well.

  5. Another great looking 109!

  6. Reinhard, @grimreaper
    This is my favorite of your two latest postings. It has that Late War Luftwaffe "look" with the simplified colors, and bare metal in some places under the wings. This model is the best one your Dad has built to date in my opinion. It was a joy to read how it went together. Thank you for posting yet another Luftwaffe group build journal. People like you have made it as successful as it has become.

    This was the perfect father's Day gift 🙂

    I definitely pressed the "like" button.

  7. Another Spreitzhofer Family masterpiece!

  8. Ditto from me, Reinhold (@grimreaper). Talent must run in the family, well done.

  9. I like that - the unusual monochromatic finish, and the NMF underneath, pair up to give it a very nice scheme. The build and finish are what we've come to expect from the Spreitzhofer Works!

  10. Very nice work on this 109… the all green camo plus the bare metal & blue lower surface really stands out .
