After a longer 109 pause, here´s my dad´s newest one.
Good old kit with decals from the Topdrawings Bf109E booklet. Painted with RLM65 Gunze H67, RLM02 using Tamiya XF-22 and AK Real Color RLM71, field camo on the fuselage with AK Real Color RLM70 and AMT-11 Gray. Antenna wires done with EZ Line, rearview mirror taken from a Hasegawa Spitfire kit.

This aircraft initially served with 5./JG54, received a spare cowl from 8./JG54 and was then put into service with III./ in May 1941, Balkans, still wearing the JG54 emblems.
