Messerschmitt Bf 109 F-4 “Yellow 14”, Hans Joachim Marseille

This build has been posted in the “Work in progress – Aircraft” group, and to see the entire build you may want to check it out there. In 1942, Hans-Joachim Marseille went to Rome for some RandR, returning to Egypt on 24th of August. Upon arriv[...]

Hispano HA-1109/1112 K.1L Tripala conversion for Tamiya 1/48 Bf 109

Just stumbled over this one on SBS-model website. They will be ready to send them out mid August! Great news for an 109aholic like me!

Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-5, Wilde Sau, Eduard, 1/48

This one has been waiting for the last few details for some time, and was actually started in October 2018! I really liked the colors of “white 1” from JG300, but sadly my airbrush skills were not up to the thin lines needed for that one. And [...]

Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-2, Finnish Air Force “MT-225” 1/48

Another 109 to try my teeth on were yet another Eduard 1/48 kit. (the one in the background will be added later, as it was built a bit later, and more detail added) Starting with Eduards fine cockpit with the etch from the "Mersu" double kit. L[...]

Opel Blitz, Tamiya 1/48

Being a recent re-starter in the hobby my main focus at the moment is Bf109's, but to add some interest to the planes I have started adding 1/48 vehicles to my stash. I do have some aftermarket items to make more detailed versions at a later da[...]

Messerschmitt Bf 109 E-7 Trop 1/48

My first go at airbrushing was the Tamiya Bf 109 E-7 in the all too well known red 8 colours (OK - they are very nice colours). There has been incorporated a few changes; the step has been carved out as has a few of the cooling outlets (though [...]

Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-10 Revell 1/48

This is the 3rd model I finished, and one of my first attempts at airbrushing. I inherited an old Badger 150 with a "large" needle, wich is very evident in the mottle. It is mostly OOB, but the canopy was very distorted, so a replacement came f[...]

Excited about these exhausts

The postman has been kind enough to leave a small box on my doorstep! I have been waiting for some time for these to become available, and the other day I got a mail that they had arrived in my kit-pushers store. I immediately phoned a fellow 1[...]

Tamiya Bf 109E-3 1/48

This is my first model in recent years (haven't really built in 30 years). It is the Tamiya Bf 109E-3 as flown by Adolf Galland in August 1940 in III.JG26 in France. It is more or less OOB, with only some scraping of some of the openings, especi[...]
