Aaaahh – de Havilland

Today, 100 years ago, de Havilland Aircraft Company Limited was formed. To celebrate, a new Group has been formed, and if you have anything related to the company do join in. It has been decided to include the early designs of Geoffrey de Havil[...]

Werner Mölders Bf109F-1, 1/48 Eduard

And because it was one of the first, it was an F-1. The F-1 differed from later versions by having the wingroot fillet of the Emil. And to make this one I had to cut up two kits to make the correct wingroot. The Friedric is from Eduards Royal[...]

Japanese Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4, Tamiya 1/48

One of the active Groups is Louis Gardners Empire of Japan Group Build. I am not going to give the full historic tour here - that is for the interested to go and research for themselves, but suffice to say that there was some German influence [...]

Messerschmitt Bf109 G-6, WNr 163248, J-705.

Eduard 1/48, Bunny Fight Club edition. This is yet another one of eduard's nice 109's, this time a special edition of their G-6 made available through their Bunny Fight Club. It is the same as one of their ProfiPacks, but with a special set of [...]

Messerschmitt Bf 109F-4, Royal Hungarian Air Force 1/48

My 9th 109 (does that mean I have to build 100 more? Well the stack of unbuilt kits in the corner of my cave may suggest that, but with a small diversion now and then to other planes and eras). The matter in hand has been the subject of a “wo[...]

Messerschmitt Me109E-3a L-52, Yugoslavia 1/48

OK – things took a turn at the very beginning of the build. Having been spoilt by eduard 109’s the Airfix item is a bit simple and somewhat lacking in detail. Not that it is a bad kit, it is just not an expensive kit. First off, I had a res[...]

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[...]
