Those of you that have been following some of my builds will have noticed that 109’s quite often gets started here at HalfWorks
And more or less as a rule I do not know what the finished plane will be before I get into the build. And so I thought that instead of changing horse mid-stream, I would just start up one every now and then and let it progress in this topic until I decide what markings it will wear.
And so, as announced over in my HA-1109 build, I have two Zvezda 109’s that has been wanting to be built for a long time. I have a few Tamiya Emils (with the odd Airfix and eduard thrown in) and a lot of Eduard Freidrichs and Gustavs on display, but never got around to Zvezda, though these were some of the first kits I bought!
Lets get started – I announced in the other build that I had airbrushed some “RLM 02” and “66” onto the trees.
It was rather thin, and can be considered as a primer.
The throttles for these Zvezda kits are quite nice, being a single part rather that cast onto the wall as the eduard kit has it.
There are some parts that are the same, no matter if it is the F-4 or G-6 package you choose.
The difference is that they are called different letters on the instructions, and as there is no letter on the sprue that works OK
I started with the engines for both, and has so far thought that one of the planes will be with the engine visible.
The engines are just the same, and that has the advantage that if the carpetmonster gets his grip on one of the small parts for the visible engine I have a spare!
next up I think will be more engineprogress, but no promises as this is going to be kind of chaotic
