Messerschmitt Bf109 G-6 WNr 161742, Slowak, Eduard 1/48

I do know this Eduard kit has been presented here before, but in order to present my 109's I have chosen to add it here too. I have used the kit decals even though I do realise they are slightly wrong with too fat lines. I opened the vent on [...]

Messerschmitt Bf109G-6, MT-422, Finnish Air Force, Eduard 1/48

A looong time ago I built the G-6 from the "Mersu" Limited edition box from Eduard. That is a huge box with sufficient plastic for two 109's. It was as far as I remember the second time I used the old Badger Airbrush, and the room for impro[...]

Messerschmitt Bf109 E-3a, Swiss, Tamiya 1/48

I do apologise for the dust, but I only had a very short time before the sun dissapeared, so You will have to make do with the dust. I used this one as an excuse to drill and carve a lot of openings and stuff in a standard Tamiya 109, and [...]

There is only one surviving Heinkel 219 Uhu

It was brought to the Garrison Museum in Aalborg, where some attempt was initiated to salvage the parts. Sadly the focus was on iron, and to avoid that rusting further the parts was kept "dry". Rather quickly the parts on display on the muse[...]

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[...]
