Again another Me109……:
This was a little testbed project I did in 2017. On the one hand, I once inherited some of these hemispherical wooden bases and on the other hand, I always wanted to show this Me109 in flight. I was happy [...]
Another nice Airfix kit completed. This is a very well engineered kit that essentially fell together. The only finicky issue was that the propeller/shaft assembly wouldn't seat fully in the engine until I filed out the opening some. This was [...]
