I spotted this plane in the Classic Colours series of books "Aufklarer" volume two and was immediately attracted to it. Additions to the kit were:
blanking off the gun troughs
adding detail to the wheel wells
installing an under fuselage came[...]
Here's the latest model off my bench - Trumpeter's 1/24th scale Bf-109 G10. Built more or less out of the box, but with the addition of some Eduard seatbelts and some Barracuda wheels. I also opened up the armour plate behind the p[...]

Anyway, I had this kit sitting up in the stash, and I saw one in a video about the early part o[...]
