I haven't built one of these in awhile, so I decided to just relax and have some fun with it. Aside from a little putty around the area where the cowling meets the wings' leading edge, this kit goes together very well. The markings are for the w[...]
This was from an old Dogfight Doubles kit (along with a Beaufighter - coming soon). I wasn't actually sure what model of 109 it was, so had to learn about all the variations to figure out what it most closely resembled. Then did some work to mak[...]
G’day all, it’s been an age since I posted here as life has been in the way of modelling recently. Unfortunately I still don’t have a project to share but I thought some of you might be interested in this.
I recently took my son to the Australia[...]

Doing 109Es with the Special Hobby kit is great - that is absolutely t[...]
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[...]
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[...]
