The Battle of the Denmark Strait was a short, intense encounter that was a humanitarian disaster for the Royal Navy. In the early hours of May 24th 1941, the HMS Hood was sunk and with 1,418 souls on board, a staggering and scarcely believable[...]
Unfortunately, I made a mistake during the construction of the Me 109 F and fixed it and took new pictures. Kit: 132 Trumpeter
This is Airfix's 1/48 BF-109E-4/7. It's a nice easy kit and fairly well detailed. (not as nice as Eduard's, but not as expensive, either!) The main issues were overly long landing gear legs, wrong canopy, prop could use replacing, and thin but [...]
This is Eduard's excellent BF-109E-4 'overtree' with Eduard 'Zoom' photo etch, finished as Adolf Galland's aircraft, using 'Aeromaster' decals from their 'Galland special' sheet, and painted with Tamiya acrylic's, and weathered with oils and pas[...]

Limited edition/Dual combo EDUARD, 1/48 (#11114)
Pilot kapteeni Jaakko Poulakkainen Finland 1944.

Another 109 to try my teeth on were yet another Eduard 1/48 kit. (the one in the background will be added later, as it was built a bit later, and more detail added)
Starting with Eduards fine cockpit with the etch from the "Mersu" double kit. L[...]
I've been putting this kit off for a while until I felt calm enough to do the freehand mottling scheme required by these early Emils.
I reckon she looks great next to the recent Battle of Britain Spitfire by Tamiya...reminds one just how small[...]
