Tamiya 1/72 Messerschmitt Bf-109G-6.
I finished this up early last month, but didn't feel like shooting it until today.

This nostalgia build (again?!) is a [...]
The starting point is the SBS-model resin conversion kit mentioned elsewhere on iModeler. It is designed to use Tamiyas new Bf109G-6.
Instead of filling in a lot of words here, might I interest you with a link to the full build over in [...]
So, some of you may have noticed over at the Eduard website that they have an actual historian writing their Wildcat history (with more to come). That would be yours truly, who was asked by Vlad if I would do that, and said [...]
