Been on travel since my last post, so no new modeling. To warm up to one of my many started but unfinished kits, I thought I'd post a few builds from the last two years. This is Tamiya's BF 109 E4/7 kit, decorated as Black 8 of 8./JG [...]
This is my best guess at what this plane looked like. Opinions vary on this plane. Is it V3 or V4? Is the color silver paint, natural metal, natural metal with a tinted clear coat, light grey, or RLM 02? So, I just chose what I liked. I wen[...]
With this I clean the slate of my “back catalog” of recent builds, which are at an all time low rate of production due to various life chores...

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 [...]
