Fujimi Bf109K-4 1/48

Hi,

 

Witj my Emil finished and my Fredrich well on the way to being finished I thought I might be able to squeeze another build in before the GB closes.

 

I would have liked to have built Hasegawas 1/48 K-4 but U could not find one for sensible money.. The fujimi kit gets a MID so I think I can run with that...

the kit is unstated and I have a CMK resin cockpit floating around for it as well. 

 

Squadrons Bf 109 in action part 2 has a nice colour illustration for a late machine in late war colours on the back cover.. I think I might run with that for a scheme.. 

 

Ill begin once the Fredrich is complete.

 

Cheers

So with the Fredrich finished and another win by the AB's secured I have turned my attention to the Kurfürst...

 

I have assembled the bare fuselage including the cowl inserts which needed careful gluing to get good alignment. I've also filled the panel lines which fujimi have in place for a late Gustav.. the Tooling serves for both a late G10 and a K-4. A quick consult of my references helped me fill in the Gustav specific panel lines... 

 

I've also assembled most of the resin tub and sidewalls and given them a base coat of RLM66

CMK's resin is nice but TBH with a Bit of elbow grease the kit parts would look very good as well..

 

here is the The tub in closeup...
