  1. The landing gear is stable. When I shot the new pics this year and moved the model around for posing it didn´t do any harm. Also didn´t feel any stronger wobbling or whatsoever.
  2. Not really patched up, was a common late war camo colour mix, unpainted wing undersides were also common. Didn´t take that long, my dad has a lot of Luftwaffe camo experience after building dozens of 109s and 190s
  3. no, but worth a try in the future
  4. looking forward to it a longer while ago my dad built the ProModeler E-5 too https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234985490-anti-ship-warfare148-dornier-do217e-5-kg100-new-pics-added/&tab=comments#comment-2047347
  5. already covered up, gonna post the finished model tomorrow
  6. yes, back to Tamiya tape do you build the Revell/ProModeler kit or the ICM one?
  7. and also Gunze RLM70 applied, splinter camo done Won´t use masks from LF Models anymore, they were partly insufficient and my dad had to use some additional Tamiya tape for the upper side. Furthermore they didn´t stick that good to the model but nevertheless tore away some paint when my dad removed the masks.

  8. tape partly didn´t prevent some fume getting in the clear area... DSC_0003 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0004 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  9. The Hasegawa 109s are still good kits, but as it seems Hasegawa doesn´t release later models (like G-6/14, G-10, K-4) anymore. During the last years I´ve seen only at max a G-4 released and the other versions are more and more hard to find as second hand kits. Yes they did have panel lines there, but due to filling and sanding the fuselage halves joint you hardly see it on the model. There´s the panel wash discussion again on most real aircraft you don´t see hardly any panel lines, also on the 109 because they were usually filled and sealed. Nevertheless my dad does a wash, brings the model more to life and it doesn´t look like so toyish. He recently turned 71. thanks a lot guys!

    lovely job, good to see a different scheme
  11. thanks! The wire is supposed to look that way. When the mast was on the Erla canopy, the antenna wire was connected with the canopy locking system and was only tensioned when the pilot locked the canopy. My dad and I found this out about 1-2 years ago. Always something to learn. This Croatian G-14/AS is a nice example, wire hangs through because the canopy isn´t locked. https://www.asisbiz.com/il2/Bf-109G/JG2(Kroat)/pages/Messerschmitt-Bf-109G14AS-Erla-2-Lovacko-Jato-Vladimir-Sandtner-Croatia-16th-Apr-1945-03.html Here´s a video of a freshly restored G-14, move to 06:50 there you can see how the wire loosens when the pilot unlocks the canopy.
