  1. Howdy! I am getting ready to build the Tamiya 1/48 Bf 109G-6, kit 61117 and I want to paint do it in Swiss markings. I already have a decal set for it, but need some help figuring out what colors to use for the upper surfaces. The aircraft I am doing is marked J-704. Apparently, this aircraft had an experimental camo scheme applied by the Swiss. It is a green and brown(ish) scheme, but the decal set doesn't indicate what colors they were. All of the photos I can find are of the original German scheme, pre-accident. So, does anyone here know what colors were used? Thanks a bunch in advance. Brett G
  2. Hallo I want to ask you all, about help for building a perfect Eduard 109 Gustav. The Gustav 6 version I have Brasin cockpit, Engine and weapons and wheels too. 8268 Kit number https://www.eduard.com/out/media/8268.pdf 648 140 Brasin Cockpit https://www.eduard.com/out/media/648140.pdf 648 141 Brasin Engine & Guns https://www.eduard.com/out/media/648141.pdf 648 148 Brasin Gun pods https://www.eduard.com/out/media/648148.pdf 648 149 Brasin wheels https://www.eduard.com/out/media/648149.pdf This is basically all I have. Which marking is absolutly secondary now. The first question is, does anybody have any experience how to install this brasin equipment in the plastic fuselage. How much to grind? I had several times brasin equipment, but noticed a horrible fit or unfit to install anyway. Now, before I loose in vain any sweat, any blood and any tears I ask the community. You understand it, the perfect Gustav I want to create! Thanks in forward for reply. Happy modelling
  3. Bf 109G-6 R6 Trop Fw. Heinrich Bartels II./ JG 27 Kalamaki Airfield, Greece, November 1943 Hot on the heels go my G-4 is another Trop, this time a G-6 of JG27 flown by Heinrich Bartels in 1943. I really enjoyed the last build and this one promises to provide me with a more challenging paint scheme to get my head around. As always, a picture of the box contents plus some extras to help along the way. The Look plus set worked out slightly cheaper than buying the Look set and separate canopy mask - so effectively the resin wheels and exhausts are freebies! I also bought some spinner masks to help with that spiral.
  4. As someone a bit obsessed with Bf 109s, I was surprised by two things I realised recently. Firstly, I finished my 19th build and still didn't have on my shelf one of the iconic G-6s with silly eyes painted on the bulges. Secondly, I've been sitting on the new Tamiya 1/72 for so long I was questioning my loyalties by no building it. Fortunately, the latter includes decals to solve the former! So here it is, my 20th Bf 109 build: Bf 109G-6 of JG51 based in Bulgaria in 1944, with the obligatory eyes. Tamiya's decals for the eyes are very well designed and they fit accurately, but are a bit thick. Still, painting yellow seems to be the bane of my modelling time (unfortunate for a Lufwaffe fan), so I went with the decals as the lesser evil. I'll say that they snuggled down far better than I feared, but still not as well as I had hoped. Kit is Tamiya 1/72, OOB except the radio wire and canopy holding wire. All brush painted with Xtracrylix, except for rattle can priming and generic/internal colours that are Humbrol or Revell. I bit the bullet with this project and gave it a final Matt coat. I have been avoiding doing this as I haven't found a Matt that doesn't cloud or go white and I've been terrified of ruining projects (plus I quite like glossy planes), but I finally got some "Winsor and Newton Galleria Acrylic Matt Varnish". After some testing and practice I gritted my teeth and painted it on this 109 and... pfew, it looks OK! I also tried something a bit different for the photography, still room to improve here.
  5. Possibly not the most approrpiate build to post on VE day but it's Bank holiday and I have time to take pictures, so here it is: my recently completed Bf 109G-6 of the Royal Hungarian Air Force "Red Puma" squadron. Couldn't resist the colourful tail on this one! The kit is 1/72 AZ Models "Danubian users" boxing but I adapted the camouflage and ID markings as I was suspicious of the box art instructions showing a non-standard scheme I could not verify. So here it is in standard German (WNF) pattern. I had some slight mishaps with sections of the vinyl mask lifting where the canopy is curved so I got primer on the transparent parts, but it seemes to have cleared up OK after scraping off and applying varnish. All hand painted except the primer layer. Main camouflage colours are Xtracrylix, rest is Humbrol or Revell. For some reason the RLM 74 always comes out looking far lighter and more green when I take pictures of my models than how I see them. I like how the Xtracrylix brush on and how they look on the model on my shelf, but not so much how they turn out in pictures! Oh well! I'm terrified to ask if anyone can vouch for their colour accuracy because I don't want to go through learning to brush paint yet another brand. Thanks for looking!
  6. Hurricane and Bf 109G-6 in Finnish service that is. Originally I wanted to build a J-21 and J-22 in 1/48, but as this GB ended running parallel with the Stuka STGB this wasn't longer an option so I chosen some easy to build kits - the Arma Hobby Hurricane and the Tamiya Bf 109G-6 instead, but also because these two types are not yet represented in this GB. This is the First: The Hurricanes where flown to Finland in February 1940 flying via Scotland and Sweden, having the Finnish markings white overpainted and with a civil registration. There are different opinions if the Hurricane had civil registration applied or not so I came to my own conclusion. First there is this picture of Hurricane HU460 shortly after its arrival in Finland, photographed in March 1940. Specially the first picture looks like it has a removed or overpainted civil registration OH-IPL. But then there is this picture showing HU452 on its way to Finland at a stop in Scotland. It has the overpainted markings but no civil registration. On the other hand, this Blenheim has the civil registration in place, also flown to Finland in February 1940. Now this could mean that the picture of HU452 was taken before the registration was applied, most likely only needed for the landing in Sweden or it was applied only on the port side of the aircraft as it was just for one flight. So I will paint my build like this. And only on the port side until someone has some evidence that it was on the starboard side as well. And as earlier mentioned, I will use the Arma Hobby kit with a few add-ons. I will also use some 5-spoke wheels which I have in the stash. And the Last: Actually not the very last as the Bf-109G-6 had its last flight in Finland in 1954 which is remarkable as the build quality of German aircraft later in the war was very poor as the expectation was they don't last very long! My chosen subject is Bf 109G-6 MT-505 of PLeLv 41 belonging to Lentorykmentti 4 with special "War Games" marking applied in August 1950. It does has a bit of a different look in the olive-green colours. And as mentioned, the kit I use is the new Tamiya offering. This will need a bit of kit bashing and I intend to utilize some AZ Model 109 parts for the sand filter (which had been fitted to all the Finnish 109s), Canopy and tall rudder. Cheers, Peter
  7. Another project, another Bf 109 in 1:48. This time is a Bf 109G-6 in Swiss colours, which didn't differ much between the regular Luftwaffe ones except for the use of the white cross over red backgrounds. Decals will come from Aeromaster's 1:48 "Foreign 109s." The Aeromaster sheet ins from 1997, so it was designed for the Hasegawa G-6. I hope the red band is able to cover the spine of the Hobby Boss kit without issues. Photos: Box:
  8. I'm not sure which Finnish Gustav I will end up with. (Yes I do!) The thing is, by keeping busy with my hobby, I don't smoke, so I need something to do while the Polikarpov Po-2 sets and dries... I hope to keep up my usual high standards (Ha!) and build a little Messerschmitt...I haven't built one since I was a kid, so this will be fun. The Finnish aspect gives it an interesting..hmmm...twist. A popular dance in Helsinki, or so I've heard. The Finnish Twist. Tuleva vauva, tekisinkään kierre! I am tempted to build I am building the one on the middle since it is post-war and includes both the new Finnish camo as well as the older German style. Plus, the roundels supplied are in perfect register. So why not? Too bad Finland never joined NATO... Note how the port profile has a tropical filter and the others do not. Is this accurate? Some interior work...I've dropped the contrast a bit so you can see it better. And a nifty little cockpit that came in many little parts...11, actually. And so it goes... --John
  9. Photos of my latest model, a Bf 109G-6 with markings for Erich Hartmann´s aircraft. I used Hasegawa´s painting instructions instead of the kit supplied ones, and a real life photo to prove this aircraft didn´t have the fuel tank, its rack, and the two underwing cannons Hobby Boss tells you to use. Here´s the work in progress thread:

  12. Bf 109 G-6 flown by Frenchman Rene Darbois, an interesting story behind his career can be found on various websites, suffice to say he basically joined the Luftwaffe to escape across to the Allies and this depicts the aircraft he did it in! A nice build, I had problems airbrushing the camo scheme, mainly due to inexperience and the heat, so its ended up being a 'near as dammit' rendition! See the build thread in the Bf109 GB. Inner flaps are in fully down 'cold start' position...... ahem!
