  1. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my first completed model of the year, the 1/72 AZ Model Bf-109 G-14AS "new tool 2020". No changes have been made to the external shape and dimensions, but the interior parts have been modified for a much better fit. Both the cockpit/fuselage and the wing/fuselage joints are much easier to assemble, literally 'klicking in place'. The boxing of the G-14AS is identical to the contents of a G-10 kit. That means it is not entirely correct, as the G-14AS had two filler caps relocated. Previous boxings of AZ's G-14AS included additiona
  2. Good afternoon, colleagues. Today I want to offer you a review of the long-known model from the company Academy-Bf-109 G-14. On improvements. I changed the inflows under the chassis to Italery ones from " stocks" I changed the propeller, tail wings, wheels and tank from AZ(remnants from the previous Assembly) Armament and Pitot tube from Master In the cockpit, the pilot from the Zvezda and the sight from the QB The prototype is Jacob Vogel's plane, which made an emergency landing on the British side of the front in the summer of 44. stencil from AZ, identification mark
  3. Good day, colleagues. For review, I propose a freshly completed assembly of the next trainer aircraft in my collection. Bf-109 G-12 based on Bf-109 G-6. Model. The assembly went off with a bang. The only thing that raised at least some questions was the flashlight. Not "on clicks", of course, still LND. But the fit of the parts is at a good level, the putty is at a minimum. A good study of the cockpit (which is still not visible; () Of the add-ons - only a pitot tube from Master. Prototype. The prototype was the "White 60" captured by the Americans in 1945. Coloring - Gunze, Akan
  4. Bf-109 | 1/72 | Tamiya Lt.Av. Ioan Di Cezare, Romania | Karpovka-Stalingrad, November 1942 Finished this on June 21, 2020. My first Tamiya kit, it may have been one of the best kits I've ever put together. The surface detail is incredible, as good (or maybe better) than the Eduard kits I've built and everything fit very well with no issues at all. I had next to no seam work to do and the kit decals, which I've heard many complaints about, seemed to be just fine for me. The Romanian marking decals are by RB productions and were superb. This subject i
  5. Bf-109G-14 | 1/72 | Hasegawa Hptm. Erich Hartmann, Pilot | 4./ JG52, Csór, Hungary, October 1944 I finished this on 5/17/2020. It is one of a two-in-one Hasagawa "Finnish Aces" kit my wife gave me for Christmas. The two Finnish planes looked so much alike that I decided to make one Erich Hartmann's "White 1". I've wanted to do one of his black tulip aircraft for quite a while because my dad built Jo-Han's interpretation of Erich Hartmann's "Double Chevron" and it hung on my ceiling throughout my childhood. In fact, it was the only German fighter on my ceiling, so to
  6. Bf-109G-6 | 1/72 | Hasegawa Ylikersantti (Staff Sgt.) Hemmo Leino | 1/HLeLv 34, Kymi, Finland, June 1944 Finished this one on 5/31/2020. It is one of a two-in-one Hasagawa "Finnish Aces" kit my wife gave me for Christmas. The G-14 in the kit became Erich Hartmann's "White 1" (https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235075175-bf-109g-14-172-hasegawa-erich-hartmann-white-1/) From the Eduard instructions: "Hemmo Kulervo Leino was born at Helsinki on April 4th, 1921. He received flying training in 1939-41 at was posted on September
  7. Hello! I'm working on Hemmo Leino's Bf-109G-6 from June 1944 (MT-423) from Hasegawa's Finnish Messerschmitt combo. The instructions are black and white, and I can't quite tell what paint pattern there is. Did Leino's 109 have a soft-edged splinter camouflage on the wings? Using a ruler on the instructions, the lines look straight, but looking at painting instructions for other a/c in his unit in summer of '44 show a combination of soft-edged splinter and soft-edged "free hand" camo. I downloaded Eduard's instruction sheet for their 109 kit with Leino's plane in it a
  8. Dear fellow Britmodellers, another Bf-109 fresh off my workbench - the "Red Tulip" (aka "Green 4") of JG 52. This particular aircraft was allegedly piloted by famous ace Hermann Graf. Decals from Eagle Cals, painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. My attempt to paint the nose tulip using self-cut masks failed due to the curvatures of the front section - I struggled to get the masks lined up straight. Instead I used the decals provided by Eagle Cals. They worked well, although cuts had to be made around the air intakes to make them conform to the surface struc
  9. Hello everybody, It's been nearly a year and a half since I posted a build, either in progress or finished. Well, several kits landed on the bench but none has reached completion. I had unsuccessful attempts at trying to do something more than just follow instructions, glue and paint. I tried using photoetch, these parts shouldn't be called PE but UFO's. Then back to a relaxing Tamiya but there was no fun there. I still needed something just a tiny little bit outside of my comfort zone. So what about an Airfix 1/48 Bf-109E-7 in a trop scheme. No decal for the control panel so some detai
  10. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my first completed model in 2020, quite a common subject - Fine Molds' 1/72 Bf-109 G10. This build is part of my "stash reduction program", aimed at kits that exist in multiple numbers/boxings in my stash. I used Exito Decals "The Last In Line (ED72006)" to represent "Yellow 6" of II/JG52. II./JG52 operated from airfields in Austria (Seyring, Hörsching, Zeltweg) in April 1945. The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, weathering with Winsor & Newton artist oils. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel.
  11. I grew up reading Tintin. I have been wanting to build this 109 for a long, long, time....The kit I will be using is an old Airfix Heller kit (I think) that I bought in a job-lot sale. All the parts are there except for the instruction sheet, so I'll be winging it! I will be using the Blue Rider decal sheet from the second series of publications. Remember, the first printing had Tintin flying a Heinkel with the old-style Bordurian 'hourglass' design. I will not be attempting a remodelling of the pilot to resemble our intrepid boy-reporter and faithful pooch. Fun, fun, fun...
  12. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's another AZ Model Bf-109 (#17 in my collection) representing the aircraft of Lt. Wöffen of 6./JG 27 in March 1945 at Rheine-Hopsten airfield. The main differences of the Erla G-10s compared to those built at WNF or Regensburg plant consisted of a new engine cowling (“Type 110”), differently shaped gun throughs, a wider oil cooler, missing chin bulges and different rudder. AZ failed to replicate some of the small changes to this particular version, such as the position of filler caps, but only the 'experts' will detect them. More concerning is t
  13. Bf-109G-6 | 1/72 | Airfix Fliegerkompanie 7 | Swiss Air Force | 1945 I finished this on July 29th, 2019. It is the much maligned Airfix kit. I had to wait for some enamel to cure on my Banshee and decided to give this one a try. I'd wanted to do a Swiss Bf-109 since seeing one as a computer desktop wallpaper, but heard bad things about this kit. After seeing @John D.C. Masters build of this kit and reading how much fun it was, I decided to give it a shot. It took me about 2 days as there wasn't a lot to it. It was ready to paint within 2 hours. Much
  14. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my latest, another Erla Bf-109 G10 from AZ's new boxing. Photo etch from Brengun, pitot tube from Master, decals from Eagle Cals. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Thanks for your interest. Best greetings from Vienna.
  15. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is my latest Bf-109, the Erla production G10, released by AZ Models in spring this year. This version has never been available as an injection-molded kit in 72 scale before. The main characteristics of the Erla-production 109s (compared to those built at WNF or Regensburg plant) consist of differently shaped gun throughs, a wider oil cooler, missing chin bulges and different rudder. I diverted from AZ's paint instructions by using RLM81/82 instead of 83/75. The fuselage number is provided in Green, while in my opinion, it should b
  16. With the broadening of the criteria for eligible countries one of my favourites has now become possible to build and that is Yugoslavia. I have been interested in the Yugoslav Air Force for a while, not least because of it's very interesting mix of aircraft it has operated from a variety of different sources including Western countries such as the UK and USA and also the USSR, not to mention aircraft which were captured by partisans from the Germans and then used against them. Another source was aircraft given to them as a form of war reparations payment and the example I'm going to build fall
  17. Dear fellow Britmodellers, may I present my latest work, AZ Model's Bf-109 K4, built with addition of Brengun photo etch and Master Model pitot tube. Decals from the box, representing an aircraft of 9./JG53, based in Reichenbach/Saxony, in May 1945. I painted according to kit instructions, using Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel (of IGM Cars & Bikes). The AZ Model Bf-109s have received some criticism regarding the shape of the nose. In case you are interested, please have a look here: I built without modifications, an
  18. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is AZ Model's Messerschmitt Bf-109 G6, built from the 'Joy Pack' boxing, with Brengun photo etch and pitot from Master Model added. Decals are a mix of USK (wing markings), Hasegawa (fuselage code number), AZ Model (Italian flags) and Sky Models (small '8'). The aircraft represented served with 3. Squadrilla, 2. Gruppo Caccia, based at Villafranca airfield in late 1944. This build would have not been possible without the valuable help of fellow Britmodeller Luis Alfonso, who not only tracked down the USK decal sheet, but also a vital referenc
  19. Bf.109G-2 Weekend Edition (84148) 1:48 Eduard The G variant of the 109, colloquially known as the Gustav was one of the primary fighters available to the Luftwaffe during the closing years of WWII, and saw extensive active service, all the while being upgraded to combat the increasing Allied superiority in the air. Happily for the Allies, the supply of experienced pilots was fast running out, so as good as the upgrades were, they couldn't make an appreciable difference to the outcome. The G-2 differed from the initial G-1 insofar as it eschewed the pressurised co
  20. Nice new tool Airfix kit. Built out of the box, nice and easy fit of parts, slightly tight so a bit of sanding on contact points eases building process. Gunze colours and Tamiya varnishes.
  21. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is AZ Model's "Limited Edition" boxing (AZ7488) in "Romanian Air Force" markings. I added Brengun photo etch, Master pitot tube and resin wheels from AML. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Greetings from Vienna.
  22. Dear fellow Britmodellers, following the Photobucket disaster that made all my images posted to Britmodeller disappear, I've changed to a new hosting site named "Village Photos". The model I'm showing you today is AZ Models' Bf-109 G14-AS in markings of Italian ANR, Milan/Malpensa airfield, 1945. Original photo here: It was built with the addition of Master metal gun barrels and Brengun photo etch, decals from the box. I was a bit unhappy with AZ Model's decal for the "Blue 1" - it does have an off-center white shadow (only visible when you've slid the decal off the ba

  24. I think this one is done, Its Eduard's 1/48 BF-109E-4 with a mix of kit, Aeromaster and Techmod decals. Painted with Tamiya acrylics and weathered with pastels and oils. Hope you like, Colin Thanks for looking, Colin
  25. Here comes another 1/72 AZ Model Bf-109. This is the G-14AS version, built with Brengun photo etch and Rob Taurus vacu. Pitot tube from Master Model. Decals from Model Alliance "Defending The Reich's Skies Pt.2", representing a machine of JG77, early 1945. On that sheet, the code number "1" is represented in Green; a colour profile in MMP "Bf-109 Late Versions" shows the number in Red. I followed this colour profile, painting the "1" in Red using paper mask. Of note is the patchy appearance: Front cowling is RLM76, fuselage is RLM84, rudder is RLM
