Hello folks - long time no post. I thought it was about time I dug out my account and shared a little work with you, as whilst no-one will remember me, I've lurked around for a long time... Here, to get the ball rolling is one of the famed Hermann Graf's early mounts, built from the delicious Eduard BF109 E1 ProfiPack, with a scheme from the late, great Jerry Crandall at EagleCals. Paint was a mix of AK Real Colour and Gunze, weathering with Abteilung 502 oils, although this was kept very light as this particular airframe was repainted after about 6 weeks of action. One final note - the Hakenkreuz has been digitally edited out, as my main platform is Instagram these days, and they're very, very hot on their community guidelines - if or not they make sense. Thanks for looking folks! My Instagram Account
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 structure, as well as some touch-up with brush paint. The result is far from perfect, but the best I could achieve! Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. + Best greetings from Vienna, Roman
Hasegawa´s Fw 190A-5/U7 kit 09976 built as Hermann Graf´s regular A-5 because I didn´t dare to use the resins included. I managed to remove a chunk of the wing early on the build, break the right side´s lightning bolt and part of the white trim on one of the tulips. While building the kit, I thought the only difference between Graf´s regular A-5 and his later U7 was only the cowling, painted entirely in yellow with the high altitude intakes, but it turned out that the A-5 didn´t have the outer cannons, and these were added to the kit. I was so fucused on the paint scheme that I didn´t realise the difference in armament. The model was brush painted with Revell Aqua 15/40/45/49/69/47 (RLM 04/70/02/65/74/75).
