My next project will be the AZ example of the Bf109F-4 in the colours of Joachim Marseille but I have a small question which hopefully someone can help with. The box art shows his machine in June 1942, Werk Number 8693, having a red rudder with the under nose cowling painted yellow. However my other source for this machine, from the Osprey Aviation series 'Bf109 Aces of North Africa', shows the same machine but without the yellow lower nose cowling, so which one is correct please? Regards Colin.
Another finish for 2018, the lovely Zvezda 1/72 BF109F built as one of Hans Joachim Marseille's planes. Paints were Mr Color and Alclad. Markings were a mix of aftermarket and tail kill markings from a truly horrible Mistercraft "kit". For this one I threw everything at it, resin guns, oil dot weathering, paint chipping with a prismacolor pencil, a funky way to simulate armoured glass and even tried to replicate yellow sand on the undercarriage. WIP is here. And finally, in a "I bought it so I'll use it" moment, a little plastic model, going round and round, just like a Zamboni... Cheers and a happy weekend to all. A
Ahh the end of another brain wrecking contract means I can indulge in the Zen that is 1/72 aircraft. First up in the new workspace(s) is this simple , snap fit but nicely detailed 109F: Markings will be Marseille's F courtesy of this truly horrible pile of misshapen styrene, got for 2 Euros! Well did you expect them to spell his name right for that? Pit has been assembled, given a good blast of Mr Paint RLM 66, bit of detail painting and some Eduard belts popped on: The sun is still shining, so I think it's dejeuner sur l'herbe time as we say in Basingstoke, a barbecued wagyu burger and cold Estrella are calling , mazeltov!

All done! many thanks to the many people who helped guide me in the right direction (especially with the colour matches) (tank152) and (Greased Lightning). The last photo shows an incomplete pic of the build. It is there to show the underside's weathering Cheers, John [/url] [/url]
