  1. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 AZ Model Bf-109 G10 Erla in markings of II. Gruppo Caccia ANR, in Aviano, early 1945. This aircraft was flown by Cap. Ugo Drago, Italy's third most successful Italian fighter pilot of World War II (25 victories). I built with Brengun photo-etch, Rob Taurus vacu, Master gun barrels and pitot tube and Sky Models decals. Photos by Wolfgang Rabel. For the color scheme, I refered to Eduard's instructions of their 48 scale kit (82164). The model was painted with Mr.Hobby acrylics. The markings were cobbled together from various sources - the Balkenkreuze are from the AZ Model box, the Italian flags and "Black 7" from Sky Models ("German Aircraft in Italy", SKY 72-024). The Werknummer (491 353) is not included and was taken from Print Scale's "Bf-109 Kurf├╝rst (72-145)" sheet containing individual serial numbers which I painstakingly applied one by one. Thank you very much for your interest in this topic.
  2. Dear fellow Britmodellers, after Eduard's announcement to expand their 1/72 Bf-109 range to later variants I decided to reduce my stash of AZ Model Bf-109's. This is the G10 WNF boxing, built with photo etch from Brengun, vacu canopy from Rob Taurus, pitot tube from Master and decal markings from Eagle Cals, representing an aircraft of II./JG 52 in 1945. I painted with Mr.Hobby acrylics and weathered with artist oils. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Best greetings from Austria! Roman
  3. Dear fellow Britmodellers, I'm proud to present the latest Brengun release, the 1/72 Yak 1B (aka 1M in Polish service). I built mostly out of the box, but added a vacu sliding hood (Rob Taurus) and replaced the antenna & pitot tube. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, representing the aircraft of A.F. Lavrenov, a Soviet ace with 22 confirmed kills. The kit is very well detailed and builds without major problems. I'd say it is the best Brengun kit I have ever tried myself on. Highly recommended! Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. # # Thanks for your interest, best greetings from Vienna! Roman
  4. 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 be Blue instead. I cut a mask using the decal sheet as a template and sprayed the Blue "2". Details were enhanced using Brengun photo etch, Master pitot tube, and Rob Taurus vacu. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Thanks for your interest, best greetings from Vienna!
  5. Another Bf-109 finished - this is the Finemolds K4 boxing "Hartmann's Last Combat". Rob Taurus vacu canopy and Eduard photo etch added. Pitot tube from Master Models. The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Being over-ambitious, I pretended I could mask and spray the 'Black Tulip'. I soon realized that I could not achieve any straight lines with Tamiya tape due to all those bumps and warts on the 109's nose. In the end I settled for the kit's decals. They were rather thick and didn't confirm to the contures well. I had to use generous amounts of setting solution, which in return caused the decals to 'melt' and I was facing the same problem of shaky lines again. Touch-ups were done freehand, using Vallejo paints. Thanks for lookin'! Have a good day! Roman
  6. Hello and thanks for your interest, this is another marking option from AZ Model's latest G-10 "Diana" kit. It represents 'Gigi', a machine of II/JG 52, in the closing weeks of the war. I could not find a historic photograph of this machine, so I had to relate to AZ Model's paint instructions and a color profile in a Kagero book (JG 52) respectively. Photo etch parts from Brengun, vacu canopy from Rob Taurus. Painted with Gunze acrylics. Weathering with pastel chaks and artist's oils. Greetings from Vienna!

  7. Hello and thanks for your interest, this is Hasegawa's 1/72 Bf-109 G14 with Resin engine and photo etch from Aires. The vacu canopy is from Rob Taurus. The pitot tube is a metal item from Fine Molds Accessories. Photographs by Mr. Wolfgang Rabel of IGM Cars & Bikes - a big THANK YOU! The model represents a machine of JG52, photographed after the end of hostilities in May 1945 at Neubiberg. Pictures suggest a quite faded camoflage, I tried to replicate this by adding a drop of White to each base colour. Painted with acryclics from the Gunze/Mr.Hobby range. Weathered with artist oils. This was no quick build; the kit was started back in April 2014. I had to put the model aside a couple of times, getting bored with numerous dry fit runs, sanding, filing and shaping. In the end it turned out quite okay, but several important lessons were learned during construction, of which my future models will (hopefully) benefit. With best wishes for the new year, greetings from Vienna, Austria Roman Schilhart
