  1. Morning all,just finished for the Matchbox GB is their 109e,these are rare beasts these day's and I'd never built one in my youth so forty quid lighter this arrived in great condition but useless decal's.Techmod to the rescue and chose to depict Von Werra's famous aircraft which was downed during the Battle of Britain,he was captured but later escaped in Canada and made it back to Germany served on the Russian front but was killed in an accident off the Dutch coast flying the F4 variant of the 109.Many thank's for looking in.
  2. Hi mates! For those that haven't been following the WIP, here is my first model of the iconic Messerschmitt Bf 109. That's right, my very first in nearly 50 years of modelling military aircraft. Why did I wait so long? I don't know - I haven't built a Fw 190 or Me 262 either! Project: Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4 Kit: Airfix Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4 (kit number A01008) Scale: 1:72 (because I don't want my thumbs to turn into sausages!) Decals: From the kit, representing the aircraft flown into a field in Love's Farm, Marden, Kent by Oberleutnant Franz von Werra, Gruppen-Adjutant I/JG 3, September 5, 1940. Also, swastikas from Techmod sheet 72101. Photoetch: Eduard Detail Set No. 73 453 Masks: Eduard Set CX 331 Resin: BarracudaCast BR72091 Messerschmitt B,C,D,E Main Wheels Paint: Gunze H70 RLM02, H67 RLM65, H64 RLM71, H65 RLM70, H416 RLM66, H90 Clear Red, H94 Clear Green; Tamiya XF-69 NATO Black, XF-2 Flat White; Testors 1180 Flat Steel,1149 Flat Black, 1790 Silver FS17178, 1795 Jet Exhaust; Floquil 110004 Crystal-Cote; Future; Alclad Klear Kote Flat Weathering: All weathering was done with pastel chalk dust, and is sealed underneath the top coat of flat varnish. No panel line wash was done externally; a light burnt umber wash was used in the cockpit. Improvements/Corrections Applied the Eduard PE set to the cockpit, including the canopy retention cable. PE hand holds on front windscreen. Eduard PE used for both main wheel wells and landing gear doors. Replaced kit wheels with resin set from Barracuda Studios. Lowered the ailerons by 11 degrees to match typical landing configuration (leading edge slats were previously stowed by der Erksters). Scratch built the starboard wing fairing attachment plate (to match the detail that Airfix forgot, even though it was properly moulded on the port side). Radio mast from kit was broken; replacement part from Academy kit was shortened and its profile altered. Added antenna and lead-in wires with 0.005" diameter Nitinol wire. Build thread: Link What a sweet little kit! I only encountered a few areas that were strange - for example I had to remove the alignment pegs from the wings in order to get the top and bottom halves to line up properly. Once I did that, the alignment was very good, and the wing assembly joined the main fuselage with the proper dihedral. I also had to remove an alignment peg from one of the tailplane struts so I could mount it in the correct position. The propeller can be mounted either way - you have to be careful to make sure that the straighter edges of the prop blades are the leading edges. Very little putty was used on this kit. Some of the small parts were quite difficult to remove from the sprues (I was using a new #11 blade to carefully cut through the sprue gate). I only broke one part, namely the aerial mast which I replaced with an altered piece from an Academy kit. All told, I really enjoyed putting this little guy together! By the way - no attempt was made to "fill" the panel lines with anything other than the normal amount of paint that I used in airbrushing the camouflage scheme. The next time you read someone saying this kit has "trenches" please direct them to this build, give them a light tap on the head, and tell them to stop believing all the nonsense you find on the Internet. Except for this thread, of course. The paint scheme and markings are of course from the famous 109 shot down over Kent. I think I represented the aircraft with the proper colours and weathering, at least based on current research. A fellow Britmodeller sent me a copy of the crash report which included descriptions of some of the colours; for instance the black and white spinner and the fact that this aircraft had no armor protection in the canopy. Enough of all this stuff - here are the pictures! Enjoy! Edit - My fellow modellers pointed out some errors in my build, which I quickly corrected. Updated pictures on further down the thread. Thanks mates! Cheers, Bill (who can never decide what to build next...)
  3. I am going to be starting Franz Von Werra's famous aircraft soon (in it's un-crashed state,) and began wondering about his second plane... the one that cost him his life. From what I gather, it was an Bf109 F-. After doing some Goggling, I haven't been able to come up with any photos or any real reference to this plane, other than in passing comments. Does anyone have any info, or can anyone point me in the right direction? After I finish this one, I would like to do his second one as well.
