Well this is my second WIP thread, and will be my fourth model of the year. Many will not count my Revells Micro Wings as they are small simple kits, but as a returnee to modelling, they have helped me get back in the swing of things, and also my Tornado GR1 1/144. So in a bigger scale (and more than likely the scale I will stay with due to space/finance etc) this is my 1/72 Messerschmit BF 109E 4, from Airfix. I hope I am not biting off more than I can chew, as I have read about wing dihedralm issues, problems removing some of the smaller parts from the sprues etc, and also the fact that the Airfix painting instructions are incorrect apparently for the aircraft designation the kit portrays. For these reasons, I am going to be very careful removing any parts (something I thought would make sense all the time anyway), and it is also going to painted in a scheme I decide upon, using the kit decals, so will in effect be fictitious. So, as I am likely to start this tomorrow, for now, there is only the obligatory Box and sprue shot. More to follow tomorrow hopefully.
I, like many others, got the 1:48 Airfix Club Messerschmitt Bf109 this year. It's not 'my' scale or era, but the bits are bigger than what I'm used to and I may consider swapping to this scale when age takes its toll on my eyes. However, I fancy doing something with the kit seeing as it was free, but I'd rather do a genuine Luftwaffe scheme than the kit RAF or Japanese schemes. Anybody got any ideas what I could choose (along with decal options - Hannants?). I think it's an E3/7 model. I'd like to do something around the British Invasion / Battle of Britain timescale. We're these around then? Thanks in advance.
