By all means not the biggest one of my sins of last year. I´ve been in the process of finishing the Bf 109 STGB II prizes... yes, just waiting for our sponsors' decisions but I promise we´ll get back to it shortly. Better late than never... But I apologize, my dear friends . Anyway, this KUTA-build is actually not a GB non-finisher, as I originally intended to just build some parts of this along the four proper G-6:s I did finish! This is how the kit looked a few nights back. I started by trimming the interior parts to make them fit the slightly too narrow fuselage. This I did, and then forgot the build for a few days again. Last night I finished painting and assembling the interior, joined the fuselage halves, wings, radiator flaps and rudder parts - but didn´t take a picture . While browsing through Finnish Bf 109 decals I did find among them an extra AZmodel Erla- canopy. I´ll check if I can mate that with my previous, Revell G-10-to-G-6/AS build I did with its original, rather lousy canopy piece. It should look better, if I can make it fit. The Finnish Air Force was supplied with, possibly in an error, two G-6/AS- high altitude versions in late June 1944. The Revell build is decorated as MT-463 from 2./HLeLv 24 and this AZmodel build will be MT-471 from 3./HLeLv 24. To my knowlegde, there are no pics of either of them in their wartime appearance. This decal sheet has a painting diagram for -463 and I´ll go with that for the -471 too. Pics to be added... Best regards, V-P
