After finishing the Revell 1:32 Fw 190A-8/R11, I decided to tackle Tamiya's Bf 109E-3 in 1:48. Started it on 22/4 and finished it earlier today. I like that Tamiya provided the option for the flaps and slats down, it gives character to the model. And here are two photos of my Airfix Bf 109E-4/N in 1:48, built too as Adolf Galland's aircraft.
After becoming frustrated with ICM/Revell´s Mustang Mk.III in 1:48 (and sending it to my spares box with most pieces on their sprue), I decided to pull this model out of my stash and build it as a relaxing build, which it was! The model offers the flaps and slats in the down position, and you can pose them up by cutting their respective mounting tabs. However, while removing the tab of one slat, I also removed a chunk of it, which was repaired by filling the area with CA. I also feared that, due to how thin the plastic on the slats was, that the plastic would damage if I used regular glue, so I used CA to glue the slats.
I have the Hs123 from Gaspatch in the stash and looks like it will be next up. I intend to build Galland’s aircraft in the RLM 61/62/63 over 65 scheme. Looking at the colour call outs, I cannot discern the colour of the upper and lower wing and support leading edges? I thought RLM 70? TIA and regards,
Someone offered me this kit as an alternative to the more expensive Hasegawa 109E with a Galland resin body, so I wanted to know your opinions about it regarding the type of plastic, the quality of the decals, fit, and particularly the size of the sprue gates (if you had any troubles removing the parts from the sprues). Any comment is appreciated.
