  1. Hurricane and Bf 109G-6 in Finnish service that is. Originally I wanted to build a J-21 and J-22 in 1/48, but as this GB ended running parallel with the Stuka STGB this wasn't longer an option so I chosen some easy to build kits - the Arma Hobby Hurricane and the Tamiya Bf 109G-6 instead, but also because these two types are not yet represented in this GB. This is the First: The Hurricanes where flown to Finland in February 1940 flying via Scotland and Sweden, having the Finnish markings white overpainted and with a civil registration. There are different opinions if the Hurricane had civil registration applied or not so I came to my own conclusion. First there is this picture of Hurricane HU460 shortly after its arrival in Finland, photographed in March 1940. Specially the first picture looks like it has a removed or overpainted civil registration OH-IPL. But then there is this picture showing HU452 on its way to Finland at a stop in Scotland. It has the overpainted markings but no civil registration. On the other hand, this Blenheim has the civil registration in place, also flown to Finland in February 1940. Now this could mean that the picture of HU452 was taken before the registration was applied, most likely only needed for the landing in Sweden or it was applied only on the port side of the aircraft as it was just for one flight. So I will paint my build like this. And only on the port side until someone has some evidence that it was on the starboard side as well. And as earlier mentioned, I will use the Arma Hobby kit with a few add-ons. I will also use some 5-spoke wheels which I have in the stash. And the Last: Actually not the very last as the Bf-109G-6 had its last flight in Finland in 1954 which is remarkable as the build quality of German aircraft later in the war was very poor as the expectation was they don't last very long! My chosen subject is Bf 109G-6 MT-505 of PLeLv 41 belonging to Lentorykmentti 4 with special "War Games" marking applied in August 1950. It does has a bit of a different look in the olive-green colours. And as mentioned, the kit I use is the new Tamiya offering. This will need a bit of kit bashing and I intend to utilize some AZ Model 109 parts for the sand filter (which had been fitted to all the Finnish 109s), Canopy and tall rudder. Cheers, Peter
  2. Another project, another Bf 109 in 1:48. This time is a Bf 109G-6 in Swiss colours, which didn't differ much between the regular Luftwaffe ones except for the use of the white cross over red backgrounds. Decals will come from Aeromaster's 1:48 "Foreign 109s." The Aeromaster sheet ins from 1997, so it was designed for the Hasegawa G-6. I hope the red band is able to cover the spine of the Hobby Boss kit without issues. Photos: Box:
  3. I'm not sure which Finnish Gustav I will end up with. (Yes I do!) The thing is, by keeping busy with my hobby, I don't smoke, so I need something to do while the Polikarpov Po-2 sets and dries... I hope to keep up my usual high standards (Ha!) and build a little Messerschmitt...I haven't built one since I was a kid, so this will be fun. The Finnish aspect gives it an interesting..hmmm...twist. A popular dance in Helsinki, or so I've heard. The Finnish Twist. Tuleva vauva, tekisinkään kierre! I am tempted to build I am building the one on the middle since it is post-war and includes both the new Finnish camo as well as the older German style. Plus, the roundels supplied are in perfect register. So why not? Too bad Finland never joined NATO... Note how the port profile has a tropical filter and the others do not. Is this accurate? Some interior work...I've dropped the contrast a bit so you can see it better. And a nifty little cockpit that came in many little parts...11, actually. And so it goes... --John
  4. Photos of my latest model, a Bf 109G-6 with markings for Erich Hartmann´s aircraft. I used Hasegawa´s painting instructions instead of the kit supplied ones, and a real life photo to prove this aircraft didn´t have the fuel tank, its rack, and the two underwing cannons Hobby Boss tells you to use. Here´s the work in progress thread:

  7. Bf 109 G-6 flown by Frenchman Rene Darbois, an interesting story behind his career can be found on various websites, suffice to say he basically joined the Luftwaffe to escape across to the Allies and this depicts the aircraft he did it in! A nice build, I had problems airbrushing the camo scheme, mainly due to inexperience and the heat, so its ended up being a 'near as dammit' rendition! See the build thread in the Bf109 GB. Inner flaps are in fully down 'cold start' position...... ahem!
