Me 109 F2 Hannes Trautloft


Recommended Posts

I bought the 109 F6 Hasegawa 1/32. All models are Germans that I did with the camouflage RLM 74, 75, 76. To avoid repeating the model or the colors I intend to do a F2. The F6 is an F2 with different weapons. I'll make two or three changes. The model will be Bf109F of Hannes Trautloft-2, JG 54, 1942 Russia. Only the colors still do not know. There are many doubts as to the colors of the aircraft. Some say it was painted in RLM 76, 02 and 70. others with RLM 78, 79 and 70 still others with RLM 76, 79 and 70. Any help is welcome.

I made changes in F4 to a F2 with the help of a book of the Squadron and the instruction sheet of Zvezda's Me 109 F2. I deleted some panels at the bottom of the wings and open wells of the landing gear.

Eliminated the line of the panels does not belong to the series F.

I added some cables.

Good progress!

I build an F-2 last year - panels and gear bay openings caused some concern - but we got there in the end. Personally I think the 'F's are the best looking 109s by far.

Another advance in the Me 109.

I painted the propeller hub (still with Future, missing matt varnish).

Then I glued wings, fuselage and rear stabilizers.

And then simulates the rivets. It is the first time I do. I made some mistakes but for the next already know how to avoid them.

Lack of space in my showcase forced me to stop with the models in 1/32 scale and back again to the scale 1/48.

I found a alternative solution and I'll, at least, try to finish the F2.

I painted the front of the fuselage and stripes of yellow.

Do not like what I did on the engine cover. Yellow painted again. Also painted a patch of green that was forgotten.

Ian,

I think two more days and finish the model.

If I can not continue in the GB, I end model in the «Work in Progress».

My apologies for failing to finish the model until May 27.

Decals applied and a layer of Future. Another day and the model is finished. It now remains to apply the oil, then the clear matte and paste everything (landing gear, propeller flaps and canopy).
