Revell 1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109 G-10, 11/JG 27


Recommended Posts

Revell boxing of 1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109 G-10, of 11/JG 27 based at Schleswig-Holstein March 1945 (at least that's what the instuctions say.

The instructions are also dated 1998 and I have been reliably informed that although fairly basic the accuracy of shape is second to none.

Eduard etch set for cockpit and inside chin scoop, Hasegawa pilot figure from their Luftwaffe Pilot Figures & Equipment set and a basic attempt to add subtle rivets using the Trumpeter Master Tools Rivetter.

Freehand airbrushed upper surface camo scheme and first attempt at freehand airbrush mottle.

Just missing antenna cable which I will add soon.

Will also need to change the Morane antenna mast under the port wing to natural wood as I have just learned here they were wood and just clear varnished.

Couldn't get the stand attachment out. It was well and truly wedged in.

And the three 1/48 scale builds on one stand.

Very nice build and finsh of a trailblazer kit – the first accurate late 'G' with the 'refined' cowl.

Microscopic point: the antenna mast under the port wing should, according to RLM instructions, be left in varnished natural wood.

Nice collection you've got there!

Kind regards,

Joachim

Thank you Joachim.

It's the Morane antenna mast and I spotted that when posting the RFI.

I have just added the antenna line to the tail and will be repainting the Morane antenna housing soon(ish) :)

Adjustments made :)

Sorry about the poor picture quality just took these two with the phone camera.

Used fine E Z line for the antenna lead and Tamiya Wooden Deck Tan (XF-78) followed by Xtracrylix Gloss Varnish for the Morane antenna under the port wing.

Looks a bit washed out in the pictures but seems a reasonable match in life.
