Eduard 1/48 Bf 109e-3 JG-2

Recommended Posts

From a year and a half ago or so. 

 

Weekend e-3 kit (priller jg51 one) with superfabric belts added. AM decals. 

 

Quite a bit of work along the spine (top and bottom) to restore the rivets as they were very shallow. Also oil cooler/chin had a bad seam but think that was my fault getting the engine block in wrong and throwing things out of alignment.

 

Primed in mr surfacer and sprayed in 02/71 over 65 with xtracrylics, masked with tamiya tape for the hard edge. 70 prop and spinner. Oil washes and some postshading for weathering. Their satin varnish at the end. 

 

Another one thats gonna be sold so thought I'd immortalise it here first...

 

Great kits, got a load in the stash of these still to do. 

 

Hope you like it.

Great job and superb photos! This is one of my favourite schemes on the early 109's and even more so with Bonzo the Dog! Very nicely done.

Dankie broer!

 

The pics are just done with a sheet of flipchart paper as a backdrop and on my workbench. Used my iphone 5c. No apps just normal camera. Same pics that are now advertising it for sale on that auction site 👍🏿

Another great build Tony - for me the Emil is THE Bf 109 - and you did this icon justice.

 

Cheers,

Michael

And again Congratulations !

Nicely done kit, The early Bf 109's are back...

The Eduard seem to be one of the best rendition of the Emil.

Thank for sharing.

Another ace build, with superb finish and happily very subtle weathering, as behoves a Luftwaffe machine from that early war era.

 

Ailerons seem to have a similar problem as the FW 190…

 

A small detail – it might be worthwhile to add a blob of matt dark grey in what should be an orifice at the front end of the exhaust sheath, to create the illusion of an opening.

 

Impressive modelling skills on display!

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

Thanks Joachim, 

 

I thought the ailerons did drop with the flaps down on these 109's? Or was that only the G models? 

 

And yes I see where you mean with the darker colour to give the impression of depth/hollowness at front of stacks, I will sort that tonight and put a new pic up! 

 

Thanks for the tip 👍🏿

I am pretty sure now that the ailerons did droop to 11 degrees when flaps are down 👍🏿

 

But yes this feature is incorrect for the 190.
