Airfix 1/24 Bf109E (12002)

Recommended Posts

Hot on the heels of my 1/24 Stuka and 1/24 Hurricane, here is the old Airfix 1/24 Bf109E. As with the other two builds this is another one that is being made forty years after the last one I built! Forty years hasn't been too kind to my peepers and fingers but at least the larger scale is much more fun (and less frustrating) than the smaller scales!

It was built for the ATF 2017 Messerschmitts Group Build. National markings, swastikas, fuselage markings and "Ace of Spades" were painted using Montex Super Mask Airfix Bf 109 E-3(K2403). Aftermarket items used were Airscale 1/24 Messerschmitt Bf109E Instrument Panel (AS24 MEA), Eduard 1/24 WWII Luftwaffe Seatbelts (23003), Master 1/24 German 7.92mm MG 17 Barrels x 2 (AM-24-002), Aber 1/24 German 20mm Oerlikon MG FF Barrels x 2 (A24 004).

 

I've got the Airfix 1/24 Spitfire Vb, Typhoon and Mosquito in my stash to do but I need to find room to fit them in first before I start on them!

Great to see such a nice and clean build-up of this old classic!

 

In fact, I have that kit in the attic, bought in the autumn of 1972 as a start of my grown up model building period. The kit is still in its box, though… One of these days, I now I've got some inspiration!

 

My only remark would be that perhaps the finish is too dead matt – Luftwaffe paintwork usually had a slight but marked sheen.

 

Nice work!

 

Kind regards,

I should exhume mine from the Loft of Doom.  Agreed with Joachim that the finish is a tad too matt but still an attractive and unusual colour scheme.
