Hobby Boss 81751 1:48 Bf 109G-6

Recommended Posts

Photos of my latest build, Hobby Boss´s Bf 109G-6 in 1:48.

The only fit problems I could find were with the nose covers (a bit oversized), a cockpit piece that was in the way of a good fitting cockpit, and what I think was an oversized control panel that had to be trimmed.

The model was brush painted, and the fuselage camouflage was handpainted, without guides, I´ll use Tamiya tape for the next 109, seeing they always have straight fuselage camouflages.

I used Hasegawa´s Bf 109G-6 1:32 painting instructions for this model.

Use plenty of water if you´re planning on using the kit´s decals, they tend to stick on the surface.

As per real life photos of this aircraft, the fuel tank, its mount and the underwing cannons were left behind.

Nice hand painting. Did you gloss coat the plane before putting on the decals. This would help you position them. Then use a mate coat to seal them in.

Still you got them on and looking good.

Yes, the aircraft was glosscoated before adding the decals and then mattcoated, it´s one of the things I won´t forget about scale modelling.
