Me Bf 109G-6/R6 Trop - 1:72 Hasegawa

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!


Here is one of several Bf 109Gs I built during the last couple of years (this one in 2016). It's the Hasegawa 1:72 Bf 109G-6, but the old kit, before they made new tools.

It represents Bf 109G-6/R6 Trop White 9, flown by Oberleutnant Emil Clade, Staffelkapitan 7./JG27, Luftwaffe, Kalamaki, Greece, January 1944.

This was an enjoyable OOB build with pilot included (for old times' sake!), except for the decals which came from an Academy kit since those of the kit had yellowed and were poorly printed anyhow (Academy, Italeri and Hasegawa all had this option!).

It was completely painted and varnished by brush and I was very pleased with how it came out.


Thanks for looking

You should be pleased- came out v well. Very impressive brush work - especially the mottling which rivals most airbrushed efforts I’ve seen. Well done 👍

Thank you for the pic of that lovely box art. I still remember it from their 1992 catalogue.  That white I-16 diving in frozen lake.

Not bad at all.


Tho you need to seat the pilot a bit higher up, they were sitting on their parachute packs.

That's why their pilot seats had a sink.

A mistake that is too often repeated
