1/48 Messesrschmitt Bf 108 Taifun - Widerøe's Flyveselskap

Recommended Posts

Here are a few photos of my last finished model. It was built from Eduard's excellent 1/48 kit of the Bf 108 Taifun (Profipack edition). The model portrays a Taifun used by Norwegian regional airliner Widerøe's Flyveselskap for photographing and target tugging duties from the late 1940ies until the middle of the 50ies. I was in touch with Arctic Decals regarding custom decals, but they had troubles making the required cream colour. In the end, I got some APLS-printed decals in white, but ended up using the decals as templates for masks made from Tamiya masking tape. The exception is the logo on the motor cowling. Here, I over-sprayed the white decals with a mixture of transparent acrylics from Tamiya (mainly yellow) prior to application, in order to get the desired cream colour. The small text on each side of the fuselage behind the cabin window was taken from Lima November Decals' sheet of decals for Widerøe Beaver and Otter.

 

Regards,

Ragnar
