Hello! Here is my 1:72 Hispano-Aviación HA-1112-K1L which I built back in 1999.

It represents C4J-10/“94-28”, of Escuela de Caza de Morón, Ejercito del Aire, in Spain, in 1950.

It's the Italeri Bf 109G-6 kit with the Dekno resin and white metal conversion set.

I recall the Italeri kit had some build issues on the wing roots and the resin nose differed a bit in width when compared to the Italeri fuselage so there was extra work involved blending the parts.

The kit was fully painted by brush and only varnished with airbrush. Decals were from the conversion set.

This is my favourite of the Spanish-modified Bf 109s. I like the profile more than that of the famous later "Buchón" variant. This variant has been released as a full kit by Amodel relatively recently.

 

Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome

Very nice conversion – it really looks excellent!

 

Just a question – didn't the Spanish AF apply black paint to the backside of the prop blades? Must have been a bit disconcerting to a fighter pilot to have a bright shiny disc in his field of vision when flying with the sun from the tail… 😉

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

Joachim, I have been checking several photos and it seems they didn't... 😎
