Ship Defense...1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109E-4 Jagdfliegerschule 1/Jagdgruppe Losigkeit

Recommended Posts


And here´s the third of five Emils.

Hasegawa kit, legs shortened about 2-3mm, some decals from Aeromaster but they got the Stammkennzeichen wrong, the ones for the underwing are missing so are decals for the coat of arms of JFS1. My dad used Luftwaffe letter decals from Fantasy Printshop, and coat of arms decals from Peddinghaus (1/72 ones because the 1/48 were way too large).
Brake lines done with lead wire and plastic rods, the latter ones used also for the upperwing landing gear indicators, a piece of brass pipe for the antenna to fuselage insert, EZ Line for the antenna, AK Real Color paints for the RLM 74/75/76 camo.

Between February 14th and March 20th 1942, a bunch of pilots and aircraft from JG1 and Jagdfliegerschule (Fighterschool) 1 and 2 were sent to the far north to escort and protect German ships in Norway. The unit was called Jagdgruppe Losigkeit after it´s CO Hauptmann Fritz Losigkeit.

Yet another work of art Reini78! I think this is one of your best Bf-109's yet. I understand that you are retired, but I am still in awe of your production rate! Thanks for the build report.

Another nice one Reini. I always seem to like planes used in the Norway theatre.
