Bf 109 STGB - 29 May 2021 to 29 August 2021

Recommended Posts

Although we've had a previous edition for this subject let's all get together and do it again from  29 May 2021 to 29 August 2021

 

Eligible builds: Messerschmitt Bf 109 including prototypes and racers, production models from A to Z and their direct descendants, Hispanos and Avias! Regarding Me 209:s, 309:s etc… I´m sorry but we need to say "no" to them. If you want to build a V-tail G-0 go ahead, as long as you build one of the actual prototypes!

SO, NO WHIFS! Spanish Civil War, WW2, Israeli early years, WW2 movie planes, post war- use in various European air forces - you just can´t say there isn´t enough build options in planes that actually existed.

Co-host?) Note question mark. He hasn't offered but rather is getting press-ganged into it by his fellow co-hosts :whistle:

No objections here, @Sturmovik, @f111guru, & @Walter might be interested in a 109 group build as well ?

Sounds cool, 2021, why so far away,  excuse my ignorance. 

Only because, Ghost Rider, the pattern is full! There are at least these future STGB:s with already allocated slots, I may have missed one or two 😕

  • P-51 12/19-3/20
  • Stuka 1-4/20
  • Lancaster 2-5/20
  • S´fire 4-7/20
  • Corsair 5-8/20
  • Buccaneer 5-8/20
  • T-34 6-9/20
  • He 111 7-10/20
  • Tonka 9-12/20
  • Pz V 10/20-1/21
  • Pz III 2-5/21

The A-4 Skyhawk proposal stands currently at 21 and both F/A-18 and MiG-25 at 16, so likely to reach the Calendar before this one. Welcome aboard! V-P

Please add me to the list - I have 2 x 1/24 Airfix kits languishing in the loft that I haven't had the will to build, but this might just spur me into action.

Sure! I'm down for the GB! Someone just needs to remind me there's one I'm participating in 2021.

Welcome to the fun everyone and apologies for not making the time to respond on a more personal level. Here we are now at 13 names already and a couple of potential projects shown by way of Erwin's 48th scale Fujimi G-K kit and BIG X thinking to get not one but two of the Airfix 24th scale 'Superkit's down from the loft. For my own part there's a pair of the Eduard 'Overtrees' 45.5th scale G-6 kits in a box under the bench with one set of decals in there to create a Croatian machine and another set of decals on the way for Yugoslavian options with a plan to try for the UMe-109 conversion. What's everyone else planning?

Haha... I don't plan to deviate from building 72nd scale aircraft models only. My last AZmodel Gustav will be built before this GB so the workbench will be clear for one or two of them  Tamiya G-6 delicacies. Of the 14 Bf109:s in my display cabinet, only 11 are models of Finnish AF MT:s. I see no reason to add to the non-Finnish part of them 🙂

Is this a good plan?

Sounds a good plan to me @vppelt68:) Any thoughts on which more Finnish schemes you'd like to do?

Erm... Maybe I tried to write it in an unncessary complicated way 😁. Definitely a Finnish scheme, no other options!

Nah it was me not reading you right. I've also had a quick look at the Finnish 109s and didn't realise quite how many great schemes they were painted in so it looks as if you've plenty options :D

Two plus builds for me, and the leading contenders are. one of these two bare metal G6’s. xyPlkzm.png

I've come across 'Red 8' recently as a subject somewhere but can't remeber if it was a decal sheet or an option in one of the AZ kits @Corsairfoxfouruncle but the Yugoslav-based G-8 looks particularly interesting. An interesting selection of options you have there :speak_cool:

Red “8” and Green “5” are both options on Eduards and AZ kits and there’s an A/M sheet with the G8 but I've already done the G8 once before a few years ago. I just like the camouflage on that so its one i may re-do. I do believe the “Marseille” 109 is widely available in every scale so wont be hard to find or replicate.
