1/48 Bf 109F-4 Trop Yellow Nose.


Recommended Posts

Evening,  

 

Here is my Eduard Bf109F4. I didn't fancy the schemes in the boxing I had so raided the spare decal box and made a JG27 machine as seen in the "Africa" combo boxing, complete with the attractive yellow nose. I could have gone with Marseille's machine, maybe next time!

 

Gunze and Tamiya exterior with Vallejo interior details. There is a fair bit of tonal variation on the wings and fuselage as I lightened/darkened various panels to break up the monotone RLM79 finish. There is some restrained chipping with a silver pencil.

 

Tyres flatted and pitot replaced with hollow tube. Everything hanging down. The spinner is held on with magnets. I found it centres more precisely that way and can be easily removed for  transport to shows. Amazingly it even spins.

 

A joy to build notwithstanding the cockpit is pretty busy and a bit of a tight fit here and there, especially the instrument panel.

 

Keep em coming Eduard.

 

Rick

Thanks Matteo

 

To be honest the aerial attachment is really weak on the 109 series. I was concerned that my Uschi thread wire would pull the aerial off when it was under tension. I’m going to get some epoxy for the canopy aerial then I will do it. 

Good spot though 👍🏻

..as depicted on the cover of a recent issue of ‘Avions’ magazine...Neumann’s machine, very nicely done....surprisingly for the Kommandeur I./JG 27 (subsequently Kommodore) most of his ‘kills’ were returned over southern England during the BoB

Thanks FalkeEins,

Interestingly seems to show white wingtips as well. I don’t intend to repaint it but if anyone knows definitively, I would be interested and in no way offended.
