Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4 'White 5' (Airfix 1/72)


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Here is my latest model: a 'classic' Messerschmitt Bf109E-4.

The kit is the Airfix one in 1/72.

I wanted to finish it with a white nose and found this option on an Almark decal sheet.

I added a few details, from scratch or from aftermarket. The WIP can be found here: WIP Messerschmidt Bf109E-4 - Airfix 1/72

 

Cheers,

 

Antoine

Hi Antoine,

 

you have built a lovely 109! The Airfix kit looks very convincing and your take is spot on!

Congrats! I have one, for unknown reasons, on the  shelf of doom and a couple more in the stash... one of the best buys I have made in the last few years!

Shame you decided to give the svastikas a miss, as it would have added character.

 

Well done.

Hello,

 

Thank you all for your encouraging comments.

 

@veg, can't wait to see yours on the forum

 

@jean, with regards to the svastikas, according to Almark, they were painted out.  Even if I wasn't able to verify Almark instructions with a picture of the actual aircraft, I happily decided to believe them. Now, was I right or not? Here is a question for the Experten. 🤔

 

Cheers,


Antoine

Nice work.  👍  I'm just finishing up an Airfix 109 myself.  First attempt at a German WW2 fighter and possibly my last... The mottling is a real ig-pay to paint!
