Messerschmitt Bf 109F-1 - Werner Mölders

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

Here is my Sweet 1:144 Messerschmitt Bf 109F-1 which I built in 2008.
It represents the machine flown by Geschwaderkommodore Major Werner Mölders, Stab./JG51, Luftwaffe, from Mardyck, France, in April 1941.

 

The Sweet kit is essentailly an F-4 so I had to make some modifications to make an F-1 (the F-2 is identical - the differences being internal). The changes involved adding a small intake on the starboard side of the engine cover, slightly reducing the diameter of the supercharger intake, filling in a panel line on top of each wing and squaring the oter ends of the main undercarriage bays. A final difference was leaving the bottom forward starboard corner of the (unarmoured) canopy unpainted.

The kit was fully painted and varnished with brush.

 

Thanks for looking
Miguel

Hi Miguel,

 

for such a tiny kit, you did a beautiful job! It must have taken the patience of a saint, not to mention a bionic sight to get such a great result!

Congratulations!!!

JR

That is rather lovely. I do like your mottling, I'd struggle to acheive that with a brush in 1/72.

I don't know if I had it then but for quite a while now I have been using a headband with magnifying glasses. I don't know how I made it without one!

Thanks Steve. Basically, I do it using the dry-brushing technique with a little more paint.
