'Low Viz' Friedrich!!!!! - Eduard 1/48 - Bf109F-2


Recommended Posts

This is my second build from the Eduard Royal Boxing of the Bf109F 1/48th, this time an F-2. Virtually built O.O.B. with some extra detailing in the cockpit.

 

I chose this particular machine for its colour scheme, originally delivered in standard RLM 74/75/76 it was overpainted in the field with mottle consisting of RLM 02/70/79. Model was painted using AK True Colours, decals from kit, Black 12 came from Tamiya Fw190D-9 kit. The name under cockpit was home printed, yellow outline painted freehand. I used Mig Lucky matt varnish for final coat, not too sure of this stuff took about three coats and I wasn't too happy with the final result seems to be very uneven finish!

 

This machine is a Bf109F-2 flown by Uffz. Peter Bremer, 2./JG54, Russia, Autumn 1941:-

You have to admit the yellow theatre markings and striped pitot certainly add to the 'Low Viz' idea!!!!!!!!

Excellent job on what must have been a difficult scheme to paint! Strange scheme, but I like it!

The build is excellent, the diorama wonderful and the paint work is out of this world great!

Very nicely done. I can't say I've ever seen that scheme before but that's why I like modelling 109s, there are so many different schemes to choose from.

Excellent  '09, standing out among the crop of Messerschmitts thanks to the delicate oversprayed camo and it gets a life of its own in the effective diorama.

 

Enjoyable model!

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim
