Messerschmitt Bf-109 G-10 (White 44) 1/72 AZ Model


Recommended Posts

Very neat build!

 

But I feel (my own humble opinion…) that the panel joints are much too heavily emphasised, lending the model a somewhat toy-like look.

 

The longitudinal fuselage joints are IRL all but invisible…;-)

 

Kind regards,

Stunning work.

Unfortunate to hear about it being a difficult build as a have one in the stash.

Very nice work! 

 

I'd be interested to hear about how you deal with the infamous fuselage gaps on that kit! "Difficult to build" is an understatement.

Yes I would be curious to hear your experience as I have about 4 of these in the stash and they look real nice in the  box. 

 

Lovely result on this as the 109 looks fetching in the all-76 colour scheme and the RAF roundels give it a splash of colour. 

Thanks

Beautifully done and finished though I too think the panel lines are over-emphasised, but that is a personal opinion. I prefer a more subtle highlighting.

I've got several AZ Models Bf 109s in my stash and I have only used one for a Kora conversion so I still haven't experienced that "difficult to build" comment. Oh dear!

Looks great and I really like the panel lines as they are. I have built a few of these and it depends on the variant - I built the G-6AS (AZ7509) and had a lot of challenges with fuselage fit. But I have also built G-2 (AZ7466) and had no issues at all

Hi Guys,

 

I am glad you enjoy my work. Well, the general problem with this kit is that the fuselage is too narrow so you cannot assemble the cockpit and there is a huge gap between fuselage and wings. To solve it I had to put 0,5mm plastic sheet to the halves and then reconstruct details lost during sanding. I think this problem is typical to G-6 A/S, G-14 A/S and G-10 kits as they all are based on the same fuselage in AZ Model kits. But I have to say that although it requires lots of work, it may look really eye-catchy when you finish it. 

 

BTW, there was some reissue of these kits (new tool) and they are supposedly corrected by the producer - don't know, didn't check it. 

 

Here are some in-progress photos of my G-6 A/S so you can see what needs to be done.

The ‘reissue’ new tools do go together a little easier - at least you can get the cockpit between the fuselage halves without too much hassle and the wing/fuselage gap is not quite so bad..great work by the way!

Hey,

 

nice build and a very interesting scheme.

Which G-10 kit of AZ model did you take?

The plane should be a Mtt Regensburg product (?). AZ have the other factories Erla, Diana, WNF as kits.

Which is the nearest for a non-rivet-counter ?

Hi,

 

from my neck of the wood, I had not heard anything challenging about these AZ 109s. I was thinking about purchasing a couple of Gs, but I think I will wait a tad....

Coward? Me?

 

I love your build.

A nice build of a difficult kit.  The weathering is your choice of representing this kit and your artistic license.  I appreciate the effort that went into it and thanks for sharing.
