So i've learnt my lesson and i don't think that i will be that naive a second time, doing 3 Jackstands and believing to get away with it....

BTW the Camouflage & Markings of my Bf 109 for this build are fictitious

Base kit Revell & good amount of scratch parts and some Eduard Resin

 

All the best

Hans

One word: Incredible! I don't know which words of praise would be appropriate.

That looks great, fictional or not it's impressive work. Although you have wonder by that stage of the war any of  them survived long enough to end up on jacks.😉 Brilliant job though. 

 

One small, rivet counting pedantic point is that the little bit of wear on the propellor while realistically depicted, it's on the wrong side of the propellor. Because the BMW engine rotated clockwise as seen from the cockpit. But then again perhaps that's why it needs work. 😅

One small, pedantic point is that the engine isn't a BMW but a Daimler Benz DB 605 engine. 🧐

 

Kind regards,

😂🥵 Doh! Hoist by my own Petard. Must have been thinking of the Fw190. But nevertheless it rotated clockwise. 

😡

Honestly I should Google more and not rely on my very faulty memory. 

 

Now where did I leave my glasses?

Well now, that is stretching beyond the realms of model building into sheer artistry!

I could've been impressed by just the stands alone, but the Messerschmitt tops it off.

Awesome!

@noelh

no big thing, let's agree on it it has an engine that rotates.... 😄

I'm aware of this let's say little technical inaccuracy but in the end it's scale modeling, i just do like the effect and rely on my artistic license here...🙂

I appreciate that you like it though....
