1/48 Eduard 109E7 Tropical, JG.27, Libya 1941.


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Here is my recently completed 1/48 Eduard Bf-109E7 Tropical in the markings of Jagdgeschwader (JG)27,  based at An-el-Gazala airfield in Libya in 1941 and flown by Ludwig Franzisket, who would go on to shoot down 24 aircraft over North Africa. Franzisket was shot down by Spitfires of the RAF on 29th October 1942, breaking his leg when striking the tail after bailing out. He would go on to command JG.27 and finish the war with 43 victories. He died in 1988. 

 

Built completely OOB, the build thread is below:

 

Paints are from MRP and as usual, went on flawlessly.

Excellent looking '09, close to perfection!

 

IMHO the dark green splotches look maybe a bit too soft edged, and an antenna would dot the i.

 

Kind regards,

I do like that Dave, now I've seen it on a decent sized screen, I reckon the soft edges to the green mottles work well with the sand colour to give a nice impression of dustiness, as these aircraft must have looked at times.
