1/48 Wooden Bf109 G-6


Recommended Posts

Hi folks, it's been a bit of a weird summer, so I hope you are all keeping well.
Here is a beech and mahogany Bf109 G-6 in 1/48 scale. Took me quite a while to do this one, I started full of enthusiasm then quickly lost my way as I got the underside of the nose wrong. It languished on the table in a pile of sawdust and despair for a few months while I gathered the momentum to finish it. For a plane that looks like it was designed only with straight edges it was surprisingly hard to get it to look correct; the machine gun blisters were also a right pain to get symmetrical.
Anyway, I'm glad I persevered as I think it came out OK in the end.
Thanks for viewing, hope you like it :)

Nick

I didn't know Beech built Bf 109's !

Teak it from me it's a really good representation.

Ash anyone on here and they'll agree

Elm totally convinced of that.

Oak-ay I'll stop now before you get sycamore of my dreadful humour.

[Wooden dare call them puns].

Measure once, cut twice, swear lots, sand, sand, sand, throw away and start over...
