Werdna Posted May 11, 2022 Share Posted May 11, 2022 Hi all This is Eduard's 'problematic' 1/48 D-9 kit. Fortunately, this is my last one I have, so I don't have to build any more of them . Finished in the markings of 'Black 12' 500658 from KG(J) 27 - an ex Bomber unit whose pilots were re-mustered into a fighter wing at the end of the war. According to records, this aircraft was lost in combat with P-51s on 1st April 1945. No photos exist of 500658, but I've tried to model it on other D-9s from the 500 series, and there is evidence of the green/white checker band on other KG(J) 27 aircraft, including 109s and 190As. Painted with a mix of Vallejo and Mig, using some old Montex masks from the spares box and kit decals for the octane and glycol stencils. Painting/masking the checker strip was fun! Anyway, hope you like the pics.. 37 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
