Messerschmitt 109 early series


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hallo

Scale 48 only now!

This is now a series of Messerschmitt 109. I will start with the A version as prototype. Now after a half year with modelling tanks, I wanted to switch back to my roots.

Many years ago, I built my last CA kit. So I started after breakfast and after cleaning my workbench.

As I said, I started in the morning. I cut all resin parts with my US cutter.

Anyone, who does not know about this tool:

This tool is the best invention after resin parts in modelling appeared.

No breaking of crispy parts anymore.

On th other hand, when I need a saw, I take my Japanese saw.

So, with this comfortable tools, working is easy and clean.

Afterward I took out all plastic parts and cleaned them, I went on the first assembly process.

The wings with wheel bay.

Of course, some thinning and additional grinding is necessary.

As with CA kit is usual. I got them easily together and glued them.

Then I checked the slats, and with some fitting work for increasing the holes for the levers, it was done.

Gap filling at the outer ends of the wing with CA glue. Getting the molded lights off, since they will be replaced by glass.

The cockpit is straight forward. The resin parts fit, without wall thinning!

So far it was done.

Time was left and I took out all etched parts and film.

My spraying will be with Montex masks. Just part of it.

So far for today.

As you see I completed my first Me 109 from CA.

It will become the V4.

The second one was an quick intermediate build an Airfix Emil 3 for Japan.

The last one from CA is a D version, the white 2 as on the box seen.

The kits from CA have a rudimentary resin. Awful.

The cockpit is nothing to be proud of.

Improvement ahead.

Well, tomorrow the paint job of interior of my D version will be done, and assembling, gluing, filling and polishing.

Next week the major paint jobs are on.

Happy modelling

Hallo

 

Some steps further now.

All models are sprayed with a grey primer color.

Then I went on the V4 and sprayed it RLM 63. The color I used was Mr. Gunze 332 and added some white to match the tint with the color chart.

Here I sprayed the model all over.

Used some paint with more white and highly diluted to get some highlighted panels.

Just a little bit to see. A taste. This will be a new aircraft. Now I spray the markings with Montex masks.

As you see the wrong paint scheme from the Airfix kit for the Japanese Emil.

This will be 74/75/76 than.

Well, so far today.

 

Happy modelling
