  1. wow, great cockpit job,  nice floor effect, you are on a very interesting path with this Mustang, if you  want to be a  bit more accurate in that cockpit,  the radio battery rack which Tamiya calls for green was painted black  at the factory,  "everything after the seat was painted black in order to avoid sun reflection into the cockpit" here are some footage from NAA and some originally unrestored examples, keep the good modelling!!! cheers

    Good stuff!  Great scheme.  The 'Udet' symbol turned out super.  What is on the prop blade?

     

    Thank you.

    Sincerely,

    Mark

    Thanks Mark, I decided to redo the "Udet" emblem, a little better this time, the prop was masked with maskol, yes, It looked strange in the photo ;)  cheers

    Like the looks of that. Nice work 

    thanks Rigor, I'm glad cheers

     

    So some work has been done, painted the canopy (which has not the best fit in closed position) some details on the pilot, gears up , and still to do the wavy demarcation on the wedge of the wings, hopping soon to get on the finish line, cheers

    Good show.  Nice sculpting.

     

    Sincerely,

    Mark

    Thanks Mark, I really appreciate it coming from you, your builds have been very inspirational to me! cheers

    So, a bit more of progress, some chipping at the wing root, some decals, the "Udet" emblem  which I made my own decal, and some pigment work..

    until next, cheers

    That's really starting to come along now!

     

    Kev

    thanks Kev, yes little by little is getting there and I passed my temptations of scrapping all the paint  :D

    Had to amputate the feet in order to making him fit,   gave him some sunnies  and oxygen mask, needs some seatbelts now, cheers

    Love that.  Why not outline chevron?

     

    Thank you.

    Sincerely,

    Mark

    thanks Mark,  after studying closely the reference pictures I came to the conclusion that the Chevron's body has a solid color (yellow to me) and it was mottled after, also the lower cowling and air intake I will leave in rlm 76 not yellow as some profiles represent based on my observations.

    cheers

    the 76 doesn't look right on these pictures, at least not for an Erla machine

     

    here you have an Erla 109  looks right and accurate, also in these pics 75 looks too brownish,  that it is because the lighting set up I'm using and crappy  phone pictures, also the blue background plays an important role, better set up and camera I will use for final pics.

    more mottling  going on, cheers

    I am following this build with interest!  Looking very good so far.

     

    I can't get over how much your pilot, Kurt-Werner Brändle looks like Waffen SS officer Max Wünsche! 

     

    They could be twins!

    thanks mate, they sure look alike ;)

    following the "Erla Camo Pattern" some RLM 74 now, 

    cheers

    Muy agradable!  Antonio, 

     

    I have some Qs

    What tool did you use for rivets?

    What colour would you paint inside of radiator flaps on this bird  RLM 2 or.....?  

    I know some pics of RLM 2 shows brighter than real some time but this pics are a bit too bright to me:unsure:

     

    Saludos,

    Matsu.

     Gracias Matsu!

    for the rivets, I first use "Rosie the riveter" tool to mark the rivet position and then I engrave by hand individually with the beading tool, it is a painstaking process but the result is worthy.

    here is a link for the beading tool :http://umm-usa.com/onlinestore/product_info.php?cPath=21_22&products_id=1322&osCsid=bf122f0d1c501491e4dec444d37fecad

    about the interior flap colors I'm not 100% sure what color will use, I'll have to study references but yes it can be like 76 or 02.

    well hope today I'll finish the last minor details left  and give her a primer coat and start the painting very very soon, cheers

    That cockpit is surreal.  Is this build a re-paint?

     

    Thank you.

    Sincerely,

    Mark

    thank you Mark,  it's not a repaint, I did spray a sand color over the fuselage to check the rivet work and find imperfections on the surface, it needs proper cleaning also :D

    cheers


  11. I'm using Hasegawa's fuselage since the dihedral angle is a bit low so I donated the Revell wings and after some  cirugy for the landing gears finally it worked, Cockpit is almost done, needs some touches up here and there,  aires resin with Airscale instrument decals were used, fuselage rivets are also done although not showing in all these pics yet, an Erla model wearing their usual factory camo with sawteeth on the wings and round mottling  on the fuselage, also looks like it has been extra mottled in the field.

     

    Recently I acquired some wood 109 relics which will be using as reference for the colors 74/75/76 , here is the link thread if you are interested in checking it out.

     Cheers

  12. Hello everyone, time to build  this 109 up, going to represent this one:

    Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6/Late (G-14) "Gustav"
    "Double Chevron" II./JG 3 "Udet" 
    Schiphol, Netherlands, November 1943
    Major Kurt-Werner Brändle

    Kurt_Br%C3%A4ndle.jpg

    Kurt-Werner Brändle (19 January 1912 – 3 November 1943) was a German Luftwaffe military aviator during World War II, a fighter ace credited with 180 enemy aircraft shot down in over 700 combat missions. The majority of his victories - 155 - were claimed over the Eastern Front.

     he was killed in action west of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Following an attack by a group of Martin B-26 Marauders on Schiphol airfield, II. Gruppe scrambled to counter the attack. He was shot down in this aircraft - Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6 (Werknummer 26058) by Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) Spitfires under the command of Wing Commander Lloyd Chadburn. His body later washed ashore near Zandvoort on 30 December 1943. Brändle was 31 years old

    Hi, Antonio,  I like a lot of your colours on the my pc screen !!

    I'm working on tamiya 1/ 48 Bf 109 G-6 turn to G-14  W/ big tire bulges,

    I always mix some colours to paint my birds with colour I like,  Your colours are almost same as mine to using on my G-14   ^_^  

     

    Regards,

    Matsu.

     

    Thanks Matsu,  I would like to see how is your 109 turning out, do you have any links? you could post it also in the section "non-LSP works  I guess, cheers

    Gott im Himmel!  Your port side Hakenkreuz is turned about.  It needs to be facing so that the arms reach out clockwise.  Other than that, the paint job looks great.  A little super-fine wet sanding on your mottle will reduce your overspray. 

    ;)Thanks Gazzas,  the Hakenkreuz looks that way just because the picture is flipped, I only paint one side of the model so in order to compare with the reference images I did that, this was just a quick experiment and focus more on the overall colour balance , I didn't worry much about the other aspects which will take care in the 109 model coming soon, cheers mate!
