    thanks for that pic Antonio, I haven't seen it before - interesting it doesn't show the black tail - I assume that came later. Also very little exhaust staining so that will save me trying to do that badly :)


    thanks again - great find!

    mu honor Peter,  no words for your sublime  build :)


    not sure if you've seen these  also, cheers

    Interesting link, thanks Antonio    ugqJhBO.gif


     Thanks gents for your words! cheers


    wings are glued,  also I increased the dihedral angle  which is a bit flat on the Hasegawa 109s, with plasticard and sanding the wing inner reinforcement, cheers















  3. I shouldn't get distracted from my Mustang build but I couldn't resist to start this one.... So, using the Hasegawa Bf 109 F2 kit as base to upgrade to the G2 version, it will be a "in flight" display so cockpit  will closed  with the pilot figure and not much of the details visible, this is the progress so far, cheers









  4. Messerschmitt Bf 109G-2/R6 IV./JG5 Yellow 3 This G-2 Werke nr. 14649, has been found by a ROV on 60m deep outside Norway. The pilot, Gunter Seraphim survived, but probably got killed in another plane crash on April 10 1945 at Schweringen.

    I really like the extra detail you are adding to this model, which sets it off from the rest.  Great job!




    Thanks Chuck, very appreciated from a superb  modeler like you, we are working both for NAA  aircraft at the moment :) cheers

    Amazing work!  If anyone wants to take the easy way for these markings, Fundekals includes them on their P-51 stencils sheet.   

    thanks  John  for the info,  there is a new Alclad decals  in the market, coincidence? ;)




     I have not update since it's been boring stuff and not much visual, lots of sanding and filling rivets/panel lines... still more to sand and prime ahead but getting closer to the paint phase,  most of the "silver" paint has been striped using superglue cleanner, I find out by accident, it works fine and does not damage the plastic,  the wheel bay will be closed since is the position  depicted in the image I'm rendering, so that excuse me from losing my mind  with those pipes and wires detailing :lol:

    also  a big shout to my friend Mathieu who kindly  sent me  stencils made  in the silhouette   for "Ferocious Frankie"  markings, cheers

    I like that.  What typeface and point size?


    Thank you.



    no idea Mark I didn't make it myself,  just  reworked  the one used in Olivier's build,  the  alclad sheet I posted needs to be reduce to a 15% to  make it 1/32 scale, hope it helps, cheers mate!

    Amazing. I have never seen anyone attempt to replicate this. And there are a multitude of Mustang builds out there! This is truly something special. Way to go!


    Cheers,  Tom

    thanks for your kind words Tom,  although I'm not the first in doing this, I was inspired by Olivier's "Misurii Armada" wheel bay in 1/48 and also I've seen in other builds, thanks for comment anyway mate! cheers ;)

    Impressive work so far Antonio. I'm looking forward to seeing how the pilot turns out!


    Cheers Bevan 

    thanks Bevan,  I printed a pilot last year, it came out quite well in 1/48 scale so in 1/32 scale   will  have even more  resolution detail,  cheers
