Hello all... this is my first model share on this site so please go easy. Unfortunately I don't have the photography (or build) skills as others on here, but I've thoroughly enjoyed building it and am pleased with how it has turned out. The kit is the old Airfix 1/24 scale Bf109 onto which I have used some after market parts, namely: - Barracuda Resin Wheels - Yahu Instrument Panel - Scale Aircraft Conversions Metal Undercarriage Legs - RB Productions Seat Harness - Custom Decals (to my own design) Modification wise, I did a lot with the wheel wells (totally absent in the original kit), I also cut out the flaps so that I could pose them down and I cut out and replaced the moulded in exhausts. Anyway, enough rambling, here it is: Thanks for looking.
This will be my first entry in a group build, ever. I don't have the skills or experience to approach some of the work here, but I will refine the cockpit and add the non-existent wheel wells at the very least. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this release of the kit came with cuffless Hamilton Standard props. So, I'll do my best to turn an Airfix 1/24 Mustang IVa, Waldron seat belts, foil placards, oxygen hose and instrument dials into this: or this:
