Finished this one tonight, after a VERY long battle that lasted right up to the end. Three different paint schemes on the same model, a new record for me! I must say, I am getting quite good at stripping down a kit after nearly finishing it and starting over. This one started out as red 6 of JG 300, on to black 5 of JG 52, and stripped it again to do white 12 of JG 51. You can see the WIP thread here. Here she is as red 6: And as white 5: And now, white 12: Final scheme using decals from Eagle Editions, which performed flawlessly. Their new sheets printed by Cartograph are good, REALLY good. Colors by Tamiya using custom mixes, weathering with oils. No AM parts used, save for scratchbuilt seatbelts, 20mm gun barrels from brass tubing, brake lines from fuse wire. Thanks for looking in!
Here's one in the works, another of Hasegawa's 1/32 Bf-109G-6 kits this time being built as "Rot 6" of 2./JG300. The top aircraft on this Eagle Editions sheet: Built mostly OOB so far, with seatbelts from lead foil with Eduard hardware, a modified spinner mount, wire brake lines, brass strip tank strap, and brass tube wing cannons. I also modified the ETC rack fairing, opening up the lightening holes and adding some inner details. All built up, waiting for paint I also shaved off the front of the supercharger intake, and replaced it with a hand machined piece of tubing to get a perfectly round profile As this aircraft will be heavily over-sprayed with dark gray and black, I didn't worry too much about getting the factory paint perfect. As long as it was close, I am OK with it. A coat of gloss to protect things Next up, cutting some cross stencils to paint the upper wing, fuselage and tail bits. Then, the fun begins! Really looking forward to the later paint stages!
