Hi everyones, thanks to Brad.... I felt the calling to bring something different than a P-47 and P-51.... a Gustav 109 Brad confirmed me that most of the JG5 was involved in Norway against the Mighty Heighth, protecting submarine bases. Never did any messerschmitt before, and my knowladge about WWII are very basic since my interrest are mostly into jets. I found that subject nice and a tempting challenge. Just ordered some goodies and will start soon. Thks for watching and have fun, Dan.
Okay, so it's been a while since I've worked on an aircraft. Spent the past year finishing up a bunch of armor builds - five, I believe - so started in on this to break up the monotony of endless road wheels. This also marks the first wheels-down build I have done since I was a teenager roughly 38 years ago. Everything I've built from that point has hung from my ceiling in flight. Mistakes were made, things were forgotten, small bits were knocked/broken off repeatedly, the tail wheel broke off after the fuselage was sealed, all the good stuff. I also used Mr. Color for the first time after nothing but Tamiya and Vallejo for the longest time, so, you know... Kit is nearly OOB; I added some Airscale placards inside where you can't even see them, and used EZ Line for the over-tied aerial.The decals themselves are a mix of stencils from the kit and markings from Eagle Strike Augsburg's Flyers Part III, and is supposed to represent Black 8 of 2./JG302, October 1944. Chose it because it was a little different from the others. Accurate? Who knows? Just getting warmed back up for aircraft, is all. Not great, hopefully not too terrible. Didn't weather it too heavily as I wanted it to be a relatively new plane, plus being Late War I wouldn't expect it to survive long enough to get very dirty anyway.
