Bf 109G-6, 2./JG 52, "Black 5" (1/32 Hasegawa)

Recommended Posts

Been many moons since anything rolled off the assembly line of the "Luftwaffe Modeling Center of Mediocrity" but may I humbly present my latest creation.  After a long bout of lack of mojo I wanted something that went together with no fuss and muss and the Hasegawa kit fits the bill to a tee, superbly engineered and a joy to put together.  This was originally supposed to be a Rumanian aircraft but decal difficulties and even more difficulties steered this one into the winter white-wash zone.  My first winter camo scheme and pretty happy with the results.  
 
Add-ons:
Montex Masks for markings
BR32070 Bf 109G Wheels
BR32122 Bf 109G-6 Prop and Spinner
BR32155 Bf 109G-6 Intake and Exhaust Set (intake only)
Eduard Brassin Exhausts
Finemolds Seatbelts
Yahu PE IP
Finemolds brass Barrels for pod mounted MG 151 and pitot tube
Quickboost MG 131 barrels

 
As always thanks for looking!

Beautiful as always Mike!  Tried doing that exact same aircraft a few years back, didn't work out and ended up being repainted as white 12.

 

Always a pleasure seeing your work my friend.

Hey Frank!  Good to see you around, Buddy!  Thanks for the kind words, especially from a modeler of your caliber!  :punk:

Looks great, Mike! Nothing mediocre about that, and your photography makes it even better. May I publish it on the website?

Mike, your recreation of a white winter scheme is stunning! How did you do it?

Thanks, Jens!  The white wash was applied using Mr. Color White thinned down about 60/40 thinner to paint ratio.  This was applied over the standard 74/75/76 finish.  I had the needle almost all the way closed and built up the paint very slowly and inconsistently to simulate a worn finish.  After the paint was applied I hit some if the areas with a 3600 grit sanding square to simulate wear/scuffing of the paint.
