First fresh build for 2019. Just finishing off a P51 from the 15th FG 308th

This is part 1 of a 2 ship build based up Piotr Forkasiewicz artwork for the eduard 1/48th G10 profipack.

I recently picked up the Japo KG(J)6 109 book and it has several erla built machines which feature the red and black chequered defence band so a red stripe/red chequered build off was on.

 

I haven't decided upon the exact plane just yet.

When I saw the AMUR Reaver spinner, I thought you might be using their cowling as well but I see you have different plans with the AIMS engine!

Hi John

 

Funny you say that as I do have it in the stash and after your epic build fancied a go. The aims bits came out (top gun cover and lower cowling) so put it back. I've about 3 more Revel G-10's in the stash so it will get used when I pluck up the courage LOL

And we're off...

Trying to 'build' quicker/smarter than previous efforts so starting with the main parts and the associated am.

 

So with this in mind spent a couple of hours removing, cleaning and test fitting the Barracuda wing inserts and Aims new top cowling.

Pleased to say both were quick and easy with a great fit.

Thanks Bevan. 

 

Look forward to seeing some of your 109's too. I use your cockpit weathering techniques as standard for my builds.

May I ask where you bought it from?

Excellent start to the build, Aaron!  I like how the Barracuda parts fit.  I had trouble with my wing inserts from Alley Cat (too small) and ended up buying the G-6 kit to get the small wing bulges on my build.

Thanks. They'll need a shim of plasicard on either their edge or the fuselage but otherwise spot on. I did get a touch worried when I first tested as they were a bit depressed but after the wheel bays were installed they took the same shape as the outer wing.
