Me 109 G-2 "Augsburg Eagle" 1/24 Trumpeter

Hi to all

we pick up where I left off.

 

correction of DB 605 / A engine calenders:

 

I make a thin strip from the sheet of metal to finish the internal moldings and then fix them

correction of the external fins of the cowlings: those of the kit appear slightly undersized

creation of the closing rails for the cowlings stops:

The idea is to be able to insert the cowling on two self-made tracks (as in the real model) so that it can be held without gluing it and to be able to optionally open or not the cowling and show the DB 605 / A in all its positions or keep the perfect closure and show intact its camouflage.

note: the cables and the various connections are sent back to the insertion of the engine inside the fuselage.

detail of the compressor fan:

1- I open the compartment to rebuild the fan seat with the help of a low speed electric cutter:

2- I remove the excess parts, sanding with the cutter with a round head file and finally I brush up with Mr. Surfacer 1000 liquid putty

3- I apply the micro-blades obtained from a thin flap of sheet metal inserting them delicately and individually close to the very small self-made pin and obtained from a residue of resin wrapped on the tip of the cutter

modification and detail of the oil tank :

wanting to keep the hatch open, I had to build both the internal and external part of the tank including the hatch and the power inlet. Also in this case, the connecting cables are returned with the motor switched on

dents in the auxiliary tank : it seems trivial and perhaps stupid but I can assure you that the realistic effect that is reproduced is absolutely interesting!

after having glued the two shells I made small and light depressions with the electric cutter at low speed so as to simulate the classic dents suffered by the tank often stacked against each other on the ground in the fast succession of missions

after having adequately sanded the interested parts, I reviewed and standardized all the work with a couple of passes of Mr. Surfacer 1200

Phenomenal work.  Clearly the step up to 1/24 allows one with your skills to really go nuts on scratch-built detailing.

Hi to all

Contact Resine resin accessories have finally arrived for spinners, propellers, controls surface, wheels:

Now I'll take care of correcting the compressor filter instead:

here you can see how the filter was cut with a rounded shape:

and here as proposed by the Trumpeter kit:

 let's proceed with the Kintsuglue modeling paste that will allow me to model the part until the desired shape is obtained and correct the filter cut:

apply a small amount of paste on the affected part:

I have to let the modeled part harden for 24 hours and then I can sand it, modify it and paint it easily:

Thanks for the attention

Hi to all

Work on the model continues!

I completely redone the prop support plate wanting to show the prop without and with the spinner.
