Here's my build, ironically it was the next on my bench just because I liked the scheme so much, but with the new GB about to start worked perfectly.

 

No doubt I'll add some extras into the mix and have to snag a Revell late canopy (my second hand kit clear parts were MIA) :(

So it begins. I build the pit and side walls and glued one of the tail sections to the fuselage in prep for rivets. Now the problem, the hasegawa kit has the tall tail and my bird has the earlier tail, damn.

So having so many revell kits of the 109 I delved into the left over sprues and found an early version from the 109G-6 AS build I'm doing. Quick check and all looks OK so out with the razor saw...

Overlay to be double sure.

Both sides glued and test fit.

Next problem, tall tail wheel! Again hasegawa only have short one. I'd already grabbed my spare from the revell erla kit for the G-6 AS so scratching time and here's the result using the erla one as a template.

And test fit.

Pit installed, just went with the kit parts as an 109 is very difficult to see and very claustrophobic.

Getting all the sundries prepped

Installed the lap belts already, but leaving the top ones till later. These are from the Aires cockpit set I used on the 109G-6AS build.
