Allright....

Decided to do a Bf109E series....but wich one......

As usuall...my kits are secondhand unbuilt kits factory sealed bags...from one of my favorite stores Hobby Bokhandeln in Stockholm......

Well over to the specimens...wich one hmmmm....

Ive builded theese before...they got shortrun feel...fitting isues such as...
Wing root...the belly where the wing meets fuselage....and the classic cooler intake under the engine....

Well..the modellers best friend on this kinds build is Time and Patience...

Enough talking.....

Wich one...hmmm

Another adventure awaits.

I actually prefer the E-4, but the E-1 had its fair share of attractive schemes as well, so it really makes no difference.

I really didn't consider the double at first but it is a grand idea and just think of the possibilities for a vignette or diorama

:hmmm:
