1/32 Hasegawa Bf-109G-10

  Turkey Republic Day 

 

This is my 1:32 Hasegawa Bf109G-10.  It is a well known kit for large  scale builders.  It usually fits well but the weak cockpit needs some aftermarket goodies.  As for decals, I picked Heinz Ewald's profile with a small pork (Looks great, doesn't it? :) )
 
I used Eduard's colored seat belts for 109G types.  Beside that I cut off middle part of fuel pipe in cockpit and filled with Testor's clear fix for transparent look.  Also, I used old PE parts and piece of sprue for canopy mechanism.  The last Aftermarket item was Quickboost's 109G/K resin exhaust pipes.  I must admit I am impressed with Quickboost's quality.  I guess I will keep buying their  stuff.

Modelmaster RLM 76/81/82 used for painting.  And I added a bit flat white into RLM 81/82 and applied into panels for some 'weathered' look.  Tamiya's X-22 was used for gloss coating and for matt I used Humbrol's. 
It was fun to built.  I can recommend Hasegawa's 1/32 scale Gustav to modellers who like big Luftwaffe birds.  Just a minor challenge for wing roots and a pair of seatbelts are required..
 
Happy modelling..
