Fine Molds 1/72nd Bf 109G-10

Postby Bish » Fri Jul 31, 2020 6:25 am

This will be my second Fine Molds aircraft after building one of their Me 410's last year. I really liked that so am looking forward to this one. It will be built as a Nightfighter of NJG 11 in all over RLM 76. I'll be useing AM decals and well as an Fine Molds PE set, resin exhaust and master metal gun barrels.

Image

The 109 cockpit is sparesely fitted out. The AM PE set from Fine Molds is, not very large. I added the fuel line with some wire painted yellow. But i do think there is enough in there for a pit this size. haveing done several 109 pits with lots of PE and resin that you can't see, this is a nice change.

And fuselage went together and wings on.

Image

The final bits were added and then it was ready for painting. Contruction has been paiun free, just what i had hoped and expected from an FM kit.

Paint went on quickly as its an all over RLM 76 with just some black along the wing roots.

And then the decals, these did not take long either. The only stencil is the fuel triangle above the 4 on the left side.

A couple of years ago,a member on FSM built a similar aircraft, can't recall what kit, he also used H Model decals. he pointed out a couple of errors and gave me a great link. One error was the fuselage cross, which is to small in the decal set. So i used one from my decal stash. Another error is the rubber, which the decal set shows is white. This seems to be from a photo taken from the rear right where the rubber is at an angle and the sun is catching off it. Other images clearly show it blue. They seemed to have used this one photo rather than use several which could have put them right.

Not got much left to do before this is done. I will have to restrain my self as to the weathering as the images show the aircraft is spotless. They were apparently kept well polished to help increase speed. Important as their main prey was Mosquito's. So it will just be some light exhaust stains. I also need to scratch shrouds for the exhausts which were bigger than normal because of its night fighter role.

More soon.

Excellent job Bish
Building a kit from your stash is like cutting the head off a Hydra, two more take it’s place.

Quite nice work!

Nice work on a very cool subject! I really like the look of these RLM76 109's. This one is very clean but I wouldn't say spotless...

Thanks guys.Kim, i have not seen that last image. ye, your right, i was exagerating a tad. I will give it a very light Flory wash. But i do believe those pics were taken after it was captured, so not sure how long it was sat there. I certainly won't be giving it a panel line wash.

Looking good Bish. Was the panel lines puttied over on these to decrease drag?

Thanks guys.

Floki, i have not found any referance indicating they were. Its possable as the rear fuselage looks very smooth in the photo's, but there do look like panel lines over the engine.
