In the Box

 

Here is a Jerry Rutman production piece, the1/32 Messerchmitt Bf 109-K4.

The main parts of the kit are vacuum formed. It also features resin detail parts including the cockpit, propeller, spinner, rudder, tailplanes etc.

 

 

Parts are well produced no major flaws whatsoever.

The kit is rounded out with a decal sheet including national insignia and stencils.

 

 

Construction

 

After all the vac parts are cut out, the Rurman Bf 109K-4 builds rather easily.

The resin parts really speed up the building process.

 

 

Painting and Markings

 

The model looks great after painting. I used a couple of different paints to finish this model:

Xtracolor RLM 82, Polly Scale RLM 75 and Testors Model Master RLM 76. I have no problem mixing enamel an acrylic paints on a model. Just let them dry there should be no problem with.

I used Cutting Edge masks for the national insignia. They work great - easy to use and the results are outstanding. The spiral spinner is also painted using a Cutting Edge mask.

 

 

I now have a 1/32 Bf 109K-4 just before Hasegawa releases their G-6!

I enjoyed building this kit. Vacform models aren't difficult, just different.

The pictures were taken by my friend Tom Reavely.
