Here is Hasegawa's 1/48 scale Messerschmitt Bf 109G-14.

Chris finished the model in the markings of Gefreiter Alfred Michel, who was shot down by anti-aircraft fire on his very first mission during Operation Bodenplatte on 1 January, 1945.



Some detail has been added to the model including the canopy restraint, canopy release lever, hydraulic lines for the undercarriage and starter crank. The exhausts have also been drilled out.



The model is painted using Gunze acrylics. Gunze's H421 RLM 81 has had some red-brown added, and their RLM 82 Green (H422) is applied straight from the bottle. The spinner spiral is airbushed, then touched-up by a fine paintbrush. The exhaust stain and panel lines are added with the airbrush. Chipped paint around the wing root and under the canopy is achieved with a silver artist's pencil.



Some of these photographs were taken with my Kodak DC280 Digital Camera. The camera's depth of field and control is not really adequate for detail model photography, hence the blurring at the edges of a few pictures (see above).
