Messerschmitt Bf 109E-7
by Christian Bruer
Lt. Werner Schroer, April 1941, Africa
1/48 scale Messerschmitt Bf 109E-7/Trop is available online from
The model is from Tamiya in 1/48 scale. I built the
model straight from the box and only added new wheels from True Details.
To build this model was very easy because everything
fits together beautifully.
I used Xtracolor paints. I like this plane because of
its interesting colour scheme. Most of the desert planes of the German
Luftwaffe used only a light blue (RLM 78) under surface and desert
yellow (RLM 79) for the upper surface. Here we see a mottled plane with
light blue, desert yellow and green (RLM 80). The decals are from War
Eagle This sheet includes also decals for a Bf 109F-4 flown by Werner
Schroer in November 1942.
After a coat of varnish I started weathering with water
Finishing touches included small parts like the landing
gear, canopy, antenna and the wires for the canopy and the sand filter.
