Messerschmitt Bf 109F-2

Messerschmitt Bf 109F-2

This is Hasegawa’s Messerschmitt Me 109F-4 kits in 1/48 scale. The markings represent an F-4 that was flown by Hauptmann Hans “Assi” Hahns of Jagdgruppen 2 “Richthofen” in 1942. There is some controversy surrounding this aircraft because of the red cowling and yellow oil pan with the red rudder.

 While stationed in Germany I spoke with several German friends who believe this aircraft did exist and after looking hard at the photos in the Squadron “In Action” book I tended to believe them enough to do the markings and paint that you see on this kit. One of the photos in the book shows an up-close shot of the cowling supposedly of this aircraft and the red on the rooster's head looks exactly like the color on the cowl.

I don’t pretend to be an expert on the 109. Even in its easiest form the 109 is one of the hardest models to build simply because of the wide variety of paint schemes.

I’m happy with the results on this model and I have wanted to do these markings for years. Finally after the other 50 or so kits that I have wanted to do got done I was able to finally do this 109. I think this kit would look awesome in 1/32 scale and that might be one of those ”just gotta do it” things.
