Description

 

Like so many others, I could not resist the call of the 1/32nd Messerschmitt Bf 109G from Hasegawa. I made this Finnish Gustav by mixing the parts from a G-6 and a G-14, .

 

 

MT-415 was delivered to the 3/HLeLv 34 on the 9th of April 1944. piloted by the Major and ace E. Luukkanen who made a triple at the command of this very plane. MT-415 was transfered to HLeLV 33 on the 4 th December 1944, then to HLeLv 31 on the 18th of July 1950, and was finnaly scrapped on 14 January, 1954! The plane totalled 591 hours 45 minutes flying time, and 20 victories.

Pictures are taken by Francois Verdu and the model is now in the collection of Mr Ilkka Saarilhati from Finland.
