Description

 

Here is Hasegawa's 1/32 scale Messerschmitt Bf-109G-6 built straight out of the box with only a couple of small exceptions such as drilled out barrels.

Construction took roughly 20 hours over 4 days. The model is by no means a contest winner but I am happy with the result - most of all that it is finished!

Once the model was assembled (which took all of one evening to do) it was primed then painted using Tamiya Spray RLM 76 AS-5 as the base coat (not sure if its available stateside yet), followed up by lightened Testors MM2 Acryl for the remaining camo pattern. I used my cheapo Aztec airbrush for that.

The decals were applied and the model was finished off with some pastels, penciled in panel lines, and silver pencil nicks & chips. A final coat of extremely thinned MM2 flat coat (lacquer?) was airbrushed on to lock things in.

In my opinion, the kit practically falls together with little effort, and once finished has that sinister 109 appeal.

The only after market item used on the model was the decals - buy EagleCals! I'd like to add something about the decals. I love 'em, they're outstanding in my book. They went on with no silvering at all. That's over straight paint as well, no gloss coat or Future before hand, just straight on to the model with no complications

This was a really enjoyable build, a fun project reminiscent of my child hood days (not that long ago) of ripping into a model and finishing in over the weekend. I love the kit so much I plan to build one every time I "hit the wall" and AMS sets in.
