Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6

1/32 scale Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6 is available online from
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.
