1/48 Hobbycraft Bf-109C-1

Gallery Article by Alain Tricot

 

This was my first 1/48 scale kit in 20 years, I was building  only 1/72 kits before. I change scales because I was working on a 1/72 Fokker D VIII by Eduard.  When I finish it and look at it, I said to my self God damned we can't see nothing in the cockpit ":-( , so I went back to my old scale.

This is the Hobbycraft kit with a Hasegawa canopy, I rechap the cooler nose section  and the nose gun area completely, put brass guns in the nose and wings. 

The shark mouth is tape and paint with the airbrush, it is a plane of the 2/JG 71 in the summer of 1939 just before the Poland attack, you can see it in Bf 109 in action part one.
