made this kit seven years ago; I thought of all pilots which weren’t famous
but died in their flying machines defending a right or wrong ideal.
This is the Me 109 G14 ASC flown by Oblt.Ernst Scheufele in 1944 with 14./JG44. Main characteristic of the markings was the pilot's girlfriend's name on right of fuselage: “Peterle.” and black 13 always on two side of fuselage.
After decalling was done, flat clear cote and washing with oil colors and I glued all exterior pieces: landing gear, canopy, spinner and antenna cable; for it I do not use thin fishing line but I draw fuse sprue with a nail. The result is a line very very thin as hair.
