Here is the result of my last finished Model, which is the Revell 1/32nd scale Bf109 G-4 Trop.  The model was as usual a pleasure to build.

I used few MDC resin parts for it such as the Spinner, the complete interior and cockpit set, the exhaust racks and the wheels.  These parts were extremely easy to work with and they gave a great look to a really nice model.  The plane was painted with Gunze acrylics and the decals are from Eagle Strike except for the top which are the kit decals.  The number 10 was painted with the help of Black Magic Masks.  The JG 77 are from Mike Grant decals

The a/c chosen is the plane of Ernst Wilhem Reinert based in Castel Benito in January 1943 and was assigned to JG77.  I would like to thank, Erik Whipple for the JG 77 decals, Vincent Kermorgant for the technical help and all the MDC parts and Helmut Latochinsky, for the precious information on the camouflage scheme of this a/c.
