After checking this great website almost daily for one year now, I finally found the courage to send in my first submission to ARC.

There is not much to say about the kit. Hasegawa's Bf109's are superb and easy to build. I did it OOB. Paints came from Gunze and Lifecolor, the pilot figure was grabbed from Tamiya's Fw190D-9.

For references, I used Jochen Prien & Peter Rodeike's Book "Messerschmitt Bf109 F,G,K Series" (ISBN 0-88740-424-3). In there are two pictures of this particular aircraft.

A big "thank you" goes to my friend Stefan Meier for his help and advice when it came to building the base for this model. Believe it or not, it was done in three hours!
